In addition, we organised the first HOBBIT community meeting. Many thanks to all who participated. Get involved in the project by going here. Our survey pertaining to benchmarking is still open and we’d love to have your feedback on what you would want benchmarking Linked Data to look like.

We also presented  three research projects, i.e., HOBBIT, QAMEL and DIESEL during the EU networking sessions. Many thanks for the fruitful discussions and ideas.

Finally, we thank all the systems which participated to QALD-6 and OKE and made these challenges so interesting. Little perk: We are still to find a system to beat CETUS at the OKE challenge 🙂

FYI, a full list of accepted conference papers can be found here.
