editorial board members of the top Semantic Web journals as well as
other workshop participants. The goal is to help attendees to turn the
sketches into successful submissions and avoid common stumbling

People who wish to participate will be asked to submit a paper sketch
(see below). The accepted sketeches will be read by the editors and
the other chosen participants prior the workshop. Prior to the
workshop, participants whose sketches have been accepted to will

workshop, participants will meet in small groups which includes an
editorial board memeber. During this discussion, participants will
receive specific feedback on on the possible issues to address in
order to turn the sketch into a possibly successful submission.
