The annual SEMANTiCS conference (formerly known as I-Semantics) is the meeting place for professionals who make semantic computing work, and understand its benefits and know its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts information managers, IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from organisations ranging from NPOs, public administrations to the largest companies in the world. Attendees learn from industry experts and top researchers about emerging trends and topics in semantic software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies and methodologies in knowledge modeling and text & data analytics. The SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse; attendees have responsibilities interlinking areas like knowledge management, technical documentation, e-commerce, big data analytics, enterprise search, document management, business intelligence, and enterprise vocabulary management.

SEMANTiCS 2014 continues a long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world to present best practices, panels, papers and posters to discuss semantic systems in birds-of-a-feather sessions and informal settings. SEMANTICS addresses problems common among information managers, software engineers, IT-architects and various specialist departments working to develop, implement and/or evaluate semantic software systems.

The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel discussions of important topics, and presentations by people who make things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues. The expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a long-term impact on their careers and organisations. These factors make SEMANTiCS the major industry related event for our community.

The following ‘horizontals’ (topics) and ‘verticals’ (industries) are mainly addressed:
