13th Semantic Web in Libraries Conference - now!

Please note: Registration is necessary before participating in the discussions.


We plan to upload recordings of the SWIB21 sessions.

 

 

SWIB conference (Semantic Web in Libraries) is an annual conference, being held for the 13th time.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we cannot be sure that travelling and meeting face-to-face will be possible for everybody in the community by November. Therefore, we have decided to hold SWIB21 the second time on the web. This will be 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 29 November - 03 December in the time from UTC 14:00 until 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, SWIB21 will be organized by the ZBW - Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and the North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz). The conference language is English.
