==== Second Call for Demos ====

11th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) 2014
Dates: May 25 - 29, 2014
Venue: Anissaras, Crete, Greece
Hashtag: #eswc2014
Feed: @eswc_conf
General Chair: Valentina Presutti (STLab, ISTC-CNR, IT)

- Eva Blomqvist (Department of Computer and Information Science,
  Linkoping University, SE)

The demonstrations track of the ESWC 2014 complements the overall
program of the conference with demonstrations of real-world,
applied-and-tested advances of semantic technologies. In addition to
papers and posters presenting latest theoretical achievements, the ESWC
2014 is seeking demonstrations of novel applications of semantics in
various sectors, including: eGovernment, eEnvironment, eMobility and
smart cities, eHealth, Life Sciences, Sensor networks and RDF Stream
Processing, Linked Science, Media and entertainment, Telecommunications,
Cultural heritage, Financial services, Energy and utilities,
Manufacturing, Digital libraries, Cloud applications, Personal
Information Management, Decision support, Emergency and crisis
management etc.

The demonstrations track is an opportunity for researchers and
practitioners to present their innovative prototypes, practical
developments, on-going projects, lessons learned and late-breaking
results, relevant for the topics of interest of the main conference and
the research and poster tracks.

Submissions to the demonstrations track should make clear what will be
demonstrated, and in particular point out what makes the demonstration a
novel showcase. A video of the demo should be provided if a link to the
demonstrator is not available. Submission should also specify:

* What is the research background and application context of the
  demonstration, and what makes this a novel showcase for semantic
* What is the key technology used, and how does the demonstrated system,
  application or infrastructure relate to pre-existing work.
* What exactly will be demonstrated? What exactly will a visitor of the
  demonstration learn?

* Submission Guidelines *

Submissions to the demonstrations track must be in the form of a textual
description of the demonstration to be given at the conference (which
may include screenshots and must include either a link to the online
demo or a video presenting it). The submissions must be at most 5 pages
long including reference list (Springer LNCS style) and submitted as
PDF. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the
Semantic Web area, originality, potential significance, topicality and
clarity. Papers that exceed the given page length or do not follow the
LNCS guidelines will be rejected without a review.

Submissions should be uploaded using the Easychair system:

* Important Dates *

Submission Deadline: March 16, 2014
Notification of Acceptance: April 10, 2014
Camera-Ready Paper: April 25, 2014

* Important Notice *

Demonstrator papers will appear in supplementary post-conference
proceedings to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science series.

Participants with an accepted demo paper must register for the
conference and present their system during the Demo Session. A space for
demonstration will be allocated for each participant. Participants
should use their own laptop for the demos. The organizers should be
contacted well in advance of the conference in case of any special
