CF Workshop Proposals: European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2009)

Call for Workshop Proposals

The 6th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2009)
31 May - 4 June 2009
Crete, Greece

The ESWC is the leading European Conference on Theory, Practice and Applications of Semantic Web Technologies, constantly attracting a high number of high quality submissions participants from academia and industry.

Besides the main technical programme, ESWC will host workshops on topics related to the Conference theme. Workshops promote scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and act as a meeting point for the community. The workshops should provide the opportunity to present and discuss ongoing work and new ideas in subfield of Semantic Web research.

Of particular interest are workshop proposals with an interdisciplinary standpoint, proposals focusing on a specific technology of general interest, or gathering a sub-community.

General Information and criteria

* Co-located workshops cover topics falling in the general scope of the ESWC conference (refer to
* They are clearly focused.

* Workshop duration can be half a day or a full day.
* We advise having more than one organizer and no more than four, preferably from different institutions, bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic.
* Workshops are intended to be genuine interactive events and not mini-conferences. We welcome workshops with creative structures and organizations that attract various types of contributions and ensure rich interactions.


* The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own paper selection process, publicity (i.e., website and call for paper), program design and proceedings production. They will be required to closely cooperate with the Workshops Chairs and the ESWC 2009 local organizers to finalize all organizational details.
* The ESWC organizers will be reponsible for registration management, proceeding distribution, publishing workshop information on the ESWC web site, and room reservation.
