The ISWC 2023 Posters and Demos Track offers an opportunity to present late-breaking research results, on-going research or resource projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. The Lightning Talks Track will be open to all accepted Poster & Demo Track submissions, and a separate call will allow anyone else to submit a presentation proposal to the Lightning Track.

The informal setting of the Posters and Demos Track encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about their work. These discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the presenters and will offer participants an effective way to broaden their knowledge of emerging research trends and to engage in networking with other researchers.

Important Dates – All deadlines are 23:59 AoE (anywhere on Earth)

Activities Due Date
Posters & demos submissions due July 19th, 2023
Author notifications August 30th, 2023
Camera-ready submissions due September 13th, 2023


Topics of Interest

We invite submissions relevant to the areas of Semantic Web, Knowledge Graphs, Linked Data and Data Spaces which address, but are not limited to, the topics of the Research Track, the Resources Track, the In-Use Track, and the Industry Track. Visionary ideas, position statements, negative results and outrageous ideas are also welcome.

  • Posters that describe Semantic Web, Knowledge Graphs, Linked Data and Data Spaces software systems (free or commercial), and on-going or completed research work are welcome.
  • Demonstrations are intended to showcase innovative implementations and technologies on the aforementioned topics arising both from academia and industry.

We welcome submissions from Industry. Those submissions must not have the character of an advertisement or commercial product description and must convey a novel solution to a well defined problem. Authors of full papers accepted for the Research Track, the Resources Track, and the In-Use Track are encouraged to additionally submit a poster or demonstration about their work to the Posters and Demos track. The submission should be formatted as other submissions to this track, but it must also cite the accepted full paper and include a description of how it complements or adds value to the conference paper. The added value could include:

  • extended results and experiments not presented in the conference paper for reasons of space, or
  • a demonstration of a supporting prototype implementation.


Review Criteria

Submissions must clearly demonstrate relevance to the aforementioned topics of interest of ISWC 2023. Decisions about acceptance will be based on the relevance to the topics of interest, originality, potential significance, topicality, and clarity. All submissions to the Posters & Demos Track will be reviewed by at least three program committee members, including those related to the already accepted full papers. The purpose of the track is to allow the presentation of preliminary results to the community, provided that originality and significance of the contribution are ensured. Authors submitting a demonstration are strongly encouraged to include in the paper a pointer to an online demo or video of the application to be presented. The absence of a pointer will affect the overall evaluation of the submission.


Submission Details

All submissions should follow the double-blind submission policy of ISWC 2023 Research Track.

Authors must submit a four-page extended abstract for evaluation.

  • All submissions must be in English.
  • Submissions must be in PDF.
  • Submissions must be formatted in the style of CEURART ( 1-column style (LNCS is not valid anymore). The title should use the emphasizing capitalized style and the paper should not include page numbers.
  • Poster and demo submissions are at most 4 pages long, including references. Authors will be granted one extra page when preparing their camera-ready version in case of acceptance, in order to address the reviewers’ comments.
  • Papers that exceed the given page length or do not follow the CEURART guidelines may be rejected without review. Posters and demos accompanying an accepted main track paper must be marked as such and provide an explanation of the additional value of the poster or demo submission. Aside from such cases, double submissions to any other  conferences, workshops, or tracks of ISWC will be rejected.
  • Authors submitting a demonstration are strongly encouraged to include in the paper a pointer to an online demo or video of the application to be presented. The absence of a pointer will affect the overall evaluation of the submission.
  • We require the authors to specify the type of submission (whether poster or demo) before the first section of the paper (e.g., immediately after the abstract).

All submissions must be made electronically via EasyChair following this link.


Conference Attendance and presentation format

At least one of the authors must be a registered participant at the main conference and attend the Poster and Demo Session to present the work. The abstracts of accepted posters and demonstrations will be published on the conference website. They will be compiled into a CEUR Workshop Proceedings for Web retrieval and archiving. The metadata for all accepted submissions will be included in the conference metadata corpus. Detailed information about metadata creation will be provided with the acceptance notification of the successful submissions. As in previous years, student-authors of accepted submissions will be able to apply for registration support to attend the conference.

Presentation formats for accepted Posters and Demos, including Lightning Talks,  will be announced later.
