ISWC metadata

As it has been tradition in the previous years, all metadata of the conference will be made publicly available.

This is both an announcement of a preliminary release of the ISWC2017 metadata and a call for action to apply your own tools for visualising or exploring the ISWC2017 conference data. A preliminary dump is already available at the link below. In order to put this data to use, we invite submissions of apps/tools which visualise and/or support exploration of the data. The ISWC2017 organisation team intends to link to your applications from the ISWC2017 Website and provide some publicity, so this provides an opportunity to showcase your RDF/Linked Data visualization tool to the ISWC2017 audience. Should you intend to submit or have any questions, please get in touch with the ISWC2017 metadata chairs.

Note: the current data is a preliminary release only, with the aim to facilitate the test of exploration tools. It will be completed and further polished throughout the next weeks. The finalised metadata will be published closer to the conference and integrated in
