Jump to: navigation, search

ISWC 2009, the Eighth International Semantic Web Conference, will be held on October 25-29 2009 at the Westfields Conference Center near Washington DC. Co-located workshops at previous ISWC conferences have become an important meeting point for researchers to discuss and exchange ideas concerning focused Semantic Web topics. ISWC 2009 plans to continue with this tradition and invites proposals for the Workshop Track.


General Information

  • Co-located workshops must be on topics that are of interest to ISWC attendees.
  • Workshop duration can be half a day or a full day.
  • We strongly advise having more than one organizer, preferably from different institutions, bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic.
  • Workshops are intended to be genuine interactive events. We welcome workshops with creative structures and organizations that attract various types of contributions and ensure rich interactions.
  • The decision on acceptance/rejection of workshop proposals will be made on the basis of the overall quality of the proposal as well as how it fits in with the conference.
  • The organizers of successful workshops will be responsible for their own reviewing process, for publicity (e.g., website), and for publishing electronic proceedings on the CEUR-WS website. They will be required to closely cooperate with the Workshops Chairs and the ISWC 2009 local organizers to finalize all details mentioned above.
  • Accepted workshops will receive one free registration to the main conference.
  • Workshop attendees must pay the ISWC 2009 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference registration fee.


Workshop proposals should be no more than 3 pages in length, should be in text or PDF format and should contain the following information:

  • A title.
  • A 200 words abstract.
  • A brief discussion of why the topic is of particular interest at this time.
  • A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of interest, the workshop audience, as well as the expected number of participants.
  • A brief description of the proposed workshop format, discussing the mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels, and general discussion.
  • A list of (potential) members of the program committee (at least 50% have to be known and confirmed at the time of the proposal).
  • An indication of whether the workshop should be considered for a half-day or full-day meeting.
  • A description of past versions of the workshop, including URLs as well as submission and acceptance counts.
