The European Semantic Technologies Conference (ESTC) is the leading European forum to bring together those who use Semantic Technologies in their business, those who implement Semantic Solutions and those who build semantically-enabled products.

With semantic technology becoming increasingly mature and commercially deployed, the need for a European industrial event (to complement existing academic events) is evident.

For the first ESTC, we are seeking contributions of:

 Businesses and public organizations describing their practical experience (case studies) in using Semantic Technologies (the problem, the solution, initial expectations, the project, results, cost/benefit)
 Vendor reports on semantically-enabled products and solutions
 Analyst reports on the current market situation for Semantic Technologies

In particular, we invite the submission of case studies, reports and practical experience papers in the following subject areas:

 Experience of Business Deployments of Semantic Web technologies
  - value proposition and business case,
  - return on investment,
  - ease of adoption of technologies,
  - gaining end-user acceptance,
  - problems encountered in deploying semantic technology,
  - limits (and limitations) of semantic technology today,
  - dos and donts of applying semantic technology,
  - recognising the need  when to apply semantic technology,
  - integration with legacy systems, and so on;

 Semantic Technology market in Europe and globally;
 Semantic Technology for Data and Information Integration;
 Business Rules and Vocabularies;
 Management of content and unstructured data in legacy systems;
 Semantic Technology for Knowledge Management;
 Business Process Management;
 Ontology Engineering: knowledge acquisition, ontology creation and management (e.g. evolution, evaluation);
 Semantic Web for e-Business, e-Health, e-Government, Multimedia, Bio-Pharmacy;
 Semantic Interoperability in Data and Services for the Enterprise;
 Semantic Web Services Tools and Applications;
 Semantic Mining for Business Intelligence;
