We are proud to announce that the 12th edition of the SEMANTiCS, which is a well known platform for professionals and researchers who make semantic computing work, will be held in the city of Leipzig from September 12th till 15th. The event is hosted by the University of Leipzig and is supported by InfAi e.V. and the Semantic Web Company.
Leipzig, already celebrating its 1,000 years anniversary in 2015, recently gained growing international recognition, due to the famous New York Times and The Guardian articles from 2014 which appoint Leipzig as the “New” or “Better Berlin”.
After being declared to be the capital of depletion, as thousands of people migrated during the 90’s , Leipzig recovered and rose to be a cultural hot spot in Germany. With its incredible boom during the past 10 years more and more people moved to Hypezig not only because of its mix of long traditions and rich culture, but also because of its vibrant creative art, music scene and charismatic flair. The list of features that help Leipzig to life up to this reputation is sheer endless.
Speaking of traditions. The success of last years’ SEMANTiCS conference in Vienna with more than 280 attendees from 22 countries proves that SEMANTiCS is already an established transfer-oriented summit for semantic web enthusiast. This years’ event will continue the tradition of bringing together information managers, IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from organisations ranging from NGOs, through public administrations to some of world’s largest companies who discuss recent developments in various fields of the semantic web universe.
Our program is currently still under construction, yet today we can already reveal so much: under the motto SEMANTiCS - The Linked Data conference, the projects LEDS and DBpedia will featured. In dedicated sessions, current research and developments in the area of Linked Enterprise Data Services and Public Data Infrastructure will be presented and discussed by scientist from the University of Leipzig and their project partners.
