Time to plan for the European Data Forum 2013 in Dublin. The yearly meeting place for industry, research, policy makers, and community initiatives to discuss the challenges and opportunities of (Big) Data in Europe. Free Registration for the European Data Forum 2013 is now open. EDF also invites to submit proposials on to be held presentations addressing fundamental technical, application, socio-economic and policy-related topics related to Big Data management and analytics.
About the EDF
EDF aims to bring together all stakeholders involved in the data value chain to exchange ideas and develop actionable roadmaps addressing these challenges and opportunities in order to strengthen the European data economy and its positioning worldwide. The roadmaps will be offered as a contribution to the definition of research, development, and policy activities at the level of the European Union institutions and those of its member states. This years edition of the EDF will be held in Dublin, Ireland on April 9-10, 2013. The program will consist of a mixture of presentations and networking sessions by industry, academics, policy makers, and community initiatives on topics ranging from research and technology development, to training and knowledge transfer, and commercialization. The EDF series is a joint activity of the EC FP7 projects BIG, LOD2, PlanetData, and TELEIOS, and is supported by the European Commission.

Best practice presentations then gave an insight into the diversity of application possibilities of Confluence and Jira, from project management via finding suitable suppliers to the implementation of knowledge management projects. The Semantic Web Company presented with PowerTagging for Confluence a brandnew addon for improved label management. The visitors were thrilled with the opportunity to optimize the search in Confluence, using semi-automatic annotation of wiki pages. In discussions it became clear that the demand for strong enterprise-wide search capabilities increases as companies have different systems (CMS, DMS, ERP) and content pools in use. The Semantic Web Company realized Enterprise Search and provides with the thesaurus-based approach not only a lightweight, fast knowledge model to be realized, but also comprehensive semantic search capabilities.
An open space for exchanging experiences with Confluence and Jira rounded off the event. Thank you very much at this point to Communardo for organising this great day and see you next year!
As in previous years i-SEMANTICS will offer its participants a unique platform either to present latest and leading edge developments or to catch up with the developments of most innovative IT technologies, metadata applications, data management trends and emerging market opportunities.

A new PoolParty Thesaurus Manager (PPT) release was presented at this year´s Semantic Technology & Business Conference in San Francisco: Version 3.1.0 is a major release offering lots of great new funcitionalities and improvements including auto-population of thesauri and linked data knowledge models.
The main new features are:
Autopopulation of Thesauri from DBpedia The Skossy functionality has been integrated into PPT. You can assign DBpedia categories to concepts and then autopopulate your thesaurus based on data from DBpedia.
Linked Data Based Synonym and Translation Service
You can add labels (pref, alt, hidden) to the concepts of your thesaurus based on suggestions for synonyms and translations provided by data from DBpedia.
ADMS Description for Projects
Metadata for PoolParty projects can now be published according to the Asset Description Metadata Schema (ADMS) developed by the joinup project of the European Union.
A new theme has been added based on the Windows GUI guidelines.
Andreas Koller from Semantic Web Company: “SemTechBiz 2012 was a great success for us, we had a lot of talks with people from various industries at our booth. Demonstrating how building knowledge models on top of linked data sources can improve text mining for example, attracted wide interest. We enjoyed the whole conference, the location and the support from the organization team.”
