Submission Details

The URSW workshop will be accepting submissions of technical papers and position papers. Each submission will be evaluated for acceptability by at least four members of the Program Committee. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the topic of uncertainty reasoning for the Semantic Web, technical merit, originality, potential significance, and clarity. Since all accepted papers will be presented at the workshop, we require that at least one of the submitting authors must be a registered participant at the ISWC 2005 Conference, and committed to attend the URSW Workshop.

Technical papers should follow the same submission format used by the ISWC 2005 Conference for papers submitted to its Academic Research track, i.e., the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Technical papers submitted to the URSW Workshop must not exceed 10 pages, including figures, tables, and references. Submissions exceeding this limit will not be reviewed.

Position papers consist of a summary of ideas, projects, or any research efforts that are relevant to the URSW Workshop and must not exceed 2 pages. Submission of position papers should comply with the IJCAI format guidelines, which the IJCAI organizing committee have kindly allowed us to make available for download using this link.

Further, both technical and position papers must be submitted in PDF format (Adobe's Portable Document Format). Submission to the Workshop is only accepted in electronic format and should be sent to the organizing committee via the workshop email address: A printable version of the information contained here is available as a Call for Papers document, which can be downloaded using this link.

Following the general acceptance rules of the ISWC2005 conference, papers that, at the time of submission, are under review for or have already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference will not be accepted to the URSW workshop.
