Talk at SMWcon 2022: ConfIDent - a SMW-powered platform for academic events

Julian Franken and Alexander Gesinn presented the ConfIDent platform and its technical infrastructure at the SMWcon 2022.

Abstract: ConfIDent aims to make the descriptive metadata on conferences and other formats of scientific events permanently accessible in a high quality through automated processes and scientific data curating. ConfIDent as a sustainable service addresses researchers who search for and publish information on scientific events, as well as universities, information infrastructure institutions, specialised societies, publishers and funding agencies.

In the first half of the talk, Julian will present the platform and its use cases. In the second half, Alexander will give some insights into the CI/CD lifecycle (Docker, Ansible, GitHub Actions, Gitlab CD).
