The Posters and Demos session at EKAW 2020 aims to complement the research track by providing an opportunity to present and discuss late-breaking results, on-going projects and innovative prototypes. The informal setting of the P&D session encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the presenters, while offering participants an effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends and to start collaborations with other researchers.

We invite submissions relevant to the area of knowledge management, knowledge representation, engineering and acquisition, and knowledge in use; paying special attention to the EKAW 2020 focus on Ethical and Trustworthy Knowledge Engineering and Artificial Intelligence. Technical posters, reports on software systems, descriptions of completed work, and work in progress are all welcome.

Demonstrations are intended to showcase innovative knowledge engineering related implementations and technologies. All submissions are intended to convey a scientific result or work in progress and should not be advertisements for commercial software packages.

Submission Information

Submissions of maximum 4 pages long are invited, using the Springer Verlag LNCS formatting guidelines. Papers will be published in digital proceedings, possibly CEUR. The submissions should be uploaded to EasyChair using the following link: (select the EKAW Posters & Demos track).

All papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. To assess papers, the reviewers will judge the originality and significance in any of the EKAW research topics. The purpose of the session is to allow the presentation of innovative ideas, as well as of preliminary results, to the community, provided that originality and significance of the contribution are ensured.

Please make sure that it is clear how the demo or poster fits with the topics of interest of EKAW 2020. Authors submitting a demo are strongly encouraged to include in the paper a pointer to the online demo or video of the application to be presented. They should also make clear what exactly will be demonstrated to the participants (e.g., what datasets will be used, which functionalities will be shown). Posters and demonstrations accompanying an accepted paper in the main conference must be marked as such and provide an explanation of the additional value of the P&D submission.

At least one of the authors must be a registered participant at the conference, and present the work at the Demos and Posters Session.

The poster session will be a virtual event.
