Call For Posters and Demos

The posters and demos track of ESWC provides a forum for late-breaking results, on-going research projects, and innovative ideas, as well as prototypes of semantic technologies and their applications in various domains. Submissions to the posters and demos track may cover all areas of Semantic Web research and applications, such as Linked Data and Knowledge Graphs, Ontologies, Reasoning, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Data Quality and Data Integration, and Semantic Data Management, as well as applications from Life Sciences, eGovernment, Business, Manufacturing, eScience, Emergency and Crisis Management, etc. Posters and demos will be presented in a separate, interactive session, providing the opportunity for engaging in discussions and direct exchange.

Prize and minute madness

Accepted posters and demos will be included into the “minute madness” pitch introducing the poster and demo session during the conference. They will also be enrolled into the competition for the best poster and demo award of ESWC 2017. More information about the “minute madness” material and program will be provided to the authors of accepted submissions.

Submission Guidelines

Authors must submit a short paper (Springer LNCS style, Poster submissions are at most four pages long, demo submissions are at most five pages long.

The submissions must clearly demonstrate relevance to the Semantic Web and the topics of interest of ESWC 2017. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the Semantic Web, originality, potential significance, topicality, and clarity. Papers that exceed the given page length or do not follow the LNCS guidelines will be rejected without review. Furthermore, double submissions to other any conferences, workshops, or tracks of ESWC will be rejected. Posters and demonstrations accompanying an accepted research or in-use/industrial track paper must be marked as such and provide an explanation of the additional value of the P&D submission. Submissions must be uploaded on Easychair selecting the ESWC 2017 Posters and Demos Track at
