SEMANTiCS Industry Workshops and Tutorials

SEMANTiCS 2016 is a major venue for industrial innovation and features an industry workshop and tutorial program addressing the diverse practical interests of its audience. This program is intended to offer a rich diversity of high quality information valuable to conference attendees and local participants seeking to pick up new skills and stay up-to-date regarding the latest developments in the community. We encourage submissions of proposals on all topics in the general areas of SEMANTiCS 2016 and proposals bridging or introducing new perspectives in these areas. Workshops and tutorials may incorporate panel discussions, lightning talks, meetings, networking or hands-on sessions, hackathons and other practical formats where applicable. Rooms for business or project meetings are available upon request as well.

SEMANTiCS 2016 Workshops and Tutorials - Scope & Goals

Satellite events at SEMANTiCS 2016 allow your organisation or project to push your topics and gain increased visibility.  The events will be announced on the SEMANTiCS and DBpedia website (tutorials only) and they will be seen by all participants. SEMANTiCS 2016  industry workshops and tutorials are incubators for industrial and scientific communities that form and share a particular research and development agenda. They provide a forum for presenting widely recognized contributions and findings to a diverse and knowledgeable community. Furthermore, the event can be used as a dissemination activity in the scope of large research projects or as a closed format for research/commercial project consortia meetings.

About SEMANTiCS

The annual SEMANTiCS conference is the meeting place for researchers and professionals who push the boundaries of semantic computing and who understand its benefits and encounter its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts professionals and researchers alike ranging from NPOs, through public administrations to the largest companies in the world.

The success of last year’s conference in Vienna with more than 280 attendees from 22 countries proves that SEMANTiCS 2016 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 the major industry related event across Europe for our community.
