The KiWi Release Party

The KiWi team

On October 14 (2010), I travelled to Vienna, Austria to take part of the KiWi Release Party.

After more than 2 and half years of work, the KiWi platform 1.0 was officially released to the community. The event took place at Planetarium, an exciting space and quite inspiring. The space was properly made up by “KiWi” style, colors and flavors.

Impressions from ACM SAC 2010

The 25th ACM SAC conference was held in Sierre, Swiztherland, a very privileged area surrounded by the stunning Swiss Alps. Comparing to my previous attendance, it seems the number of attendees has decreased (maybe just an impression). On the other hand, the quality of works and the level of plenary discussion seem to be improved. Because the conference is multi-track, I could attend sessions of related areas to my current work such as data mining and semantic web.

The 7th edition of Summer School on Ontological Engineering and Semantic Web

From 5th to 11th of July, I participated of the 7th edition of Summer School on Ontological Engineering and Semantic Web in Cercedilla, Spain. We were 50 students (mostly in the 1st year of our PhD) confined in a residence surrounded by spectacular nature.

Every morning we had talks from the tutors and famed invited speakers such as Prof Stefan Decker and Peter Mika. After each talk, we had hands-on session to put in practice what we had learnt from early “lessons”. The quality of the tutors, head by Prof Enrico Motta, contributed a lot for the success of the school.
