The ISWC 2018 Posters and Demonstrations complement the paper tracks of the conference and offer an opportunity for presenting late-breaking research results, on-going research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. The informal setting of the Posters and Demonstrations encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the presenters, while offering participants an effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends and to network with other researchers.
We invite submissions relevant to the area of the Semantic Web and which address, but are not limited to, the topics of the Research Track; the In-Use Track; and the Resource Track. Technical posters, reports on Semantic Web software systems (free or commercial), descriptions of completed work, and work in progress are all welcome. Demonstrations are intended to showcase innovative Semantic Web related implementations and technologies, both in academia and in industry.

2. Call for Papers: Blue Sky Ideas
The Blue Sky Ideas is back to ISWC! Similarly, as in 2011, this track is sponsored by the prestigious CCC Blue Sky ideas and solicits visionary ideas, long term challenges, and opportunities in the semantic web research that are outside of the current topics in the field and are not mature or specific enough to be accepted in the regular research track. The contributions should find the right arguments to convince that the proposed topic is promising and should relate the talk as much as possible to the existing literature from relevant fields, possibly also fields outside the Semantic Web Community.
The industry track seeks to present the state of adoption of semantic technologies in industrial settings. Semantics is used in applications in many industries, including media, financials, telecommunications, healthcare, life sciences, government, intelligence, smart cities, and cultural heritage. It enables applications capabilities as varied as business intelligence, analytics, search, content management, knowledge management, recommendation systems, information extraction and data integration.
We encourage results and ideas from companies large and small. We welcome contributions about success stories as well as experience reports and discussions of obstacles that stand in the way of large-scale adoption of semantic technologies.
