2nd CFP - [Workshop Proposals] [ISWC2008] [7th International Semantic Web Conference]



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

Co-located workshops at previous ISWC conferences have become an
important meeting point for researchers willing to discuss and
exchange ideas on topics related to the Semantic Web. ISWC 2008
plans to continue with this tradition and therefore invites proposals
for the Workshop Program of ISWC 2008. Workshops will be held
on 26-27 October.

General Information
* Co-located workshops must be on topics that are of interest to
  ISWC attendees.
* Workshop duration can be half a day or a full day (October 26th
  and 27th only).

* We strongly advise having more than one organizer, preferably
  from different institutions, bringing different perspectives to the
  workshop topic.

* Workshops are intended to be genuine interactive events and not
  mini-conferences. We welcome workshops with creative structures and
  organizations that attract various types of contributions and
  ensure rich interactions.

* The decision on acceptance/rejection of workshop proposals will
  be made on the basis of overall quality of the proposal as well as
  how it fits in with the conference.

* The organizers of successful workshops will be responsible for
  their own reviewing process, publicity (e.g., website), and
  proceedings. They will be required to closely cooperate with the
  Workshops Chairs and the ISWC 2008 local organizers to finalize all
  details mentioned above.

* Workshop attendees must pay the ISWC 2008 workshop registration
  fee, as well as the conference registration fee.
