Jelena Jovanovic, Nikola Milikic, and Filip Radulovic attended the Web of Data Practitioners Days 2008, that took place last week in Vienna, Austria. It was intended to communicate the results of the past years' semantic systems activities to a broader audience, especially to practitioners from industry and academia. Its main objective was to show how semantic technologies can improve and enhance existing Web-based software systems and how the Web of Data will provide a completely new paradigm of managing globally interlinked information.
The event was organized by four major Austrian institutions, University of Vienna, Joanneum Research, Johannes Kepler University of Linz, and Semantic Technology Institute from Innsbruck.
Many experts gave talks about the subject, among them Yves Raimond, Richard Cyganiak, Leo Saureman, Alan Dix, and others.
