Call for Posters and Demos


The ISWC 2011 Posters and Demonstrations Track complements the Research Paper track of the conference and offers an opportunity for presenting late-breaking research results, ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. The informal setting of the Posters and Demonstrations Track encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented 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 and the Semantic Web In Use Track. Technical posters, reports on Semantic Web software systems, descriptions of completed work, and work in progress are all welcome. Demonstrations are intended to showcase innovative Semantic Web related implementations and technologies. All submissions are intended to convey a scientific result or work in progress and should not be advertisements for commercial software packages.

Authors of full papers accepted for the Research and In Use tracks are explicitly invited to submit a poster or a demonstration. The submission should be formated 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 space reasons, b) a demonstration of a supporting prototype implementation.

Submission Information

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. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the Semantic Web, originality, potential significance, topicality and clarity. 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 showed).

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.All abstracts have to be submitted electronically through the conference submission system.

At least one of the authors must be a registered participant at the conference, and present the work at the Poster/Demo Session. 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.

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 submissions.
