The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) is the premier international forum where Semantic Web / Linked Data researchers, practitioners, and industry specialists come together to discuss, advance, and shape the future of semantic technologies on the web, within enterprises and in the context of the public institution.

 We are very pleased to announce that we got 6 papers accepted at ISWC 2017 for presentation at the main conference. Additionally, we also had 6 Posters/Demo papers accepted.

Furthermore, we are happy to win the SWSA Ten-Year Best Paper Award, which recognizes the highest impact papers from the 6th International Semantic Web Conference in Busan, Korea in 2007.
