Semantic Meetup Amsterdam

After a first successful edition in Brussels, it's time for the rest of the Benelux. Amsterdam is up next! The informal talks and short speeches we had in Brussels were more fertile than we ever could have imagined. Seen how lively Semantic Technology is in the Netherlands, we expect this meetup to be even more promising...

We want to bring together everyone interested in Semantic Technology – as creators and/or users - to stimulate new developments. The focus is on bridging academic research to business applications, as we strongly believe this is the way to push Semantic Web technology up the Gartner curve.


Anyone wishing to present a topic – whether it be projects or technologies - can reserve the floor for a slot of 10 minutes.

After every topic we reserve some time for vivid discussions and bright feedback. The goal is to exchange thoughts in an informal atmosphere.

Sample topics can include
• Semantic Technology Business Applications
• Semantic Web Services
• Linked Data for Business
• Open Data for Government
• Data Integration using RDF
• Content Management using SKOS


All this will be in an informal and relaxed atmosphere, there'll tidbits and fresh Belgian beers. No need to bring anything but your fresh open minded spirit. PLEASE REPLY

    Interesting topics, nice to see new faces in the semweb community in amsterdam. There was plenty of discussion during the presentations but it would have be nicer if we had more time to mingle and the talks were kept to the 10 minute length. But overall nice job for a classic meetup. Good arrangements nice location.
