Posters and Demos

The posters and demos track of ESWC provides a forum for late-breaking results, on-going research projects, and innovative ideas, as well as prototypes of semantic technologies and their applications in various domains. Submissions to the posters and demos track may cover all areas of Semantic Web research and applications, such as Linked Data and Knowledge Graphs, Ontologies, Reasoning, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Data Quality and Data Integration, and Semantic Data Management, as well as applications from Life Sciences, eGovernment, Business, Manufacturing, eScience, Emergency and Crisis Management, etc. Posters and demos will be presented in a separate, interactive session, providing the opportunity for engaging in discussions and direct exchange.


Best poster and demo awards

Candidates for the best poster and demo, which will be selected during the conference, will be invited to give a short presentation during the conference. The winners will be announced during the closing ceremony.

Papers that exceed the given page length or do not follow the LNCS guidelines will be rejected without review. Furthermore, double submissions to other any conferences, workshops, or tracks of ESWC will be rejected. Posters and demonstrations accompanying an accepted research or in-use/industrial track paper must be marked as such and provide an explanation of the additional value of the P&D submission. Submissions must be uploaded on Easychair selecting the ESWC 2018 Posters and Demos Track at
