The 12th International Semantic Web Conference

Venue: Sydney, Australia
From 21/10/2013 to 25/10/2013

The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), successor of the Semantic Web Working Symposium, will take place for the twelfth year, in Sydney, Australia, in late October.

ISWC is a meeting place for specialists in artificial intelligence, databases, natural language process, and information retrieval. The conference aims to help development and use of new technologies to access, interpret and use information on the web.

Keynotes and workshops

This year's three keynotes will be given by Jane Hunter, who heads the eResearch Lab at the University of Queensland, Australia, Google Fellow Ramanathan Guha and by Peter Fox, director Information Technology and Web Science at the US Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The conference programme lists 17 workshops, including on Semantic Statistics (SemStats 2013), Scalable Semantic Web Knowledge Base Systems (SSWS2013) and Linked Data for Information Extraction (LD4IE). These workshops involve universities and researchers from all over the world, including many based in Europe. The ISWC program further includes tutorials, poster sessions and practical demonstrations.

Before registering, attendees are advised to check if they require a visa. Citizens of most countries of Europe need a visa to enter Australia. Registration fees range from 150 Australian dollar (about 105 euro) for one day to 1090 AUD (about 766 euro) for complete access.
