2nd CFP - [Poster & Demo] [7th International Semantic Web Conference][ISWC2008]




To be held as part of 7th International Semantic Web Conference
26-30 October 2008, Karlsruhe, Germany

ISWC 2008 will hold combined poster and demonstration sessions. The
Poster/Demo Session is an opportunity for presenting late-breaking
results, ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative work
in progress. Posters and demos are intended to provide authors and
participants with the ability to connect with each other and to engage
in discussions about the work. Technical posters, reports on Semantic
Web software systems, descriptions of completed work, and work in
progress are all welcome. Demonstrations are intended to showcase
innovative Semantic Web related implementations and technologies.

Important Dates
* July 25, 2008: Deadline for submissions
* September 5, 2008: Notification of acceptance
* September 19, 2008: Camera ready abstracts due

(time: 23:59 pm GMT-10 (Hawaii))

Submission Information
Authors must submit a two-page paper with a short abstract for
evaluation. The abstract must clearly demonstrate relevance to the
Semantic Web. Submissions will be evaluated for acceptability by the
reviewers. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to
the Semantic Web, originality, potential significance, topicality and
clarity. If a poster will be accompanied by a live software
demonstration, authors are requested to submit an additional one-page
explanation of the demo, which will not be included in the poster/demo
notes. Submit the demo explanation as the third page of your two-page

A detailed list of suggested topics can be found in the calls for
papers both for the Research Track and for the Semantic Web In Use
track. Posters and demos are intended to convey a scientific result or
work in progress and are not intended as advertisements for software

Authors submitting a full paper to another track in ISWC 2008 may also
submit the same work for consideration in the Demo/Poster track,
either before or after result notification for the full paper. For
example, a demo can be provided for an accepted paper, or a poster can
be used to present work that was insufficiently mature for the
research track.

At least one of the Poster/Demo authors must be a registered
participant at the conference, and attend the Poster/Demo Session to
present the work. The abstracts for all accepted posters and demos
will be given to all conference attendees and published on the
conference web site. They will not be included in the formal

Poster and demo abstracts must be formatted in the style of the
Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS). For complete details, see Springerís Author Instructions.
Abstracts must be submitted in PDF format. Abstracts will not be
accepted in any other format. Abstracts that exceed the page limit
will be rejected without review. Please submit papers at the ISWC 2008
submission page.

Copyright forms will be required for all accepted papers. Details will
be sent with notifications of acceptance.
