==== Call for Workshops ====

The organizers of the 11th ESWC 2014 cordially invite you to submit a
workshop proposal. ESWC is a major venue for discussing the latest
scientific results and innovations in the field of semantic technologies
on the Web and Linked Data, attracting a high number of high quality
submissions and participants from academia and industry alike.

Co-located workshops at ESWC conferences are distinguished meeting
points for discussing ongoing work and latest ideas related to semantic
technologies and the Semantic Web. Of particular interest are workshop
proposals with an interdisciplinary standpoint, proposals focusing on a
specific technology of general interest, or gathering a
sub-community. We encourage the submission of workshop proposals on:
Fundamental problems of the Semantic Web / Linked Data such as ontology
mining, heterogeneity, scalability and distribution, uncertainty, etc.
Applications of Semantic Web technologies in specific domains,
Important enabling technologies and their adaptation to the needs of the
Semantic Web, and
Aspects of Semantic Web research that have been neglected so far, 
Techniques from other research fields that are of relevance for Semantic
Web research (e.g., machine learning, NLP, data mining)

General Information and Criteria 
Each proposal will be reviewed by the members of the workshop programme
committee, and ranked based on the overall quality of the proposal and
the workshop's fit to the conference as detailed below. Their
recommendation will determine the final decision on the
acceptance/rejection of each proposal, which is to be taken by the
workshop and tutorial chairs as well as by the local and the general
chair of ESWC 2014.
The criteria for judging the quality of workshop proposals are as
Co-located workshops cover topics falling in the general scope of the
ESWC conference.
Workshops are intended to be genuine interactive events and not
We welcome workshops with creative structures and organizations that
attract various types of contributions and ensure rich interactions.
Workshops should have a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or
There is potentially a significant community interested in the
workshop's topic.
Workshop duration can be half a day or a full day.
We strongly advise having more than one organizer and no more than four,
preferably from different institutions, bringing different perspectives
to the workshop topic.
In case overlapping workshops are proposed, the workshop chair may
contact the organisers to discuss the possibility of merging
workshops. Please note that the duration of a workshop might need to be
adjusted based on the overall number of submissions received. Further,
workshops that receive less than 5 submissions or have less than 10
people registered at the early registration deadline might be canceled.
The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own
reviewing process, publicity (e.g., website, timelines and call for
papers), and proceedings production. They will be required to closely
cooperate with the Workshop Chair and the ESWC 2014 local organizers to
finalize all organizational details. Workshop attendees must pay the
ESWC 2014 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference
registration fee.

Organizers of workshops and tutorials will get a free registration for
workshops and tutorials at the pre-conference days, i.e. they will only
have to pay the main conference fee.
