SWIB22 – 14th Semantic Web in Libraries Conference

28 November – 02 December 2022, online

Call for Proposals

Submission Deadline: 27 June 2022

SWIB conference (Semantic Web in Libraries) is an annual conference, being held for the 14th time.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we cannot be sure that by November travelling and meeting face-to-face will be possible for everybody in the community. Therefore, we have decided to hold SWIB22 online for the third time. This will offer everybody an opportunity to easily participate from all over the world.

Taking into account the different time zones of the participants, we plan to carry out the conference during the week of 28 November – 02 December, daily from UTC 14:00 to 16:30.

SWIB focuses on Linked Open Data (LOD) in libraries and related organizations. It is well established as an event where IT staff, developers, librarians, and researchers from all over the world meet and mingle and learn from each other. The topics of talks and workshops at SWIB revolve around opening data, linking data and creating tools and software for LOD production scenarios. These areas of focus are supplemented by presentations of research projects in applied sciences, industry applications, and LOD activities in other areas.

As usual, SWIB22 will be organized by ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and the North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz). The conference language is English.

For this SWIB rendition we adjusted the formats to the online environment:
