 ********************************************************
Call for Doctoral Consortium
10th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2011)
http://iswc2011.semanticweb.org/calls/doctoral-consortium/
October 23 - 27, 2011
Bonn, Germany
DEADLINE IN 2 WEEKS - JULY 11
********************************************************

The ISWC 2011 Doctoral Consortium will take place as part of the 10th
International Semantic Web Conference at the Rhine-Moselle Hall in Koblenz,
Germany. This forum will provide doctoral students an opportunity to share
and develop their research ideas in a critical but supportive environment,
get feedback from mentors who are senior members of the Semantic Web
research community, explore issues related to academic and research careers,
and build relationships with other Semantic Web PhD students from around the
world.

The Consortium aims to broaden the perspectives and improve the research and
communication skills of these students as a way to contribute both to the
individuals as well as to the broader research community.

The Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who have a specific
research proposal and some preliminary results, but with sufficient time
prior to completing their dissertation to benefit from the consortium
experience. In the consortium the students will present their proposals and
get specific feedback/advice on how to improve their research plan.

All proposals submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will undergo a thorough
reviewing process with a view to providing detailed and constructive
feedback. The best 15 submissions will be selected for presentation at the
Doctoral Consortium and will be published in the conference proceedings. The
top 6 of those will be selected for full presentation and the next 9
submissions will be accepted as short presentations.

===================
Topics
===================
The Consortium has the same scope of technical topics as the main ISWC
conference including
- Management of Semantic Web Data
- Natural Language Processing
- Ontologies and Semantics
- Semantic Web Engineering
- Social Semantic Web
- User Interfaces to the Semantic Web
- Applications of the Semantic Web

===================
Submission Information
===================
Students are asked to submit an 8 page paper on their PhD research that
addresses the following questions:
- What problem are you trying to solve ? What is your hypothesis?
- Why is the problem/hypothesis important/relevant?
- How have others attempted to address this in the past ?
- How are you planning to address this?
- Why do you think you will succeed where others failed ?
- How will you measure your success - faster/more accurate/less
failures/etc. ?
(It might be useful to structure the proposal around these questions.)

Submissions must be in pdf and be formatted according to the Springer
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
Submissions must be no longer than 8 pages.
For details on the LNCS style, see Springer's Author Instructions at
