DBpedia Day 2018

SEMANTiCS 2018 will host the 12th edition of the DBpedia Community Meeting on the first day of the conference (10th of September) 

 Community Meeting

DBpedia is an international crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons and to make this information available on the Web as Linked Open Data.

More than 150 DBpedia enthusiasts joined the 10th Community Meeting, which was co-located with the SEMANTiCS 2016 in Amsterdam. The success of the last community meetings and the increasing number of specific language chapters proves that the DBpedia community is constantly growing and gaining more and more significance and impact in the Semantic Web Community.
