#SEMANTiCS 2016 Scientific Workshops Scope & Goals

SEMANTiCS 2016 scientific workshops provide a forum for groups of researchers and practitioners to discuss topics in semantic web research and industrial applications. They provide opportunities for researchers and practitioners to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas before these ideas have matured to warrant conference or journal publication. SEMANTiCS 2016 scientific workshops also serve as incubators for scientific communities that form and share a particular research agenda.
The workshops may be either half or full day long and will be held on the day before the main SEMANTiCS 2016 conference (September 12th, 2016). Participation in SEMANTiCS 2016 scientific workshops is typically free. The workshops can produce workshop proceedings to be published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings ( The best accepted workshop papers will be considered for publication in the SEMANTiCS 2016 conference proceedings, furthermore, a selection of workshop papers will be invited to present a poster at the SEMANTiCS 2016 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 workshop attendees learn from industry experts and top researchers about emerging trends and hot topics in the fields of semantic software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies, methodologies in knowledge modelling and text & data analytics. Since the SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse, both workshops participants and organisers will benefit from the experience.

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.
