==== Call for Tutorials ====

ESWC 2014 invites tutorials that address the interests of its varied
audience: people new to the Semantic Web, Semantic Web researchers and
practitioners that wish to learn new technologies, users of Semantic Web
technologies, and representatives of government and funding agencies as
well as potential private investors in Semantic Web technologies. We
welcome submissions of tutorial proposals on all major topics related to
semantic technologies.

We especially solicit proposals for tutorials of the following types:

- Tutorials with a coherent theme providing an introduction to new
  semantic technologies and trends.
- Tutorials describing the application of semantic technologies in
  specific domains (e.g., life-sciences, e-government, e-commerce,
  cultural heritage, etc.).
- Tutorials presenting techniques from other research fields that are of
  relevance for Semantic Web research especially in relationship to the
  tracks of the conference (e.g., techniques from social science,
  database techniques, NLP techniques etc.).

Tutorials can be half a day or a full day.

We advise having more than one presenter and no more than three,
preferably from different institutions, bringing different perspectives
to the tutorial topic.

Tutorials may focus entirely on theoretical aspects; however, we
encourage organisers to incorporate hands-on sessions where
appropriate. The tutorials should reach a good balance between the topic
coverage and its relevance to the community.

Timeline for Tutorials
Proposals due: Nov 22, 2013 - 23:59 Hawaii Time
Notification of acceptance: Dec 6, 2013 - 23:59 Hawaii Time

Organizers of accepted tutorials are responsible for preparing and
maintaining a Web site that describes the tutorial and includes all
relevant information. Organizers are also responsible for submitting the
material for attendees (slide sets, additional teaching material,
software installation and usage guides for practical hands-on sessions,
etc.) to the Tutorial Chair. The ESWC 2014 Organizing Committee is
responsible for providing publicity for the tutorials as part of the
conference publicity activities, and on-site logistical support to the
organizers and attendees. Tutorial attendees must pay the ESWC 2014
workshop registration fee, as well as the conference registration fee.

General Information
Each tutorial will have one reduced registration fee (pre-conference
days registration will be free i.e. one of the chairs will only have to
pay the main conference fees).
In the interest of the overall quality of the conference, the Tutorial
Chair reserves the right to merge tutorials and/or adjust the scope
thereof in case a mimimum number of registrations is not reached by the
early registration deadline.

Submission details
Tutorial proposals should not exceed 5 pages, using an 11 pt font for
the body of the text of the proposal and should contain the following

- Abstract (200 words maximum, for inclusion on the ESWC 2014 website).

- Tutorial description: More specifically, it should specify the
  objectives of the tutorial and relevance to ESWC 2014, include enough
  details on the scope of the material to be covered and the depth to
  which it will be covered and specify the intended audience and any
  prerequisite knowledge. Appropriate references to the material to be
  covered by the tutorial must be included.

- Tutorial length. The tutorial can be full or half day (if the tutorial
  can be either length, please be sure to identify which material is
  included for each length).

- Specify other venues to which the tutorial or part thereof has or will

  differs from the other editions. Links to the slides of those tutorial
  editions should be included in the proposal.

  training and speaking experience (such as teaching and tutorial

Each proposal will be reviewed by the members of the tutorial programme
committee, and ranked based on the overall quality of the proposal and
the tutorial's fit to the conference. Their recommendation will
determine the final decision on the acceptance/rejection of each
