Call for Workshop Proposals
http://iswc2012.semanticweb.org/call-workshop-proposals
In conjunction with the
                  11th International Semantic Web Conference
		 http://iswc2012.semanticweb.org/
                  Boston - USA
                  November 11-15, 2012
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) is the primary conference on the use of semantic 
technologies on the web and linked data, constantly attracting a high number of high quality 
submissions participants from academia and industry. It brings together researchers from different 
areas of computer science, like artificial intelligence, databases, natural language process, 
information retrieval and others that aim at the development and use of novel technologies for 
accessing, interpreting and using information on the web in a more effective way. Besides the main 
technical programme, ISWC will host a number of workshops on topics related to the general theme of 
the conference. The role of the workshops is to provide a context for an intensive scientific 
exchange among researchers interested in a particular topic. The workshops should provide the 
opportunity to present and discuss ongoing work and new ideas in subfield of the Semantic Web/Linked 
Data research.
Topics of Interest

In order to meet these goals, workshops should address topics that satisfy the following criteria:

     - the topic falls in the general scope of ISWC 2012
     - there is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application
     - there is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic

In particular, we encourage the submission of workshop proposals on:

     - fundamental problems of the Semantic Web/Linked Data such as ontology mining, heterogeneity, 
scalability and distribution, uncertainty
     - applications of Semantic Web Technologies in specific domains and trends
     - important enabling technologies and their adaptation to the needs of the Semantic Web
     - aspects of Semantic Web Research that have been neglected so far techniques from other 
research fields that are of relevance for Semantic Web research (e.g., machine learning, NLP)


Submission Guidelines
----------------------------
Workshop proposals should be submitted via EasyChair 
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iswc2012ws as a single PDF file of no more than 5 pages 
and should contain the following information:

     - Title.
     - Abstract (200 words)
     - Motivation on why the topic is of particular interest at this time.
     - Workshop format, discussing the mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, 
panels, and general discussion.
     - Intended audience and expected number of participants.
     - List of (potential) members of the program committee (at least 50\% have to be confirmed at 
the time of the proposal).
     - Indication of whether the workshop should be considered for a half-day or full-day.
     - Past versions of the workshop, including URLs as well as submission and acceptance counts.
     - Data of the presenters (name, affiliation, email address, homepage) and short description of 
their expertise, experiences in teaching and in tutorial presentation.

Additionally
------------------------
     - we strongly advise having more than one organizer, preferably from different institutions, 
bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic.
     - we welcome workshops with creative structures and organizations that attract various types of 
contributions and ensure rich interactions.

Proposers of accepted workshops have to prepare a workshop webpage containing the call for papers 
and detailed information about the workshop organization and timelines. The workshop organizers will 
be responsible for their own reviewing process, for publicity, and for publishing electronic 
proceedings (e.g., on the CEUR-WS website). They will be required to closely cooperate with the 
Workshops Chairs and the ISWC 2012 local organizers to finalize all details mentioned here.
