SEMANTiCS Workshops and Tutorials

SEMANTiCS 2019 is a major venue for research and industrial innovation and features a workshop and tutorial program addressing the diverse practical interests of its audience. This program is intended to offer a rich diversity of topics 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 2019 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.

Scope & Goals

Workshops and tutorials at SEMANTiCS 2019 allow your organisation or project to advance and promote your topics and gain increased visibility. The workshops and tutorials will be announced on the SEMANTiCS website and they will be seen by all participants. SEMANTiCS 2019 workshops and tutorials can be incubators for industrial and scientific communities that form and share a particular research and development agenda. They provide a forum for presenting 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 Conference

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.

SEMANTiCS 2019 will bring 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.
