ESWC Extended Semantic Web Conference 2016 is one of the major venue for discussing the latest scientific results and technologies around semantic technologies. Our members have actively participated in 13th ESWC 2016, which took place in Crete, Greece from May 29th to June 2nd.
We are very pleased to report that:
Two papers from our group were accepted for presentation as full research papers @ESWC16

Prof. Jens Lehmann took part in the two day HOBBIT project plenary which started the last day of the ESWC conference. HOBBIT deals with Big Linked Data benchmarks and at the meeting 8 different datasets were discussed along with the HOBBIT benchmarking platform and HOBBIT association. SDA will specifically focus on question answering and faceted browsing benchmarks inside of the project. Already during ESWC, there was a dedicated HOBBIT event in which requirements for benchmarks and the platform were discussed.
