Call for Workshop Proposals 3rd European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2006) 11 - 14 June 2006 Budva (Montenegro) http://www.eswc2006.org/ ESWC 2006 invites the submission of workshop proposals on specific aspects of the Semantic Web, particularly relating to the subject areas indicated by the topics below. We encourage workshops which will discuss fundamental research issues driven by academic interests or more applied industrial or commercial concerns. The format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers. Workshops can vary in length from a half day to a full day. Having more than one co-organizer for a workshop is strongly advised. Accepted workshops will receive one free registration to the ESWC 2006 (full registration incl. tutorial, workshop, conference, reception and conference dinner). Workshop attendees must pay the ESWC 2006 workshop registration fee.
