  PhD SYMPOSIUM - CALL FOR PAPERS                      *
*					Collocated with          					  *
*  The 6th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2009)  *
*                 Crete, Greece, 1st of  June 2009                                     *

The ESWC2009 PhD Symposium will continue the successful
series of PhD symposia collocated with the main Semantic Web
conferences. The goal of the symposium is to provide a unique
opportunity for PhD students to open up their work in front of other
academics than their supervisors. Students will be able to present
their work and get feedback on their topic and approach from leading
scientists in the field and from fellow students. Additionally, the forum
will provide an opportunity to meet other students, to learn about their
work and last, but not least, to discuss PhD related issues.

We welcome submissions on all major topics related to Semantic Web
research, including, but not limited to those of relevance for ESWC2009.
Submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the scientific
advisory board. Selected papers will be published in the conference
proceedings and will be presented in front of other students and senior
researchers (either in a regular presentation session or in a poster session).
Each accepted contribution will be assigned to a scientific advisor who will
provide extended feedback on the presented research. We encourage
submissions from all PhD students, and especially those in their first
years of PhD.

Submission guidelines

Submissions should be structured around the following topics which are
the key methodological components required for a sound research narrative:

* Problem: describe the core problem of the PhD and motivate its relevance
		      for the Semantic Web area;
* State of the art: describe relevant related work and point out areas that need
                    to be improved;
* Proposed Approach: present the approach taken and motivate how this is
                   novel with respect to existing work;
* Methodology: sketch the methodology that is (or will be) adopted and, in
		    particular, the approach to be taken for evaluating the results of the work;
* Results: describe the current status of the work and any results that have
                  been reached so far;
* Conclusions and future work: conclude and specify the major items of future work.

Note that students which have a paper accepted in the main research track on a
certain topic can still submit a paper in which they describe the overall idea and
status of their PhD following the template above. Submissions should be no longer
than 5 pages and must be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format
for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Papers must be in PDF (Adobe's
Portable Document Format) format and must be submitted electronically through the
conference submission site. Papers will not be accepted in any other format. We will
not accept research papers that, at the time of submission, are under review for or
have already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference.
