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

October 5, 2020 - 10:00am to October 6, 2020 - 6:00pm in , , Categories: DBpedia Community Meeting, 0 comment(s)

The SEMANTiCS 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 held annually 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. As special joint sessions we will present three keynote speakers. The DBpedia Meeting is part of the conference and covers a Hackathon, a DBpedia Showcase Session and a special chapter session in which DBpedia language chapters from different parts of Europe will present the latest developments.
