Knowledge sharing and networking at the cross-section of research and business


SEMANTiCS conference is the leading European conference on Semantic Technologies and AI. Researchers, industry experts and business leaders can develop a thorough understanding of trends and application scenarios in the fields of Machine Learning, Data Science, Linked Data and Natural Language Processing.  The 16th edition will be hosted this year in Amsterdam.

About the conference

Semantics 2018 set the stage for the legal profession, what a great move! You could feel the pioneering spirit in all the presentations and discussions. Semantics and law are natural twins, so certainly more to come.

The SEMANTiCS conference offers a good mix of academic and industry participants, making it a great place for exchanging ideas and views on different topics. Its Job Fair offers industries the possibility to contact people with very interesting profiles.
