Will you please stop sending these?
One of these messages was okay (even though I consider it mildly
inappropriate). This is the third one you've sent.
This is not what this mailing list is for.

==== Final Call for Tutorials ====
ESWC 2014 invites tutorials that address the interests of its varied
audience: people new to the Semantic Web, Semantic Web researchers and
practitioners that wish to learn new technologies, users of Semantic Web
technologies, and representatives of government and funding agencies as
well as potential private investors in Semantic Web technologies. We
welcome submissions of tutorial proposals on all major topics related to
We especially solicit proposals for tutorials of the following types:
- Tutorials with a coherent theme providing an introduction to new
semantic technologies and trends.
- Tutorials describing the application of semantic technologies in
specific domains (e.g., life-sciences, e-government, e-commerce, cultural
- Tutorials presenting techniques from other research fields that are of
relevance for Semantic Web research especially in relationship to the
tracks of the conference (e.g., techniques from social science, database
techniques, NLP techniques etc.).
Tutorials can be half a day or a full day.
We advise having more than one presenter and no more than three,
preferably from different institutions, bringing different perspectives to
the tutorial topic.
Tutorials may focus entirely on theoretical aspects; however, we encourage
organisers to incorporate hands-on sessions where appropriate. The
tutorials should reach a good balance between the topic coverage and its
relevance to the community.

it will be covered and specify the intended audience and any prerequisite
knowledge. Appropriate references to the material to be covered by the
