#SEMANTiCS Industry & Transfer Tutorials and Workshops

SEMANTiCS 2016 is a major venue for industrial innovation and features
an industry & transfer tutorial and workshop 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. Tutorials and workshops 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 Tutorials and Workshop Scope & Goals

Satellite events at SEMANTiCS 2016 allow your organisation or project to
push your topics and gain increased visibility. The workshop and
tutorials will be announced on the SEMANTiCS and DBpedia website
(tutorials only) and will be seen by all participants. SEMANTiCS 2016
industry & transfer tutorials and workshops 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.

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

The success of last year¹s 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
