A further highlight during our conference will be the DBpedia Day which also takes place September 14th, 2017. DBpedia enthusiasts work towards a Public Data Infrastructure for a Large, Multilingual, Semantic Knowledge Graph. During the SEMANTiCs 2017, the DBpedia community will get together for the 9th edition of the DBpedia Community Meeting, which comes along with a showcase session on current developments, an ontology and DBpedia Dev session about technical issues and challenges in DBpedia as well as hands-on tutorials for DBpedia newbies.
