Call for EU Project Networking

The EU project networking track of ESWC2016 will provide an opportunity for

* Knowledge sharing among EU projects
* Presentation and discussion of project results with ESWC participants
* Discussion with other researchers about H2020 opportunities


The project networking track is intended to provide EU projects with the ability to connect with each other and engage in discussions about their respective research and development, establish opportunities for knowledge and technology sharing, and identify complementary activities and goals which can form the basis for future collaborations, research proposals, researcher exchange or joint participation at events or in initiatives.


Projects willing to participate at the session must submit a 2-page extended abstract (PDF, Springer LNCS style). The abstract should introduce the EU funded R&D project, briefly describe its R&D activities and goals, outline what the project would show / demonstrate in the session and specify what the project expects to gain from networking with other projects (what it offers, what it is looking for).

Submissions will be evaluated by a separate Program Committee. There will be a limited number of places for EU projects in the networking space. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to ESWC2016, tangible innovation and uniqueness in the R&D activities and a clear goal to benefit from networking with other projects.

Submission will be through the Easychair system at:​
