Call for Posters

The Poster Track of ESWC 2016 will provide an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, on-going research projects, and 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.

We invite submissions relevant to the area of the semantics in various sectors, including:  Urban Life and Mobility, eHealth, eGovernment, eEnvironment, 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 covering also inter-sectorial aspects of Cognitive Computing, Data Semantics, and Natural Language Processing.

Papers submitted to the research track will NOT automatically be considered for the poster track. A separate poster submission must be made. For example, a poster can be used to present work that was insufficiently mature for the research track.

Prize and minute madness

Accepted posters will be included into the “minute madness” pitch introducing the poster and demo session during the conference. They will also be enrolled into the competition for the best poster of ESWC 2016. More information about the “minute madness” material and program will be provided to the authors of accepted submissions.
