Semantic Web In Use at ISWC2009

ISWC2008 isn’t upon us just yet, but already the preparations for ISWC2009 are under way. I’m pleased to say that I’ll be serving as co-chair of the Semantic Web In Use track alongside Lee Feigenbaum.

In my experience the ISWC series has been growing steadily in strength year on year and, while I’m inevitably biased, last year’s conference did seem a watershed moment for the series and the Semantic Web as a whole. There was a tangible energy in the air that suggested the Semantic Web was no longer just a vision, but both real and inevitable. It will be interesting to see in Karlsruhe how things are shaping up one year on. I can only speculate about where we’ll be at by autumn 2009, but I’m very much looking forward to finding out.
