AKSW internal group meeting @ Dessau

October 23, 2014 - 1:07 am by EdgardMarx - No comments »

Recently AKSW members were at the city of Dessau for an internal group meeting.

The meeting took place between 8th and 10th of October, in the modern university of architecture of Bauhaus were we also stayed hosted. Bauhaus is located in the city of Dessau, about one hour from Leipzig. Bauhaus operated from 1919 to 1933 and was famous for the approach to design that combined crafts and the fine arts. At that time the German term Bauhaus – literally “house of construction” – was understood as meaning “School of Building”. It seemed to be a perfect getaway and an awesome location for AKSWers meet and “build” together the future steps of the group.

Wednesday was spent mostly in smaller group discussions on various ongoing projects. Over the next two days the AKSW PhD students presented their achievements, current status and future plans of their PhD projects. During the meeting, we have the pleasure to receive various of AKSWers leaders and project managers as prof. Dr. Sören Auer, Dr. Jens Lehmann, prof. Dr. Thomas Riechert and Dr. Michael Martin. The heads of the AKSW gave their inputs and suggestions to the students in order to help them to improve, continue and or complete their PhDs. In addition, the current projects were also discussed so as to find possible synergies between them and to discuss further improvements and ideas.

However, we do find some time to enjoy the beautiful city of Dessau and learn a little bit more about the history of this wonderful city.

Overall, it was a productive and recreational trip not only to keep a track of each students progress but also to help them to improve their work. We are all thankful to prof. Dr. Thomas Riechert who was the main responsible for organizing this amazing meeting.

It has been a while but that moment has arrived again. We are happy to announce a new release of the LIMES framework. This version implements novel geo-spatial measures (e.g., geographic mean) as well as string similarity measures (jaro, jaro-winkler, etc.). Moreover, we fixed some minor bugs (thanks for the bug reports). The final release (i.e., version 0.7) will soon be available so stay tuned!
