We encourage submissions from researchers and practitioners in academia, industry, government, and consulting. Submitted manuscripts may describe either:
- original research, or work in progress that is sufficiently mature to be presented to the Semantic Web community at large;
- work that is of high relevance for the Semantic Web community and that has already been published or accepted recently (i.e., in 2009 or 2010) at a highly ranked conference in the Semantic Web area (ISWC, ESWC) or in related areas (e.g., KR, IJCAI, AAAI, PODS, SIGMOD, VLDB, ...);
- a position statement on one or more aspects of relevance for the Semantic Web.
We especially welcome what the authors consider as their recent most important contribution to Semantic Web research, whether original, work in progress, or already accepted or published.
Authors should clearly indicate on the cover page to which of the above categories (original, work in progress, accepted, published, or position paper) their submission belongs. For already published or accepted papers they should indicate also the publication venue and date.
Papers will be reviewed by the PC co-chairs and the members of the SWAP steering committee, to judge relevance to SWAP and potential interest for the Semantic Web community. Based on the evaluation, papers will be accepted either for oral presentation, or for poster presentation. Submissions that are not relevant to SWAP 2010 will be rejected.
Accepted contributions will be distributed in electronic format at the workshop. After the workshop, selected contributions will undergo a further critical reviewing process and, if accepted, will be published online in a volume of post-workshop proceedings of the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series, ISSN 1613-0073, http://ceur-ws.org/.
Papers must be submitted electronically using the EasyChair submission system. Manuscripts should be in pdf and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style. Information concerning typesetting can be obtained directly from Springer at http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/authors.html. The maximum length of submissions is 16 pages for regular papers (original, work in progress, accepted, or published), and 2 pages for positions papers.
