There are important new additions to ESWC 2020 information on this website and on VideoLectures:

Post-conference Symposium

As announced, we are planning a smaller on-site post-conference symposium in Heraklion, Greece in mid-October.

If you have registered for ESWC 2020 you will get a discount on the registration fee for the symposium. Stay tuned for updates.

ESWC 2020 will be a virtual conference

ESWC 2020 will be a virtual conference between the original dates of May 31 and June 4.

While we still work out the details, the following is the high-level structure:

  • The main paper tracks (research, resources and in-use tracks) will be run in an asynchronous fashion, with screencasts from the authors and an online forum for questions and discussions via the website.
  • We go ahead with the original schedule for the proceedings of the main paper tracks; authors have to register by the end of April.
  • The updated registration fees will be in-line with other virtual conferences.
  • The satellite events (workshops, tutorials, posters, demos, the doctoral consortium and the industrial track) will be run in a synchronous fashion, supported by chat and bidirectional audio and video.
  • We go ahead with the original schedule for the satellite contributions as post-proceedings.
  • Because we are optimists, we plan a small optional post-conference symposium in Heraklion in the first half of October if the travel restrictions permit.

Please plan accordingly. We will provide updates via the website, Twitter and Facebook.
