Workshop Organization - Explanation of Paper Types

The goal of the End User Semantic Web Interaction Workshop was to provide an interactive environment to discuss the core issues and obstacles to enable End Users to take advantage (and use) the Semantic Web. To allow sufficient time for focused discussions and breakout group interactivity we (the workshop chairs) decided to deviate from the usual workshop setup.

First, we chose only a few papers to be presented. The papers where chosen to set the stage, to provoke discussions and to present existing "demoable" visions of end user interactions. These are going to be presented in the morning and are going to allow sufficient time for interactive discussions.

Second, we are going to have focused break-out discussion groups. These are going to be mainly organized in the afternoon. They are going to be facilitated by a facilitator, with ample experience to enable discussions in such large groups.

As a consequence we have accepted to types of papers:

  • Papers for presentation
    These will be presented at the workshop and are a fixed element of the workshop plan.
  • Accepted papers
    These might be called upon for presentation assuming that the subject under discussion is addressed in the discussios during the day.

We hope that this workshop organization will provide an interactive and enriching discussion for all participants.
