                              US2TS Call for Sessions Proposal




                                                 Deadline: October 31, 2018


US2TS Call for Sessions Proposal

Semantic Web is an inherently multi-disciplinary field. With an ever-growing dependence on the Web and the continuously increasing importance of large-scale data sharing, integration, and reuse, natural science researchers, geoscience, biology, library science, healthcare, the humanities, just to name a few, have also taken an increasing interest in the Semantic Web. 

The U.S. Semantic Technologies Symposium (US2TS) series provide a forum to ease the division between computer science, natural science, and academia/government/industry. 

We solicit anyone with an interest in the Semantic Web to propose a session for US2TS 2019. A session is any scientifically relevant activity that can fit into a 90 minutes slot (you can also propose a session that takes more than one slot).
Examples of sessions are:

  • a panel discussion
  • a series of presentations on a topic
  • breakout-style discussions on a proposed topic
  • a tutorial
  • etc.

As the main goal of the Symposium is to foster synergies and collaborations from different fields, we strongly recommend that:

  • At least 2-3 people, preferably from different institutions, propose the session. 
  • All the session leaders are asked to confirm and commit to participate at the time of submission. 
  • If your proposal already names speakers or panelists, you must state whether their participation is already confirmed. 
  • We encourage session proposals about cross-discipline topics which are of concern for participants from existing sub-communities 

Submission Guidelines

Please prepare a (max) 2-page submission indicating:

  1. Name of the session
  2. Topic: please indicate which cross-discipline topics the session will tackle. Here you can also specify if there is any particular vertical of interest (e.g. legal, life science, medical, publisher/scholarly data, cultural heritage, library, museum, oil/gas, engineering, airplane, e-commerce, etc)
  3. Type of session: Panel | Presentations | Break-out discussion | Tutorial | Other (please specify)
  4. Short description of the session
  5. The 2/3 person team (names & affiliations) that will lead the session
  6. Speakers(when applicable). It is strictly required to specify the speakers if you are proposing a panel, in which case they must be already confirmed.
  7. Expected participation (give a prediction of who would be interested in attending your session)

Submit your proposal on easychair.

Symposium outcome

After the Symposium we will invite all session chairs to co-edit a summary of the event, which will be formally published.
