The ESWC is the leading European conference on theory, practice and applications of Semantic Web technologies, attracting an increasing number of participants from various communities and sectors.
The demonstrations track of the ESWC2009 complements the overall program of the conference with demonstrations of real-world, proven-and-tested advances of semantic technologies. In addition to papers and posters presenting latest theoretical achievements the ESWC2009 is seeking demonstrations of novel applications of semantics in various sectors, as well as innovative enabling technologies and deployment infrastructures relevant for the topics of interest t the main conference and the research and poster tracks.
Deadline extended to 23rd of January!
Submissions to the demonstrations track must be in form of a textual description of the demonstration to be given at the conference. The submissions must be maximally 5 pages long and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style. They should be submitted as PDF using the conference submission system.

Accepted submissions to the demonstrations track will be published as part of the ESWC2009 proceedings. As such, the quality assurance will be strict, and the demonstrations will be subject to review by a separate Program Committee. Proposed demonstrations must show relevance, novelty and significance to the topics of the conference. The associated textual descriptions should contain sections answering the following questions, as appropriate:
What is the research background and application context of the demonstration?
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?
