During the SEMANTiCS 2016 in Leipzig, Sep 12-15, the DBpedia community will get together on the 15th of September for the 7th edition of the DBpedia Community Meeting.
After years of discussion, the DBpedia community has finally found consensus on how to step into the future. During this meeting, we will come together to celebrate this achievement and also discuss and hold a vote to fill the DBpedia Association with life. Other subjects will reflect the efforts of the DBpedia community on a general Public Data Infrastructure for a large, multilingual, Semantic Knowledge Graph. In addition, there will be a showcase session on current developments and a DBpedia Dev session about technical issues and challenges in DBpedia as well as hands-on tutorials for DBpedia newbies.
Following our successful meetings in Europe & US our next DBpedia meeting will be held at The Hague on February 12th (with welcome reception by TNO on 11th), hosted by the National Library of the Netherlands.
After 4 successful meetings in Europe, we will cross the Atlantic for the next one: we are happy to announce that the 5th DBpedia meeting will be held at Stanford University, Palo Alto, on November 5th 2015.
Please read below on different ways you can participate. We are looking forward to meeting all the US-based DBpedia enthusiasts in person.
The event will feature talks from Yahoo!, IBM Watson, Blippar, Netflix and Stanford amongst others.
The DBpedia Project in 2014: from a hosted data set to a public data infrastructure for the Web of Data. As the DBpedia community has grown extensively, we think that the time has come to get everybody in one large room and meet. We hope to get together three major groups involved in DBpedia: the DBpedia developers and maintainers, the communities of the individual DBpedia language chapters, and, of course, the DBpedia users. The meeting will be held at VU Amsterdam on Jan 30th and is co-located with the PiLOD 2.0 meeting one day earlier.
