3rd Workshop on Managing the Evolution and Preservation of the Data Web

This workshop targets one of the emerging and fundamental problems in the Semantic Web, specifically the preservation of evolving linked datasets. This topic is of particular relevance to ESWC since it raises awareness of the many research challenges for preserving and managing dynamic linked datasets. Fostering active usage of such evolving datasets requires further research advances on topics such as storage, synchronisation, change representation and querying over evolving graphs.

Apart from researchers and practitioners, the target audience comprises data publishers and consumers. Publishers will benefit from attending this workshop by learning about ways and best practices to publish their evolving datasets. Consumers benefit by being able to discuss their expectations, requirements and experiences with current systems for handling and processing changing datasets in efficient ways.

The third edition of this workshop is organised differently than the previous two. We invited a number of experts in the field of Linked Data and Data Evolution and Preservation in order to suggest and advise on different topics that our workshop should cover this year. In addition to focusing on the verticals of the workshop themes, we also aim to widen the audience by considering a broader view of interdisciplinary themes. Prof. Dr. Maria-Esther Vidal (Universidad Simón Bolívar, Fraunhofer IAIS) will give a keynote during the workshop Read more about 3rd Workshop on Managing the Evolution and Preservation of the Data Web

2nd Workshop on Managing the Evolution and Preservation of the Data Web

The 2nd Managing the Evolution and Preservation of the Data Web workshop targets one of the emerging and fundamental problems of the management and preservation of evolving (linked) datasets on the Data Web. Fostering active usage of such evolving datasets requires to address challenges such as change discovery, synchronisation, change representation but also storing and querying over evolving graphs. Further, the datasets are structured and represent real-world entities; thus, when managing and representing facts we need to take into consideration possible constraints that may hold. Another challenge is to determine the consequences that changes to one LOD dataset may have to other datasets linked to it. The distributed nature and the scale of LOD datasets furthermore makes archiving a headache.

The main goal of the workshop is to provide a venue for researchers and industry to interact and exchange use cases, challenges, ideas and initial solutions and to provide a platform for people to network and form collaborations.

Computer Science Conference for University of Bonn Students 2016

The 3nd Computer Science Conference for University of Bonn Students (CSCUBS) will be held on May 25, 2016 (Dies Academicus) at the University of Bonn. CSCUBS is organised by PhD- and MSc-Students and aims to promote research in computer science and scientific exchange among students. The participation of researchers and practitioners of the field is also encouraged. CSCUBS intends to provide the ability to connect with each other and engage in discussions about the participants' respective research and development, and also to establish opportunities for knowledge and technology sharing. Submissions to CSCUBS should describe new research or development related to Computer Science, including University projects, theses, outcomes of professional or leisure activities.

WDAqua learning week @WISS2015 - Web Intelligence Summer School

Sharing, connecting, managing, analyzing and understanding data on the Web will enable better services for citizens, communities and industry. However, turning web data into successful services for the public and private sector requires skilled web and data scientists, and it still requires further research. In order to teach and train researchers and to create exchange opportunities, the Web Intelligence community in Rhône-Alpes and Universität Bonn are bringing together experts on these aspects of the Web.

Doctoral College Workshop II 2015 (Seminar- St Etienne -- Bonn)

This seminar is the second of the SeReCo French German Doctoral College (CDFA/DFDK). This structured graduate program explores the synergy between the World Wide Web (WWW) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) domains of research focusing on semantic technologies to provide machines with the possibility to reason on the digital contents made available, and, on the other hand on the coordination technologies to provide machines with the possibility to coordinate and cooperate to offer added value services to users from the ever increasing set of deployed services. Their tight integration leads to innovations in computer science and application domains. Read more about Doctoral College Workshop II 2015 (Seminar- St Etienne -- Bonn)

Doctoral College Workshop 2015 (Seminar- St Etienne -- Bonn)

This seminar is initiation of the SeReCo French German Doctoral College (CDFA/DFDK). This structured graduate programme explores the synergy between the World Wide Web (WWW) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) domains of research focusing on semantic technologies to provide machines with the possibility to reason on the digital contents made available, and, on the other hand on the coordination technologies to provide machines with the possibility to coordinate and cooperate to offer added value services to users from the ever increasing set of deployed services. Their tight integration leads to innovations in computer science and application domains. Objectives

The scientific purpose of the seminar is to explore the spectrum of technologies related to semantics, reasoning and coordination in distributed and open environments (such as the Web) as developed in both laboratories.

The research works include the following topics:

  • Semantic data modeling: Linked data, Ontologies, Annotations,
  • Reasoning on the Semantic Web,
  • Knowledge extraction, knowledge modeling and knowledge integration,
  • Adaptive applications and coordination,
  • Management and protection of identity, privacy and confidentiality,
  • Multi-Agent-based modeling and programming of open and decentralized systems,
  • Coordination models and technologies,
  • Self-Organizing systems,
  • Context aware mobile applications (using mobile devices and sensors)

The aim of the seminar is also to create and foster a synergy into and within the research groups. Read more about Doctoral College Workshop 2015 (Seminar- St Etienne -- Bonn)
