ESWC 2008: 2nd Call for Workshop Proposals

2nd Call for Workshop Proposals

5th European Semantic Web Conference
01 - 05 June 2008 Tenerife, Spain

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 a number of workshops
on topics related to the general theme of the conference. The role of the
workshops is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange
amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and 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.

In order to meet these goals, workshop should address topics that satisfy
the following

- the topic falls in the general scope of the ESWC conference (compare
- there is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application
- there is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic

In particular, we encourage the submission of workshop proposals on

- fundamental problems of the semantic web such as heterogeneity,
scalability and distribution
- applications of semantic web technologies in specific domains
- important enabling technologies and their adaptation to the needs of the
semantic web
- aspects of semantic web research that have been neglected so far

Workshop proposals should be sent to the workshop chair
before December 2007 as a single PDF file of no more than 5 pages and should
contain the following information

- name, address and experience of the workshop organizers
- the proposed topic and its role in the semantic web
- a clear explanation of the scope of the workshop
- a description of the community addressed, information about it size and
related activities
- if possible a tentative list of PC members

Proposers of accepted workshops have to prepare a workshop webpage
containing a call for papers and detailed information about the workshop
organization and timelines by mid January. Other relevant dates are the
