innovative research areas such as Ontology Management, Semantic  Web 
Services or Semantic Desktop.

The Conference will be taking place from June 11th -14th on the

As an event at the forefront of Semantic Web research, ESWC 2006 is  
aiming to leave a significant semantic footprint. This legacy of the  
event will
include semantic markup generated from existing sources, annotations  
from delegates at the conference, and the experience of using leading  
Web applications to support a real event.
All participants in the conference can help create this legacy, and  in 
return gain experience of the entire Semantic Web lifecycle from  
knowledge capture to use and reuse. From now onwards  there will be 
opportunities to contribute to the project by providing  additional 
information and annotations when              registering,  submitting 
camera-ready papers, and at the conference itself.
