The Semantic Web Science Association (SWSA) is seeking statements of interest from organizations or consortia interested in hosting the 11th International Semantic Web Conference, ISWC 2012. The conference series moves regularly between the Americas, Europe, and the Asia/Pacific region and we expect that the 2012 edition will be held in the
US Americas in late October or early November 2012.
Organizations wishing to host ISWC 2012 should contact SWSA President Professor James Hendler (email@example.com) who will work with the SWSA members who are co-ordinating the bidding process for ISWC 2012.
The process comprises two stages. During the first stage, statements of interest are solicited through an open call that request responses using a simple form. Once the first phase is complete, SWSA will shortlist a number of applications, who will be invited to submit a full proposal, using a standard form and budget template. More information about the ISWC Conference Series and the bidding process for hosting a conference in the series can be found in the ISWC Conference Guide.
The important dates for applying to host a Conference in 2012 are:
- September 30, 2010: Deadline for receiving statements of interest
- November 15, 2010: Notifications to shortlisted bids are sent out
- January 15, 2011: Formal applications received from shortlisted bids
- March 1, 2011: SWSA decides on location for the 2012 Conference

The US National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Semantic Web Science Association (SWSA) plan to contribute funds to support participation by full-time students in 2009 International Semantic Web Conference. SWSA and NSF anticipate providing 10,000€ and $20,000 respectively, with NSF funds being earmarked to support students enrolled at U.S. Universities. We anticipate that the SWSA funds will support 15 awards of 600-800€, and that the NSF funds will support 13 awards of approximately $1500.
Confirmation of the funding, as well as details on how to apply will be available on the ISWC 2009 Web site.
Last year’s student fellows made significant contributions to the conference, and we look forward to this year’s fellows being similarly engaged. In selecting applications for travel support, preference will be given to students selected to participate in the doctoral consortium, followed by students who are first author on a paper accepted at the conference, followed by students who have other authorship on a conference or workshop paper.
Applications are due August 21, with notification of success by September 7.
Direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
