The workshops for SEMANTiCS 2015 will be held before and after the core conference programme at September 15th and 18th. We recommend attending SEMANTiCS main conference as well.
All workshops are free and there is no cost for attending. Coffee and some cakes are included. On campus there are several possibilities to have lunch during the break on own costs. Free registration is mandatory as space is very limited

In recent years, Semantic Web technologies have strengthened their position in the areas of data and knowledge management. Standards for organizing and querying semantic information, such as RDF(S) and SPARQL are adopted by large academic communities, while corporate vendors adopt semantic technologies to organize, expose, exchange and retrieve their datasets as Linked Data.
