ISWC 2005 Logo Industry Day - The Information Juggernaut


Call for Submissions: Posters/Demos

Call for Posters and Demos

ISWC 2005 will hold combined poster and demo sessions. In principle, posters will be backed up with demos, and vice versa.

The Poster/Demo Session is an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. Posters and demos are intended to provide authors and participants with the ability to connect with each other and to engage in discussions about the work. 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.


Authors must submit a two-page paper with a short abstract for evaluation. The paper must clearly demonstrate relevance to the Semantic Web. Submissions will be evaluated for acceptability by the reviewers. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the Semantic Web, originality, potential significance, topicality and clarity. If a poster will be accompanied by a live software demonstration, authors are requested to submit an additional one-page explanation of the demo, which will not be included in the Poster/Demo notes. Submit the demo explanation as the third page of your two-page paper.

Full papers will not automatically be considered for the Demo/Poster track; a separate poster submission must be made. "Authors submitting a full paper to another track in ISWC 2005, may also submit the same work for consideration in the Demo/Poster track, either before or after result notification for the full paper.

For example, a demo can be provided for an accepted paper, or a poster can be used to present work that was insufficiently mature for the research track.

Other Information

A detailed list of suggested topics can be found in the calls for papers both for the research track and for the industrial track. Posters and demos are intended to convey a scientific result or work in progress and are not intended as advertisements for software packages.

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

The abstracts for all accepted posters and demos will be given to all conference attendees and published on the conference Web site. They will not be included in the formal proceedings.

Posters and demos must be submitted in accordance with the IJCAI format guidelines.
IJCAI have kindly allowed us to make those available here for you to download.
