The International Semantic Web Research School (ISWS) is a full immersion, super intensive one-week experience including lectures and keynotes from outstanding speakers, a “learning by doing” teamwork program on open research problems, under the guidance of the best scientists in the field, with whom you will co-author a white paper of high potential impact. ISWS means networking and becoming friends with your peers as well as senior scientists, and having lots of fun with them. At ISWS we shape the future generation of semantic web researchers with creativity, methodology, fun and rigour.
ISWS provides a perfect experience for young scientists and researchers, working in both academia and industry, who want to learn about cutting edge technologies and novel research achievements at the crossing point between Artificial Intelligence and the Semantic Web.. The school inherits the successful pedagogic principles and the lessons learned from previous experiences and is a prominent reference school for the best young researchers, PhD, and master students of the Semantic Web community.
ISWS takes place in the beautiful location of Bertinoro, a small village near Bologna in Italy and relies on the organisation of its directors Valentina Presutti from University of Bologna and Harald Sack from FIZ Karlsruhe and KIT. ISWS is focused on research and its program includes lectures, invited talks, poster sessions, team working, and an exciting social program. All tutors and speakers of the school are renowned members of the Semantic Web community and beyond. Students work very hard for a whole week and experience all main activities that a researcher faces during her/his career such as team working, problem and state of the art analysis, development of novel methods, writing of research articles and reports, presenting a research result, and also defending a thesis. ISWS combines the format of a research camp with lectures and keynote talks. To facilitate an early exchange of ideas and mentoring opportunity, a poster session will also take place, where attendees will have the chance to present their work and obtain feedback on their research.
The school is an exceptional opportunity for networking: all tutors stay and constantly interact with the students for the whole duration of the school. The result is that participants, typically at an early career stage, thanks to the school, build a rich social and professional network that span from junior to highly known scientists. Although ISWS features lectures and keynotes, most of the time is devoted to team-working with the tutors for developing research. Students form teams and focus on a research problem for which they study a solution under the methodological guidance of highly expert tutors. The program also introduces competition among students, as prizes are awarded at the end of the week.
ISWS is organised so that students have lots of fun during social activities and free time. They leave the school with great memories and satisfaction, and by having met many new good friends.
Participating at ISWS 2022 means to benefit from formal and practical sessions as well as from informal and social interactions with established researchers and the other participants in the school.
