The First International Semantic Web Conference is now accepting

ISWC will be a major international forum at which research on all
aspects of the Semantic Web will be presented. ISWC 2002 follows up the
success of the first Semantic Web Working Symposium (SWWS), which was
held in Stanford in July, 2001. ISWC 2002 will take place on the
beautiful Mediterranean island of Sardinia, Italy, 9th-12th June, 2002,
immediately preceding the OntoWeb workshop. The list of accepted papers
is currently available at the conference Web site.

The Late-Breaking Articles/Poster session at ISWC is an opportunity to
discuss late-breaking results, ongoing research projects, and
innovative work-in-progress which may not yet be ready for a full
paper.  Technical posters, reports on Semantic Web software systems,
completed work, or work in progress are all welcome.

Submissions will be evaluated for acceptability by the Poster
Committee.  Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to
the Semantic Web, originality, significance, and clarity.
