Call for Sponsors

ISWC2004 offers you the opportunity to be a corporate sponsor of the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2004), which will be held in Hiroshima, Japan, 7-11 November, 2004 (See for conference details). This meeting builds on the success of the Semantic Web Working Symposium (SWWS) held at Stanford University during the summer of 2001, the 1st International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2002) held in Sardinia, Italy during the summer of 2002, and the 2nd International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2003) held in Sanibel Island, Florida, USA, 20-23 October, 2003. These conferences were very successful and ISWC2003 attracted 470 attendees from university, government, and industry. The meeting's sponsors included innovative companies both small and large and several US and EC government organizations.

The ISWC conference is a major meeting for bringing researchers and practitioners together, and for helping both to describe critical paths for web development and to help in transferring this emerging technology to industrial use. The Semantic Web area is an important and dynamic sub-field of web R&D, which attracts a growing industrial community as well as from the World Wide Web consortium and significant interest and funding from both the US and EU governments. This increasing interest presents an opportunity for your organization to be associated with this important trend in the web of the future.

The Semantic Web is already producing a new Web that provides a machine understandable meaning to Web pages. By accessing directly the meaning of pages, computers can harvest information, saving us the time and effort to read pages and pages to find the information we seek. To this extent the Semantic Web is becoming a fertile environment for Data Mining and Information Retrieval across the web and across heterogeneous Databases. Furthermore, the growing community of Web Services is already taking advantage of the emergence of the Semantic Web to reduce the automatic interoperability barrier.

To highlight the growing range of industrial applications of the Semantic Web, in ISWC2004 we will organize an industrial track and exhibition that will provide opportunities to showcase new products and the contribution from industry side. By exhibition we mean not a conventional one which is held throughout of the conference days in a booth but a special session for demos of industrial products programmed like the other academic presentations. Demo session is organized mainly for academic presentations which contrast with Exhibition session which is for presentations of industrial products.

We have created several sponsorship levels to make it easier for small companies to have an opportunity to get involved or for larger companies to make their presence felt. The sponsorship levels are:

  1. If you are only interested in the exhibition, you need to pay 1000$US for it.
  2. Silver: 120,000JPY, Gold: 300,000JPY, Platinum: 600,000JPY for Japanese companies.

In addition, we have opportunities for higher sponsorship levels including the ability to sponsor conference or affiliated events.

Please contact one of the sponsorship chairs below for more information. Thank you for your support!
