SEMANTiCS2016 in Leipzig - a successful conference for eccenca
Leipzig - 19th September 2016
On September 13-14, 2016 the European semantic community came to Leipzig for SEMANTiCS2016. With more than 250 participants from science and industry the conference offered interesting talks, discussions and information about challenges and opportunities of Linked Data and Semantic Systems.
eccenca supported the conference as a gold sponsor and presented itself at the SEMANTiCS marketplace showcasing solutions and products for the financial and automotive sector. During the opening ceremony of the conference, our CEO Hans-Christian Brockmann introduced our research project Linked Enterprise Services (LEDS) and joined afterwards the Fishbowl discussion on the subject Knowledge Graphs – The next frontier. Additionally, we gave talks in research and industry tracks: Marvin Frommhold, Linked Data Engineer at eccenca, talked about versioning of arbitrary RDF data and Dr Robert Isele, Head of Research, presented eccenca CorporateMemory - a solution for semantically integrated enterprise data lakes.
For eccenca, SEMANTiCS2016 has been a very successful event with interesting contacts and very positive impressions. We hope that SEMANTiCS conference will come back to Leipzig again within the next years!
