About the conference

The SEMANTiCS Conference is a really great place to come and look for inspiration, implementation, partners, for ideas and for business models.

This is the definite peak of what you can get with regards to semantics if you look at the keynote speakers, if you look at the topics that are placed (…) it is very important to have real use cases, real brands, real issues you can relate to to get deeper into the topic

Florian Kondert

digital director at Zukunftsinstitut

The level of conversation, the level of expectation of the participants and the level of sophistication of what they’re presenting is really astounding.

Jeanne Holm

former Chief Knowledge Architect and Digital Strategy Manager at NASA

SEMANTiCS for me means being able to learn about our European Partners here. Me getting to know them (…) is very important: It’s the socialization and network which is very important to us – to know the people we’re working with.

David Arnold

Former CEO of Capsenta

The aspect I enjoy the most about this conference is the fact that it is tied to industry and you can meet so many different people that work in different areas and that wouldn’t happen normally at an academic conference… it’s the fact that the use cases people talk about and have to do with are very real.
