The Semantic Web Community gathered in Crete for the 20th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2023) to hear the latest results in research, technologies, and applications in its field. This is a major venue for discussing the latest scientific results and technology innovations around semantic technologies. In addition to a technical program organized over numerous tracks, the five-day event featured workshops and tutorials, system descriptions and demos, a posters exhibition and a doctoral symposium.

As usual, there was a strong representation from KMi at this year’s event.

Professor John Domingue, President of STI International which runs the conference series, opened the PhD symposium with a keynote talk entitled “Spending as Much Time as Possible on the Beach: Reflections on an Academic Career”. John also chaired two special events:

  • The 20th Anniversary Panel featuring Dieter Fensel, Asunción Gómez-Pérez, Ian Horrocks and Stefan Decker, who are some of the key players in establishing the field of Semantic Web. The Panel exchanged perspectives about the past and looked ahead to the future.
  • The annual STI International Board meeting which oversees the ESWC Conference series.

KMi members co-organised or participated in six workshops:

John Domingue said: “It has been a privilege to collaborate with the Semantic Web community over the past two decades. It was exciting to contemplate what we may achieve together in the next twenty years”.
