Last week, the 11th Summer School on Ontological Engineering and the Semantic Web took place.

Unlike other years, it was  held in Bertinoro (Italy) instead of Cercedilla (Spain) and relied on an extended organising committee such as Mathieu d’Aquin, Valentina Presutti and Oscar Corcho. KMiers, Ilaria Tiddi and Enrico Daga also helped to organise the summer school and arrange the social events.

There were tutorials from Claudia d’Amato, Philippe Cudre-Mauroux, Laura Hollink, Axel Ngonga, Axel Polleres, Maria-Ester Vidal, as well as talks from Frank van Harmelen, Steffen Staab, Roberto Navigli, Luc Steels and a hackday from IBM which aimed to engage students in research and the open challenges that the scientific community is currently facing.

Angelo Salatino, attended the summer school as a PhD student, along with other 58 students from different institutions all around the world:

 “During the summer school I had the chance to learn many things about the Semantic Web and how other research fields can be improved with the technologies it provides. I also attended some interesting talks from experts in this field and I worked on some of the current challenges in research which I consider useful for my career.

However, one of the most important things was that I had the chance to meet new people, that hopefully I will meet again in conferences and maybe we will have the chance to work together! If somebody were to ask me how I would describe the summer school, in brief I would say: exciting and useful to build your network of contacts!”  - Angelo Salatino, PhD student at KMi
