post-proposal with each submission.  Since we aim to foster the
presentation of new ideas, including newly starting PhD projects,
results of experimental or theoretical evaluation is not a
prerequisite.  All abstracts will be peer reviewed on the basis of the
originality, soundness, and scientific merit of the research goals,
the quality of the presentation, and related work.  In addition the
reviewers will judge whether a plausible plan and appropriate methods
are proposed for conducting the planned research. 

The student colloquium will take place on the 10th of October (a day
before the main conference).  Authors of accepted abstracts are to
give a presentation of the research ideas and gather feedback from
well established researchers in the field.  Authors will also be
expected to present a poster of their work during demonstration
session at ISWC (October 12).

The abstracts will be published in the ISWC extended proceedings that
will be distributed during the conference and will be made available
to the public electronically.

Funding for ISWC registration, travel and hotel is available and will
be distributed based on need and quality of submission.
