Semantic Information Management: Future funding by EU and beyond

As the Semantic Web grows from its infant into its teenage years, its research challenges change, industry may better recognize how it may benefit from semantic technologies and yet there remain many research challenges to be met in order to grow them into technologies for all existing companies and for new companies that are still to be founded. This session wants to bridge between funders, industry and academics in order to present (parts of) the current funding situation as well as a panel discussion of what should be done in the future.

Session Organizers

  • Márta Nagy-Rothengass, Head of Unit at European Commission DG INFSO/E2
  • Steffen Staab, University of Koblenz-Landau
