The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) is the premier international forum where Semantic Web / Linked Data researchers, practitioners, and industry specialists come together to discuss, advance, and shape the future of semantic technologies on the web, within enterprises and in the context of the public institution.
We are very pleased to announce that we got a paper accepted at ISWC 2017 for presentation at the main conference. Additionally, we also had a Demo paper accepted as well.

The audience displayed enthusiasm during the demonstration appreciating the work and asking questions regarding the future of SANSA, technical details and possible synergy with industrial partners and projects. Gezim Sejdiu and Jens Lehmann, who were presenting the demo, were talking 3+ hours non-stop (without even time to eat 😉 ).
ISWC17 was a great venue to meet the community, create new connections, talk about current research challenges, share ideas and settle new collaborations.
