For your information, here is the earlier 'Call' which is now past.
The ISWC2005 Program Committee invites proposals for the
Workshop Program of ISWC2005, the Fourth International Semantic Web Conference, to be
held November 6-10, 2005, in Galway, Ireland. Workshops will be held
on Monday, November 7, 2005.
The purpose of the workshops is to provide an informal setting for workshop
participants to discuss technical issues, to exchange research ideas,
and to develop a community in the quickly emerging field of the Semantic
Web. Workshop proposals should address current issues related to the
Semantic Web that will benefit from small-group information exchange
and discussion. Workshops are intended to be genuine interactive events
and not mini-conferences. We expect to have a wide range of workshops,
including those that:
focus onfundamental research issues
bring together researchers from
support the interaction of research and industry for the deployment
of Semantic Web applications.
Workshops can vary in length from a half day to
a full day. We strongly
advise having more than one organizer, bringing different perspectives
to the workshop topic. Workshop attendees must pay the ISWC2005 workshop
registration fee, as well as the conference registration fee.
submit an informal letter expressing your
intent to propose a workshop and containing the workshop
title, topics, and a list of organizers as early as possible, but
no later than March 4th,
2005. This letter
is optional but we kindly request the workshop organizers to submit
it. Workshop proposals are due on March 18th, 2005.
