Autumn MC and WG Meeting: call for participation

Posted by & filed under Events.

The next WG meeting is scheduled in Riva del Garda (IT) on 17-18 October.

The meeting is about “Querying the Semantic Web” and through the meeting we would like to achieve two main goals: 1. Definition of open challenges in keyword search over structured databases, with particular reference to the querying process in the Semantic Web (by means of keynote talks and round table discussions); 2. Identification of research topics studied by research groups involved in KEYSTONE.

Even if the participation to the meeting is open and free, as usual, only a limited number of WG members can be supported in their expenses for travel and accommodation. The details about the meeting, eligible expenses, and the venue are available in the KEYSTONE website http://www.keystone-cost.eu/keystone/outreach/meetings/autumn-2014-mc-and-wg-meetings/
