LIDER Roadmapping Workshop

The 4th LIDER Roadmapping Workshop will take place on September 2nd. The goal of the roadmapping workshop is to gather input from experts and stakeholders in the area of content analytics as a basis to define a European R&D and Innovation Roadmap for the European Commission that will help the EC to prioritize future R&D activities and thus will have a direct impact on the calls that the EC will issue in the context of H2020.

The main objective will be to identify areas and tasks in content analytics where Linked Data & semantic technologies can contribute. The roadmapping workshop will be a part of the MLODE Workshop and thus collocated with the SEMANTICS Conference. The roadmapping workshop will feature a number of talks by industrial players in the field of content analytics and human language technologies as well as a final discussion.

The 3rd LIDER Roadmapping Workshop will be preceded by a hackathon on the 1st of September.

The event is supported by the LIDER EU project, the MultilingualWeb community, the NLP2RDF project as well as the DBpedia Project.


The LIDER Roadmapping Workshop will take place at the Paulinum ( in Felix-Klein Hörsaal/Auditorium (FKH 502).
