Many of us attended the 16th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) which was held on October 21-25 in the beautiful city of Vienna, and it turned out to be a very successful conference for us! Our contributions to the conference were in the co-organization of workshops (WOP 2017 and VOILA 2017), a tutorial (“Semantic Data Management in Practice”) and two tracks of the Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative, as well as two research papers (“Alignment Cubes: Towards Interactive Visual Exploration and Evaluation of Multiple Ontology Alignments” and “A Formal Framework for Comparing Linked Data Fragments”), a demo, and a poster. In addition to successfully running our aforementioned sub-events and presenting our research, we won a couple of awards:

  • Valentina won a best reviewer award for the main research track,
  • Olaf won the peoples’ choice best poster award, and
  • together with Ian Letter and Jorge Pérez (both from the Universidad de Chile), Olaf also won the best research paper award! You may want to read a brief description of this work.



Semantic Web research at LiU

The Semantic Web is an extension of the traditional Web towards having machine processable content and interlinked data on the Web, with well-described semantics.

Ideally we would be able to view the whole Web as a large set of interconnected databases, which can be queried and browsed by software systems as well as human users. Semantic Web research at LiU includes areas such as ontologies and ontology engineering (ontology design patterns, ontology alignment and completion, ontology and alignment visualisation), graph databases and triple stores, querying the Web of data, RDF stream processing and complex event processing, as well as applications of these technologies in a number of fields, including open data, security, decision support systems, e-health and e-science, etc.

The aim of this blog is to report on the activities of our research group, and make results accessible to a wider audience.
