The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel discussions of important topics, and presentations by people who make things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues. The expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a long-term impact on their careers and organisations. These factors make SEMANTiCS the major event for our community bridging between research, industry and public administration.
