SemTech 2011 Call for Presentations

Presentations for the conference will be reviewed by the Program Advisory Committee (PAC) – a group of semantic technology experts who have offered their time and expertise to help ensure that the educational agenda is once again representative of the best work in the field.  I’m grateful for the assistance of all the PAC members, who are listed here:

SemTech 2011 Program Advisory Committee

We’re interested in all sorts of presentations, from business and consumer applications through to fundamental technology discussions.  With each year, the emphasis of the program gradually shifts more towards practical experience as semantic technology matures and is more widely deployed, so we’re very much looking for semantic case studies and project experience. If you are developing a tool, or using semantics to create an exciting new start-up company, we want to hear your story as well.  And having said all that, we still keep timeslots available for cutting edge research and thought-leadership.  So SemTech really is an all-inclusive program for the entire community.

Feel free to email me with any questions at tony@semanticweb.com.  And I’ll reiterate something I said a couple of weeks ago – if you know someone who is doing interesting work, please tell me about him or her so I can invite that person to participate.  We don’t claim to know everyone in the field so your assistance in finding good speakers is invaluable to the process of creating a great educational forum.
