The IoT semantic interoperability event will discuss practical issues about ontology development/matching and sensor data collection/processing and address semantics interoperability for distributed sensor networks and big data.
The targeted audience of this event are participants with knowledge on ontologies, semantic web technologies, data modeling and knowledge engineering; however this interoperability event is open to all public who is interested in discovering semantic interoperability. The event will not provide only best practices and tutorial but will also organize interoperability exercises where participants are expected to bring their own ontologies and information and will have to possibility to be compared to state of the art techniques to measure their level of interoperability.
