CFP EXTENDED for both European and NYC Semantic Technology & Business Conferences

Your Face Here?This fall, we will offer two events in the popular Semantic Technology & Business Conference series (#SemTechBiz).

Eric Franzon, Conference Chair, says, “We have received many excellent proposals for both the European  (Berlin, 18-19 September) and the New York (October 1-3) events. Perhaps due to Summer holidays, we have also received more requests than usual for deadline extensions. As a result, we are re-opening the CFP process and will now accept submissions for both events until end of day, Monday, July 22.”

Sponsorship opportunities and registration options are also available at this time. Details for each event are below.

LOGO: Semantic Technology & Business Conference; June 2-5, 2013, San Francisco, CaliforniaThere’s still time to make a speaking proposal for the Semantic Technology & Business Conference, June 2-5 in San Francisco.

CFP Announced: 2013 Semantic Technology & Business Conference – San Francisco

LOGO: Semantic Technology & Business Conference; June 2-5, 2013, San Francisco, CaliforniaFollowing successful runs in London and New York City, the Semantic Technology & Business Conference (#SemTechBiz) is returning to San Francisco June 2-5, 2013. Today, we are pleased to announce that the Call For Presentations is open for submissions.

The deadline to enter is January 18, 2013, and we are currently seeking proposals for:

  • Conference Sessions – 45 minutes
  • Panel Sessions – 45 minutes (must propose moderator and panelists, even if not finalized)
  • Tutorials – 3 hours
  • Lightning Talks – 5 minutes

What are we looking for?

We are interested in a wide variety of presentations, from business and consumer applications through to fundamental technology discussions.  Over the years, the emphasis of the program has gradually shifted more towards practical experience as Semantic Technologies have matured and gained adoption both on the web and in enterprise systems, 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 from you as well.  Keep in mind that precedence will be given to sessions that offer an interactive element and are designed to provide actionable ideas (get to the heart of the matter!). And having said all that, we still keep time-slots available for cutting edge research and thought-leadership.  So SemTechBiz really is an all-inclusive program for the community.

SemTech 2011 Call for Presentations Now Open

The Call for Presentations (CFP) for the 2011 Semantic Technology Conference is now open!  Full details on the CFP requirements and process are available here:

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.
