The Asian Semantic Web conference is meanwhile recognized as the yearly conference on theoretical foundations, technological building blocks and practical applications of semantic technologies on the Asian continent. Targeted at both academia and industry, the conference
will present the latest research and development of the Semantic Web and its related technologies. It will bring together researchers in relevant disciplines such as artificial intelligence, knowledge modeling, logic, databases, social networks, Web services, distributed computing, Web engineering, information systems, natural language processing, multimedia, and human-computer interaction.
As integral part of this conference the poster track is an opportunity for researchers and developers to present late-breaking achievements, ongoing projects, and innovative early ideas. It should provide authors and attendees a forum for exchanging experiences and establishing potential future collaborations. We welcome different types of submissions, ranging from descriptions of completed research and work in progress to more technical topics and practical applications.
Authors must submit a two-page abstract formatted according to the information for LNCS authors. The topics of the poster track are fully aligned with the program of the main conference and include
Semantic Web Technologies
Semantic Web Services
Semantic Web Applications
Social Semantic Web
Submissions will be evaluated for acceptability by a committee of independent reviewers. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the call, originality, potential impact and quality of the presentation.
Full papers rejected in the other tracks, notably the research track of ASWC2008, will not automatically be considered for the poster track. A separate poster submission must be made. A poster can be provided in addition to a paper accepted for presentation in the research track or can be used to present work that was insufficiently mature to be accepted there.
Submission and reviewing of posters will be electronic by sending an email to the poster chair firstname.lastname@example.org. Posters must be submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Papers that exceed the 2 pages limit, do not follow the LNCS guidelines or are not submitted as PDF documents will be automatically rejected without a review.
