10th ESWC 2013 -- Semantics and Big Data May 26-30, 2013.
Montpellier, France. http://2013.eswc-conferences.org/
==== Call for Tutorials ====
ESWC 2013 invites tutorials that address the interests of its
varied audience: people new to the Semantic Web, Semantic Web
researchers and practitioners that wish to learn new
technologies, users of Semantic Web technologies, and
representatives of government and funding agencies as well as
potential private investors in Semantic Web technologies. We
welcome submissions of tutorial proposals on all major topics
related to semantic technologies.
We especially solicit proposals for tutorials of the following
- Tutorials with a coherent theme providing an introduction to
new semantic technologies and trends.
- Tutorials describing the application of semantic technologies
in specific domains (e.g., life-sciences, e-government,
- Tutorials presenting techniques from other research fields that
are of relevance for Semantic Web research especially in
relationship to the tracks of the conference (e.g., techniques
from social science, database techniques, NLP techniques etc.).
Tutorials can be half a day or a full day.
We advise having more than one presenter and no more than three,
preferably from different institutions, bringing different
perspectives to the workshop topic.
Tutorials may focus entirely on theoretical aspects; however, we
encourage organisers to incorporate hands-on sessions where
appropriate. The tutorials should reach a good balance between
the topic coverage and its relevance to the community.
