The 1st Annual Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC) aims to initiate the series of ASWC conferences which will present the latest results in Semantic Web technologies. ASWC will be the first conference on Semantic Web technologies taking place in Asia and will cover all aspects of Semantic Web research and development. We invite proposals for the Demo Session. This program is intended to showcase innovative Semantic Web related implementations and technologies. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation, relevance, scientific contribution, reusability, and presentation, by an international committee.
