Call for Participation

After the big success of the Conference „Semantic Web in Libraries“ (SWIB09) in November 2009, the North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz), Cologne and the German National Library of Economics (ZBW) – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, Kiel and Hamburg, plan a second Conference on this topic to take place on 29./30. November 2010. As with SWIB09 the venue for SWIB10 will be Cologne.

As in the previous year, we want to show on the one hand the political, strategic and legal framework, on the other hand we would like to present Semantic Web / Linked Data projects in the world of libraries.

To complete our program, we are looking for contributions especially on the following subjects

Are you interested in giving a talk on one of these topics? Do you know of an interesting project, that could be introduced on the Conference?

We would like to receive feedback and ideas (if possible with a short abstract/expose) until 13th June 2010.

Please contact either
