wwwlogoThe WWW conference is an important international forum for the evolution of the web, technical standards, the impact of the web on society, and its future. Our members have actively participated in the 26th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2017), which took place on the sunny shores of Perth, Western Australia /3-7 April 2017.

We are very pleased to report that:

A paper from our group was accepted for presentation as full research paper at WWW 2017:

A 10thWorkshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2017) was organized by Sören Auer, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Christian Bizer, Sarven Capadisli, Tom Heath, Krzysztof Janowicz, Jens Lehmann, Hideaki Tacked

The Web is developing from a medium for publishing textual documents into a medium for sharing structured data. This trend is fuelled by the adoption of Linked Data principles by a growing number of data providers and the increasing trend to include semantic markup of content of HTML pages. LDOW2017 aims to stimulate discussion and further research into the challenges of publishing, consuming, and integrating structured data from the Web as well as mining knowledge from the global Web of Data.

The audience showed high interest for the workshop.

Following discussion included further challenges on Pioneering the Linked Open Research Cloud and The Future of Linked Data.

WWW2017 was a great venue to meet the community, create new connections, talk about current research challenges, share ideas and settle new collaborations. We look forward to the next WWW conferences.


Until then, meet us at sda !
