Call for Workshops
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

ESWC is a premier venue for discussing the latest scientific results and
innovations in the field of semantic technologies on the Web and Linked
Data, attracting a high number of participants from academia and industry
alike.

Co-located workshops at the ESWC conferences are essential meeting points
for discussing ongoing work and current results, as well as shaping new
ideas and research fields. We particularly invite workshop proposals
looking at Semantic Web related topics from an interdisciplinary
standpoint, proposals focussing on novel aspects of the Semantic Web and
Web of Data, and proposals aiming at gathering existing and forming new
sub-communities. We encourage the submission of workshop proposals on:

*        Fundamental technical and theoretical problems of the Semantic Web
/ Linked Data and Knowledge Graphs
*        Applications of Semantic Web technologies in domains such as
Mobility and Smart Cities, Life Sciences, Industry 4.0, Earth Science,
Digital Humanities, Law, Media, etc.
*        Key enabling technologies and their adaptation to the needs of the
Semantic Web
*        Aspects of Semantic Web research that have been neglected or
underrepresented so far
*        Techniques and methods from other research fields that are of
relevance for Semantic Web research (e.g., artificial intelligence,
databases, NLP, big data analytics, machine learning, human computer
interaction, information retrieval, web science, etc.)
*        New emerging topics and areas

In particular, we also encourage the submission of workshops that do not
follow the typical workshop format of a mini-conference.

General Information and Criteria
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Each proposal will be reviewed by the members of the workshop programme
committee, and ranked based on the overall quality of the proposal and the
workshop’s fit to the conference as detailed below. The review criteria are
as follows:

*        Workshops cover topics falling in the general scope of the ESWC
conference.
*        Clear demonstration that the workshop will be able to attract
participants.
*        Workshops should have a clear focus on a specific technology,
problem, or application.
*        There is a community interested in the workshop’s topic.
*        Workshops are intended to be genuine interactive events and not
mini-conferences.
*        Workshops with creative structures and organizations that attract
various types of contributions and ensure rich interactions are welcomed.
*        Workshop duration is normally expected to be half a day or a full
day.
*        We strongly advise having more than one organizer and no more than
four, preferably from different institutions, bringing different
perspectives to the workshop.

Please note that the duration of a workshop might need to be adjusted based
on the overall number of workshop submissions received.

Workshops need to clearly describe how they are planning to attract a
sufficient number of participants. Workshops that have less than 10 people
registered at the early registration deadline might be canceled.

The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own
reviewing process, publicity (e.g., website, timelines, and call for
papers), and proceedings production. Workshop organizers will be required
to publish their program schedule as RDF (the conference has a Semantic
Technologies Coordinator who will be your contact in this matter).

The organizers will also be required to closely cooperate with the Workshop
Chairs and the ESWC 2020 Local Chairs to finalize all organizational
details.

Workshop attendees must register for the workshop as well as for the main
conference days.

Workshop proposals have to be submitted via EasyChair at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eswc2020

Each proposal must consist of a single PDF document written in English, no
longer than four pages, which contains the following information:

*        The title and abstract, 200 words maximum, for inclusion on the
ESWC 2020 Website.
*        A brief discussion of why the topic is of particular interest at
this time.
*        A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of
interest, the workshop audience, as well as the expected number of
participants.
*        A brief description (draft outline) of the proposed workshop
format, discussing the mix of events and activities such as paper
presentations, invited talks, panels, hacking sessions, breakout sessions,
or general discussion slots, and an approximate timeline.
*        A description of the target audience and expected number of
participants.
*        A list of (potential) members of the program committee (at least
50% have to be known and confirmed at the time of the proposal).
*        An indication of whether the workshop should be considered for a
half-day or full-day event.
*        Related workshops and conferences, i.e. specify if this is a
continuation of a workshop series or is a new workshop to address an
emerging issue. Please provide information about past versions of this
workshop and other related workshops (including URLs and submission /
acceptance counts, if available).
*        Names and contact information of the workshop organizers/chair(s)
(name, affiliation, email address, homepage and short (one paragraph)
biography of each chair, explaining the chair’s expertise for the workshop
including past experience in organizing / facilitating workshops).
Preferably provide a single contact person per submission.

The best papers from each workshop may be included in the supplementary
proceedings of ESWC 2020, which will appear in the Springer LNCS series.
