                             CALL FOR PAPERS

           The 8th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC),
                               IN-USE TRACK 
               May 29 - June 2, 2011, Heraklion, Greece 

The mission of the Extended Semantic Web Conference is to bring 
together researchers and practitioners dealing with different 
aspects of semantic technologies. ESWC 2011 builds on the 
success of the former European Semantic Web Conference series 
(http://www.eswc2010.org/), and seeks to extend its focus by 
collaborating with other communities and research areas, 
in which Web semantics play an important role, within and 
outside ICT.  

Bringing the research results down to exploitation 
by the final users as well as demonstrating the beneficial 
use of these results in real world settings is a major challenge. 
Semantic technologies are among transversal enabling technologies, 
and, hence, can be applied in various domains, ranging from 
eGovernment to manufacturing. The Semantic Web in Use track 
is particularly devoted to showcase implemented applications, 
learned best practices as well as assessments and evaluations 
of semantic technologies in real world settings. Submissions 
to this track should substantially contribute to the knowledge 
transfer from research labs into mainstream adoption.  
Special interest for this year's ESWC in Use track includes 
linking open (e.g., government) data, sentiment analysis 
(e.g., over social networks and blogs) and scalable show cases 
(e.g., scenarios with large volumes of data and/or near real-time 
response requirements).

In this track we invite original submissions conforming to generally 
accepted practices for scientific papers covering (but not limited to) 
one or more of the following topics:
   - Description of the concrete problems in specific application domains, 
     for which the semantic technologies can provide a solution. 
   - Description of an implemented application of the semantic 
     technologies in a specific domain. 
   - Assessment of the pros and cons of using the semantic technologies 
     to solve a particular business problem or other practical problems 
     in a specific domain. 
   - Comparison with alternative or competing approaches using 
     conventional or competing technologies. 
   - Assessment of the costs and benefits of the application of 
     the semantic technologies, e.g., time spent on implementation 
     and deployment, efforts involved, final user acceptance, 
     returns on investment. 
   - Evidence of deployment of the application, and assessment/evaluation 
     of usage/uptake.
   - Application of the semantic technologies to problems where 
     their scalability to large amounts of data and/or short response 
     times are demonstrated.
   - Domains of interest include, but are not limited to: 
     enterprise applications, eGovernment, eParticipation, eEnvironment, 
     eMobility and Smart cities, eHealth, eInclusion, life sciences, 
     media and entertainment, telecommunications, cultural heritage, 
     financial services, energy and utilities, manufacturing.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in Springer's 
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper submission and reviewing 
will be electronic. Papers must not exceed fifteen (15) pages in length 
and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS authors: 

Papers must be submitted as PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) 
and will not be accepted in any other format. Papers that exceed 15 pages 
or do not follow the LNCS guidelines risk being rejected automatically 
without a review. The contributions to the in-Use track hould be submitted 
through the track submission site at: 


     Abstract submission:    Dec. 6, 2010 (compulsory)
     Full paper submission:  Dec. 13,2010 (11:59 pm Hawaii time)
     Notifications sent out: Feb. 21,2011 
     Final versions due:      March 7,2011
