iSemantics 2012 – First day, first impressions

Helmuth Nagy at iSemantics 2012

Semantic Web Company’s Gerd Zechmeister and Helmuth Nagy are in Graz those days, where i-Semantics, one of the largest conferences in Europe in the field of semantic systems and the Semantic Web, takes place. The first day was dominated by the raising presence of experts and visitors from Central and Eastern Europe. People from Poland or Russia find their way to Graz an benefit form Austria’s near location. Largely coming from academia, they seek for hands-on tools for the semantic web. Maybe PoolParty’s Academic & Educational License Program is exact what they are searching for.
