     Call for Demos at The International Semantic Web Conference
              Hiroshima, Japan, November 7-11, 2004

              SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 31st, 2004

The ISWC 2004 Program Committee invites proposals for the
Demonstrations Program. This program is intended to showcase
innovative Semantic Web related implementations and technologies.
Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation,
relevance, scientific contribution, reusability, and presentation,
by an international committee. Selected demos will be published as
a demonstration paper with the Journal of Web Semantics.
Commercial sales and marketing activities are not appropriate in
the Demonstration program - please look at the industrial
exhibition for these proposals. The demo program is organized in
cooperation with the Semantic Web Challenge (see
http://challenge.semanticweb.org). While the challenge is focused
on a particular theme, the demo session is looking for a wider
range of contributions. Please submit only to the challenge or to
the demo program.

We would like to encourage the submission of proposals for
demonstrations of software related to any areas of the Semantic
Web. Areas of interest related to Semantic Web technology include,
