The 3rd Workshop, September 2019

On September 9, 2019, SEMANTiCS will host the third workshop. We will give an overview of the initiative for the development of an Open Research Knowledge Graph (, which captures semantically structured information about scientific contributions to facilitate novel forms of exploration and assistance in scholarly communication. Following the previous two workshops, we will give an overview of the latest ORKG service developments, hear about related work in lightning talks, and advance specific topics related to the digitalization of scholarly communication in workgroups. The preliminary timetable is as follows:

The 2nd Workshop, November 2018

On November 22, 2018, TIB will host the second workshop as a post-conference event immediately following the 13th International Conference on Data Integration in the Life Sciences 2018.

The 1st Workshop, March 2018

The first workshop was held on March 20, 2018, at TIB, Hannover. Attended by 40 participants, the workshop was a first opportunity to provide an overview of the research knowledge graph vision; for TIB to provide position statements on a possible architecture, user interface, and the conceptualization of core concepts; actively advance these aspects in parallel workgroups; as well as collect thoughts on knowledge graphs for research from external participants.
