Call for Posters

The Poster Session at ISWC2004 is an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, ongoing research projects, speculative or innovative work-in-progress. Posters 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, completed work, or work in progress are all welcome.

Posters are very appropriate for material which is not yet ready for a full paper submission.

Authors submit a two page summary or extended abstracts for evaluation. This MUST clearly demonstrate a 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.

Authors of full papers may submit poster summaries that emphasize "where next" with the research presented in the full paper. Such submissions can be made before or after notification concerning the related full paper, and are welcome whether the full paper is accepted or rejected. Rejected full papers will not automatically be considered for the poster track; a separate poster submission must be made.

A detailed list of suggested topics can be found both in the call for papers, and in the industrial track call.

At least one of the poster authors must be present at the conference, and attend the poster session. Posters are intended to convey a scientific result or work-in-progress and are not intended as advertisements for software packages.

The summaries of accepted posters will be given to all conference attendees and published on the conference web site. They will not be included in the proceedings.

Submission Format Details

Submissions must consist of a camera-ready summary or extended abstract of the work to be described in the poster, not to exceed two (2) A4 pages. The format is based on the IJCAI two-column format, and the following files are provided.

For Latex and/or Unix users:

For Word and/or Windows users:

Users of other software can follow either set of instructions. If you have difficulty producing A4, then the instructions for Word are more detailed, and may be helpful.

The requirement for A4 (and not US Letter) is to enable the printing of the poster abstracts in Japan, without too much difficulty.
