The International Semantic Web Conference this year witnessed another populous KMi delegation, with 8 people from the lab attending the conference, which took place in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA, on October 11-15. The KMi contributed in a variety of ways to the main Semantic Web conference, both with a significant presence in the organising committee and by presenting a keynote, a research paper, two workshop papers and three demos.
 
Mathieu d’Aquin served as In-Use and Software Track chair and also gave the keynote at the 1st International Workshop on LINKed EDucation workshop, entitled “Sharing knowledge is what we do: The Education and/or The Semantic Web”. Miriam Fernandez served as Workshop and Tutorial Chairs and was one of the senior researchers involved in the mentoring lunch, which is an annual ISWC event that brings together students and early-career researchers with experienced researchers.
In the competitive research track (22% acceptance rate), Francesco Osborne and Enrico Motta authored a paper on the automatic generation of huge ontologies of research topics titled “Klink-2: Integrating Multiple Web Sources to Generate Semantic Topic Networks”.

Aba-Sah Adzie and John Domingue contributed to the workshop “Visualizations and User Interfaces for Ontologies and Linked Data“ (VOILA 2015) with the paper “Visual Exploration of Formal Requirements for Data Science Demand Analysis”. At the Doctoral Consortium, Angelo Salatino, a first year PhD student at KMi, presented the paper “Early Detection and Forecasting of Research Trends“ and discussed it with PhD students and senior researchers.

KMi also contributed three exciting demos to the Posters and Demos session:

  • Ilaria Tiddi presented BASIL: A Cloud Platform for Sharing and Reusing SPARQL Queries as Web APIs on behalf of Enrico Daga, Luca Panziera and Carlos Pedrinaci
     
  • Bottom-Up Ontology Construction with Contento by Enrico Daga, Mathieu D'Aquin and Enrico Motta from KMi and Aldo Gangemi from CNR-ISTC Rome
     
  • The RASH Framework: enabling HTML+RDF submissions in scholarly venues co-authored by Francesco Osborne.
The next ISWC will be held in Kobe, Japan, USA on October 17-21, with Carlos Pedrinaci as sponsorship chairs
