[CfP] ISWC 2019 - **One week** to apply for student travel grants, early registration & Minute Madness
18th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2019) “Knowledge Graphs, Linked Data, Linked Schemas and AI on the Web” Auckland, New Zealand, 26-30 October, 2019 https://iswc2019.semanticweb.org/
The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) is the premier venue for presenting fundamental research, innovative technology, and applications concerning semantics, data, and the Web. It is the most important international venue to discuss and present latest advances and applications of the semantic Web, knowledge graphs, linked data, ontologies and artificial intelligence (AI) on the Web.
ISWC attracts a large number of high quality submissions every year and participants from both industry and academia. ISWC brings together researchers from different areas, such as artificial intelligence, databases, natural language processing, information systems, human computer interaction, information retrieval, web science, etc., who investigate, develop and use novel methods and technologies for accessing, interpreting and using information on the Web in a more effective way.
Become part of ISWC 2019 by submitting to the following tracks & activities or just attend them! (All deadlines are 23:59:59 Hawaii time.)

1. Student Travel Grants ******************************************* If you are a student interested in attending ISWC 2019, you may be eligible to apply for travel grants to support the costs of travel and lodging.

The Minute Madness is a tradition at the International Semantic Web Conference that started back in 2011. It has always been an entertaining session that provides conference participants with a quick and fun overview of the presented works at the conference.
This year's ISWC will feature for the first time a stand-alone Minute Madness Call. This means, the session will be opened up to every conference attendee to submit a contribution to the Minute Madness call. Although we aim to accommodate as many talk proposals as possible, the submissions in the form of a 1-minute video (using strictly one slide) will be ranked by a Program Committee and the best 40 contributions will be selected. Accepted Posters and Demos, willing to advertise themselves before the dedicated session, will need to submit a Contribution to the Minute Madness call, but will be assessed separately from the other submissions.
The rules for submissions and for the Minute Madness are as follows:
1. You have exactly one slide that will be shown for exactly one minute. The slide must not have any animation. Your video submissions will also be exactly one minute, but it can be a mobile recording of yourself speaking, dancing, singing or any other form of communication that conveys your message. However, any recording beyond the minute will not be assessed. 2. During the session the slides will be advanced automatically. In between the 1-minute talks a transition slide will be shown for five seconds. This transition slide will be generated by us and it will contain the title of the next 1-minute talk. 3. Given the limited time, it is highly advisable to avoid trying to present technical details of your work. Instead, you should provide the audience with a very high-level idea, ideally, presented in a catchy, entertaining manner.
Please, remember that the minute madness is about combining science with entertainment, so be prepared to captivate the audience, no boring talks allowed!
