The conference will include contributed papers, system presentations, project posters and tutorials. There are two categories of paper submissions:
- Research papers. Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in Springer's
LNCS format. They should describe original research (practical or theoretical), or
provide a survey/overview of an area of research that is contributing to the
realisation of the Semantic Web. Note that full length (15 pages)
system/application papers are welcome in this category.
- Industrial application papers. Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in
Springer's LNCS format. They should describe an implemented tool or service
that either contributes to the realisation of the Semantic Web or is using
Semantic Web technology in a “real world” setting.
- All European Semantic Web projects, as well as other research projects in the Semantic Web area world-wide, are invited to present a poster at the ESWS2004. Each project presenting a poster is requested to submit a twopage
- The conference also invites proposals to demonstrate novel Semantic Web software. This program is intended to showcase state-of-the-art Semantic Web implementations. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation, relevance, scientific contribution, presentation, and user friendliness, as well as potential logistical constraints. This program is primarily to encourage the early exhibition of research prototypes, but interesting mature systems are also eligible (commercial sales and marketing activities are not appropriate in the Demonstration program). We encourage the submission of proposals for demonstrations of software related to any areas of the Semantic Web. Format for Submission: Demo proposals consist of the following parts, which should all be sent to the Demo Chair. - An abstract of the technical content to be demonstrated, not to exceed two pages, including title, authors, full contact information, references and acknowledgements. - The local organizer will provide, space, power, and a wireless internet connection (demonstrators should bring their own wireless network cards in addition to all other equipment required for the demo). The notification of acceptance will be on February 18, 2004.
