Submissions via Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=semantics2015research The calls for “Industry & Use Case Presentations” and “Posters and Demos” at SEMANTiCS 2015 can be found here:http://www.semantics.cc/ The annual SEMANTiCS conference is the meeting place for professionals who make semantic computing work, who understand its benefits and encounter its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts information managers, IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from organisations ranging from NPOs, through public administrations to the largest companies in the world. Attendees learn from industry experts and top researchers about emerging trends and topics in the fields of semantic software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies, methodologies in knowledge modelling and text & data analytics. The SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse; attendees have responsibilities in interlinking areas like knowledge management, technical documentation, e-commerce, big data analytics, enterprise search, document management, business intelligence and enterprise vocabulary management. The success of last year’s conference in Leipzig with more than 230 attendees from 22 countries proves that SEMANTiCS 2015 will continue a long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world. There will be presentations on industry implementations, use case prototypes, best practices, panels, papers and posters to discuss semantic systems in birds-of-a-feather sessions as well as informal settings. SEMANTICS addresses problems common among information managers, software engineers, IT-architects and various specialist departments working to develop, implement and/or evaluate semantic software systems. The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel discussions of important topics and presentations by people who make things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues in any stage of implementation. The expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a long-term impact on their careers and organisations. These factors make SEMANTiCS for our community the major industry related event across Europe. The following ‘horizontals’ (research) and ‘verticals’ (industries) topics are of interest: Business Models, Governance & Data Strategies Knowledge Discovery & Intelligent Search Data Integration & Enterprise Linked Data Big Data & Text Analytics Data Portals & Knowledge Visualization Semantic Information Management Document Management & Content Management Terminology, Thesaurus & Ontology Management Industry & Engineering Life Sciences & Health Care Public Administration Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums (GLAM) Media, Publishing & Advertising Financial & Insurance Industry Telecommunications Energy, Transport & Environment Research / Innovation Papers The Research & Innovation track at SEMANTiCS welcomes the submission of papers on novel scientific research and/or innovations relevant to the topics of the conference.

How to Write an Executive Summary That Gets Your Business Plan Read

How to Write an Executive Summary That Gets Your Business Plan Read | e-governance solutions | Scoop.it
While the business plan’s executive summary is the first thing the readers of your business plan see, it should be the last part of the business plan you write.

The purpose of the executive summary of the business plan is to provide your readers with an overview of the business plan. Think of it as an introduction to your business. Therefore, your business plan’s executive summary will include summaries of:

a description of your company, including your products and/or services
your mission statement
your business’s management team
the market and your customer
marketing and sales
your competition
your business’s operations
financial projections and plans
The executive summary will end with a summary statement, a “last kick at the can” sentence or two designed to persuade the readers of your business plan that your business is a winner.

How to Write an Executive Summary

Start by following the list above and writing one to three sentences about each topic. (No more!)

If you have trouble crafting these summary sentences from scratch, review your business plan to get you going. In fact, one approach to writing the executive summary is to take a summary sentence or two from each of the business plan sections you’ve already written. (If you compare the list above to the sections outlined in the Business Plan Outline, you’ll see that this could work very well.)

Then finish your business plan’s executive summary with a clinching closing sentence or two that answers the reader’s question “Why is this a winning business?”

For example, a business plan’s executive summary for a pet-sitting business might conclude: “The loving on-site professional care that Pet Grandma will provide is sure to appeal to both cat and dog owners throughout the West Vancouver area.”



(You may find it useful to read the entire Pet Grandma executive summary example before you write your own.)

Tips for Writing the Business Plan’s Executive Summary

Focus on providing a summary. The business plan itself will provide the details and whether bank managers or investors, the readers of your business plan don’t want to have their time wasted.
Keep your language strong and positive. Don’t weaken your executive summary with weak language. Instead of writing, “Dogstar Industries might be in an excellent position to win government contracts”, write “Dogstar Industries will be in an excellent position...”
Keep it short -  no more than two pages long. Resist the temptation to pad your business plan’s executive summary with details (or pleas). The job of the executive summary is to present the facts and entice your reader to read the rest of the business plan, not tell him everything.
Polish your executive summary. Read it aloud. Does it flow or does it sound choppy? Is it clear and succinct? Once it sounds good to you, have someone else who knows nothing about your business read it and make suggestions for improvement.
Tailor it to your audience. If the purpose of your business plan is to entice investors, for instance, your executive summary should focus on the opportunity your business provides investors and why the opportunity is special. If the purpose of your business plan is to get a small business loan, focus on highlighting what traditional lenders want to see, such as management's experience in the industry and the fact that you have both collateral and strategies in place to minimize the lender's risk.
Put yourself in your readers’ place... and read your executive summary again. Does it generate interest or excitement in the reader? If not, why?
Remember, the executive summary of the business plan will be the first thing the readers of the business plan read. If it's poorly written, it will also be the last, as they set the rest of your business plan aside unread!
