15th International Semantic Web Conference
October 17-21, 2016
Call for Posters and Demos
The ISWC 2016 Posters and Demonstrations complement the paper tracks of
the conference and offer an opportunity for presenting late-breaking
research results, on-going research projects, and speculative or
innovative work in progress. The informal setting of the Posters and
Demonstrations encourages presenters and participants to engage in
discussions about the work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs
for the future work of the presenters, while offering participants an
effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends
and to network with other researchers.
We invite submissions relevant to the area of the Semantic Web and which
address, but are not limited to, the topics of the Research Track; the
Application Track; and the Resource Track. Technical posters, reports on
Semantic Web software systems (free or commercial), descriptions of
completed work, and work in progress are all welcome. Demonstrations are
intended to showcase innovative Semantic Web related implementations and
technologies, both in academia and in industry.
We explicitly welcome entries from the industry. However, submissions
for posters and demos should go beyond pure advertisements of commercial
software packages and convey a minimal scientific contribution.
Authors of full papers accepted for the Research Track; the Application
Track; and the Resource Track are explicitly invited to submit a
demonstration. The submission should be formatted as the other posters
and demonstrations but must cite the accepted full paper and needs to
include an explanation of its added value with respect to the conference
paper. The added value could include: a) extended results and
experiments not presented in the conference paper for reasons of space,
or b) a demonstration of a supporting prototype implementation.
Authors must submit a four-page extended abstract for evaluation. All
submissions will undergo a common review process, including those
related to already accepted full papers. For demonstrations, authors are
strongly encouraged to include in their submission a link to where the
demo (live or recorded video) can be found. They should also make clear
what exactly will be demonstrated to the participants (e.g., what
datasets will be used, which functionalities will be shown).
All submissions must be made electronically via the EasyChair conference
Submissions must use the PDF file format and must adopt the style of the
Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS). Details are provided on Springer's Author Instructions page.
Submissions that exceed the page limit will be rejected without review.
For details on the HTML format, see the HTML submission guide.
At least one of the authors must be a registered participant at the
conference, and attend the Poster/Demo Session to present the work. The
abstracts of accepted posters and demonstrations will be given to all
conference attendees and published on the conference web site, but will
not be published by Springer in the printed conference proceedings. They
will, however, be compiled into a CEUR-WS Proceedings for easy Web
retrieval and archival.
Metadata for all successful submissions will be included in the
conference metadata corpus. Detailed information about metadata creation
will be provided with the acceptance notification of the successful
As in previous years, student-authors of accepted papers will be able to
apply for travel support to attend the conference.
All papers submitted to the Posters & Demos Track will be reviewed by at
least three program committee members. Decisions about acceptance will
be based on relevance to the Semantic Web, originality, potential
significance, relevance, and clarity. The purpose of the track is to
allow the presentation of preliminary results to the community, provided
that originality and significance of the contribution are ensured.
Authors submitting a demo are strongly encouraged to include in the
paper a pointer to the online demo or video of the application to be
presented. The absence of a pointer will affect the overall evaluation
of the paper.
