General information about Semantic Days

Semantic Days is an annual conference that has become a meeting place for industrial use of Semantic Web technologies, with substantial contributions from research institutes, universities and government agencies alike. Under this year’s main theme; Business intelligence (BI) and Applied Semantics, focus will be on how semantic technologies provide the foundation for business intelligence and analytics applications. In addition, how sensibly applied semantics can help companies access THE RIGHT INFORMATION, at THE RIGHT TIME, and at THE RIGHT GRANULARITY. We will have presentations from persons like:
