We partook in the organization of the Semantics and Media Workshop at the University of Mainz, where Axel is a Research Fellow. The aim of the workshop was to bring practitioners and research all around media and semantics together and to discuss the application of semantic technologies to achieve media representation, retrieval and convergence. The workshop took place from the 14th to the 15th and attracted four dozen practitioners and researchers from multiple areas such as publishing, semantic web, information retrieval and classification as well as digital humanities. Results from our research projects LOD2 and SCMS were received with great interest by the participants. The presentations (incl. Sören’s) will be available here soon. Furthermore, the talks will be published asap.
