The Web of Data Practitioners Days is a new application-oriented event for Semantic Web practitioners and interested newcomers. It is intended to communicate the results of the past years‘ semantic systems activities to a broader audience, especially to practitioners from industry and academia. In a cooperative effort, four major Austrian institutions, which have actively been conducting research in that area throughout the past years, will set the stage for this event.

Participants will have the opportunity to see how semantic technologies may improve and enhance existing Web-based software systems and how the Web of Data will provide a completely new paradigm of managing globally interlinked information. As a result, attendees will get a better idea about the practical benefits of semantic solutions and researchers obtain valuable feedback for further research directions aiming at productivity and applicability of the existing technology for real-world use cases.
