10th International Conference on Semantic Systems (formerly known as
Leipzig, Germany, September 4-5, 2014
Towards Engineering of Information Machines - We believe that semantic
technologies are mature enough to dare the jump from research to
engineering. We would like to invite you to Leipzig, Germany to explore
with us best practices in engineering semantic systems.

The annual SEMANTiCS conference (formerly known as I-Semantics) is the
meeting place for professionals who make semantic computing work and
understand the benefits and discuss how to overcome 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 very diverse; attendees have
responsibilities in a range of areas, including knowledge management,
technical documentation, e-commerce, big data analytics, enterprise
search, document management, business intelligence, and enterprise
SEMANTiCS 2014 in Leipzig continues our long tradition of bringing
together colleagues from around the world to present papers, panels,
exhibitions and posters, to discuss best practices of semantic systems
in birds-of-a-feather sessions and exchange knowledge further in
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
The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel
discussions of important topics, and presentations by people who are
ambitious to make information machines 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 premiere event for our community. The
following 'horizontals' (topics) and 'verticals' (industries) are mainly
* Business Models, Governance & Data Strategies
* Knowledge Discovery & Intelligent Search
* Data Integration & Enterprise Linked Data
* Big Data & Text Analytics
* Data Portals & Knowledge Visualisation
* Document Management & Content Management
* Terminology, Thesaurus & Ontology Management
* Industry & Engineering
* Life Sciences & Health Care
* Public Administration
* Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums (GLAM)
* Media, Publishing & Advertising
* Financial Industry
We encourage participants to submit proposals for workshops, thematic
focus and special programmes and events in contacting anyone from the
SEMANTiCS Organising Committee:
Call for Industry Presentations and Research Papers as well Posters and
Demos will be announced at www.semantics.cc <http://www.semantics.cc> soon.
Transfer: Research and experts meet industry, industry meets experts and
research. SEMANTiCS is the place to exchange (project) ideas based on
best practices and to learn more about the various perspectives one can
have on probably the most valuable resources of our days: data &
Engineering: Software providers, developers and IT-architects meet
research and (potential) users from industry. SEMANTiCS is the place to
dive deep into semantic web and linked data technologies.
Community: Make new friends and renew old acquaintances. SEMANTiCS is
the meeting place to discuss and to initiate new projects, to extend
ongoing activities, and to showcase the latest developments.
On behalf of all the people organizing SEMANTiCS 2014, we hope to see
you in September in Leipzig,
