The full-day SemStats 2013 workshop will be held as part of the workshop program associated with ISWC 2013 (the 12th International Semantic Web Conference).
The goal of this workshop is to explore and strengthen the relationship between the Semantic Web and statistical communities, to provide better access to the data held by statistical offices. It will focus on ways in which statisticians can use Semantic Web technologies and standards in order to formalise, publish, document and link their data and metadata.
A range of international experts in regard to Semantic Web, including its application to official statistics, will participate in the workshop.
The workshop will also feature a challenge based on Census Data published on the web or provided by Statistical Institutes. It is expected that data from Australia, New Zealand, France, Ireland, the U.S. and Spain at least will be available.
The Call for Papers for the workshop is open until 12 July 2013.
Registration to participate in the Workshop is via the registration page for ISWC 2013
