Call for Polemics at SePublica 2013

There is much controversy in the world of publishing and semantic
publishing needs to both create waves in publishing and to ride the
waves of change approaching in the world of publishing. We therefore
invite statements for presentation at a discussion session at
SePublica 2013 at ESWC in Montpellier on 26 May 2013.

We want radical, controversal and polemical positions to be
articulated about semantic publishing and how we should achieve
semantic publishing of scholarly works, data and all sorts of stuff.
To be presented, statements must be relevant, legal and not too
offensive(as judged by the workshop organisers).

All acccepted statements wil be presented. Submission will be through
easychair; all accepted polemics will be
published before the meeting on the Knowledgeblog platform
(, where they will be permanently
archived, and open for public comments. Submissions should be limited
to 500 words. We can accept submissions in most formats, including
Word, simple HTML (nothing in the header, no active content) or Latex
(again the simpler the better). Presentations on the day wil be
restricted to one slide that will be presented for two minutes (we
will do this via timed slides) - all slide presentations must be
submitted in advance. Presentations will be followed by a vivid


1. one page statements by * to
2. Deadline, 10th of May, notification by 15th of May.
3. Slides should be sent by the 20th of May.

Illustrating what we would like to have...

Here's To The Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers.
The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things
differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for
the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or
vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change
things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them
as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy
enough to think they can change the world - are the ones who DO !"

I believe this is from Steve Jobs, but I am not sure about the right
atribution of sentence.
