Papers (with up to 12 pages, including references) have to be formatted according to the LNCS style requirements and submitted via EasyChair no later than March 21, 2016.
Please note that you can participate in the challenge without submitting a paper (and also submit a paper without participating in the challenge, although your paper should have some connection to QALD).
All accepted challenge papers will be published by Springer in the CCIS series. In addition, ESWC will publish a selection of the best challenge papers in the Satellite Event proceedings (a separate Springer LNCS Volume) along with a selection of best workshop, poster and demo papers. The best challenge paper authors may be asked to resubmit a somewhat extended version of their paper. Both the challenge proceedings and the Satellite Events proceedings will be compiled after the conference.
