COLINDA – Conference Linked Data for Research 2.0

COLINDA - COnference LINked DAta


Straight on time,  i would say,  couple of days before the  end of the world 🙂 on December 13th 2012, I succeeded to publish a Beta version of COLINDA. Currently, COLINDA contains only around 6000 different conferences ehic date up to 2012. Around 25000 conference are about to come. Also a lookup service and a spotlight service for conference detectiois are going to be online most probably until March 2013. This Linked Data set is connected to GeoNames and its primary usage is as lookup service for mining tasks in scientific context. I hope that COLINDA will also find some other appliances in the community. At the end it is important to mention that COLINDA has been also accepted into the LOD family …

I-Know & I-Semantics 2011


I spent last two days at I-Know & I-Semantics conference in Graz.  Unfortunately  yesterday  i  could make it very late to the social event. I met also some people from Science 2.0, Semantic Desktop area and had some interesting discussions.

Treating Social Media with Semantic Web technologies and Linked Data  seems to be in trend. Looking forward to read some proceedings on weekend and try out some proof of concepts for Research 2.0 o have in mind using the Web2Py…

The student i mentored presented our common paper @ RDSP Track:
