Community Meetings

Meet the community at one of our upcoming events.

Knowledge Graphs in Action: DBpedia, Linked Geodata and Geo-information Integration - SEMANTiCS Satellite event

The SEMANTiCS Onsite Conference 2020 had to be postponed till September 2021. Only pre-recorded videos and a live moderation will be shown on September 9, 2020. To bridge the gap until 2021, we took the opportunity to organize the Knowledge Graphs in Action online track as a SEMANTiCS satellite event on October 6, 2020. This new online conference is a combination of two existing events: the DBpedia Community Meeting, which is regularly held as part of the SEMANTiCS, and the annual Spatial Linked Data conference organised by EuroSDR and the Platform Linked Data Netherlands. We glued it together and as a bonus we added a track about Geo-information Integration organized by EuroSDR.

2nd DBpedia Stack Tutorial (Online)

Over the last year, the DBpedia core team has consolidated great amount of technology around DBpedia. This tutorial is targeted for developers (in particular of DBpedia Chapters) that wish to learn how to replicate local infrastructure such as loading and hosting an own SPARQL endpoint. A core focus will also be the new DBpedia Stack, which contains several dockerized applications that are automatically loading data from the databus. After the successful first tutorial, we are organizing a second that will be held on September 2nd, 2020 at 17:00-18:00 CEST.
