Call for Posters and Software Demos

European Semantic Web Conference ESWC 2005
Heraklion, Crete
May 29th - June 1st 2005


The ESWC 2005 Program Committee invites proposals for the
demonstrations and poster 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.

Areas of Interest

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, but
are not limited to:

* Social Software and Portals
* Semantic Desktop Systems and Tools
* P2P systems
* Annotation tools
* Novel query and browsing interfaces
* Data visualization
* Ontology development environments
* Ontology libraries and management systems
* Tools for merging, integrating or articulating ontologies
* Tools for merging, integrating or articulating instance data
* Reusable components and APIs for RDF, DAML+OIL, OWL, etc.
* Repositories and inference systems
* Applications
* Agent systems embedded in the Semantic Web
* Systems that identify and compose web services

Requested Contributions We are looking for contributions whose
nature make them less suited for submission to the official paper
track. We would like to emphasize this point and make clear that the
poster session is more than a second chance for a rejected paper.

In particular, we ask for contributions of the following kind:

* Late-breaking and Speculative Results: Significant and original
  ideas and promising approaches to resolve open problems in semantic
  web research that are in an early stage and have not been verified
  and tested sufficiently to meet the requirements of a scientific
  publication. Submissions in this area will be evaluated like a
  scientific paper but limited to the aspects of originality,
  relevance and significance.

* Systems and Infrastructure: Descriptions (preferably accompanied by
  demonstration) of new systems that use semantic web technology to
  solve important real world problems. We are also looking for
  software infrastructure supporting the development of systems that
  use semantic web technologies. Systems will be evaluated based on
  novelty and significance of the application as well as the use of
  semantic web technologies for solving the problem. Main criteria
  for contributions on infrastructure is successful use in existing
  applications as well as uniqueness of the provided services.

* Projects and Initiatives: Descriptions of the objectives and
  results of ongoing projects and initiatives. The aim is to 
  provide an overview of ongoing work in the area of the 
  semantic web. Contributions in this area will be evaluated 
  based on the importance and uniqueness of the objectives. 
  Further criteria for project descriptions are the significance 
  of results, descriptions of initiatives will also be evaluated 
  with respect to the expected impact on the community .

Submissions Format and Procedure

Submissions, not to exceed 2 pages, should be submitted in
electronic form (PDF --- preferred, Postscript, HTML or Word) to 
conference website. Details will be published on the web site soon. 
The abstract should describe the content of the poster or demo to be 
demonstrated as well as the architecture and the availability of the 
software (if any) and should also include including title, authors, 
full contact information, and references (limited to a small number 
of closely related publications).
