Call for Tutorial Proposals
ESWC 2016 invites tutorials that address the interests of its varied
audience: people new to the Semantic Web, Semantic Web researchers and
practitioners that wish to learn new technologies, users of Semantic Web
technologies, and representatives of government and funding agencies as
well as potential private investors in Semantic Web technologies. We
welcome submissions of tutorial proposals on all major topics related to
We especially solicit proposals for tutorials of the following types:
Tutorials with a coherent theme providing an introduction to new
semantic technologies, methods, techniques, and trends (e.g. reasoning,
Linked Open Data, ontology-based data access, ontology design
principles, provenance and trust, etc.).
Tutorials describing the application of semantic technologies in
specific domains (e.g., life-sciences, e-government, e-commerce,
cultural heritage, educations, mobile, music, etc.).
Tutorials presenting techniques from other fields that are of relevance
for Semantic Web research, including social sciences, digital
humanities, biomedical research, HCI, Information Retrieval, database,
NLP, Internet of Things, data visualization, etc.
Tutorials may focus on theoretical topics, however, we encourage
organizers to incorporate hands-on sessions where appropriate. The
tutorial should reach a good balance between the topic coverage and its
relevance to the community.
Tutorials can be half a day or a full day.
We advise having up to two presenters for half day tutorials and up to
four presenters for full day ones, preferably from different
institutions, bringing different perspectives to the tutorial topic.
