AKSW internal group meeting @ Dessau

Recently, AKSW members were at the city of Dessau for an internal group meeting.

The meeting took place between 8th and 10th of October, in the modern university of architecture of Bauhaus where most team members also stayed the nights. Bauhaus is located in the city of Dessau, about one hour from Leipzig. Bauhaus operated from 1919 to 1933 and was famous for the approach to design that combined crafts and the fine arts. At that time the German term Bauhaus ? literally ?house of construction? ? was understood as meaning ?School of Building?. It was a perfect getaway and an awesome location for AKSWers to meet and ?build? together the future steps of the group.

Wednesday was spent mostly in smaller group discussions on various ongoing projects. Over the next two days the AKSW PhD students presented their achievements, current status and future plans of their PhD projects. During the meeting, we had the pleasure to receive valuable feedback from AKSW leaders and project managers as Prof. Sören Auer, Dr. Jens Lehmann, Prof. Thomas Riechert and Dr. Michael Martin. The heads of AKSW gave their inputs and suggestions to the students in order to help them to improve, continue and or complete their PhDs. In addition, the current projects were also discussed so as to find possible synergies between them and to discuss further improvements and ideas.

However, we did find some time to enjoy the beautiful city of Dessau as well and learned a little bit more about the history of this wonderful city.

Overall, it was a productive and recreational trip not only to keep a track of each students progress but also to help them to improve their work. We are all thankful to Prof. Riechert and Dr. Lehmann who were responsible for organizing this amazing meeting.

LIMES Version 0.6 RC4

It has been a while but that moment has arrived again. We are happy to announce a new release of the LIMES framework. This version implements novel geo-spatial measures (e.g., geographic mean) as well as string similarity measures (jaro, jaro-winkler, etc.). Moreover, we fixed some minor bugs (thanks for the bug reports). The final release (i.e., version 0.7) will soon be available so stay tuned!

Axel

This year's SEMANTiCS Conference is being held in Leipzig


International Conference on Semantic Systems, taking place in September, will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2014


Already for the tenth time, SEMANTiCS Conferenz will be the hot spot of the ‘Semantic Web World’: While in prior years the venue for the event has been Graz or Vienna, this time Leipzig will host SEMANTiCS from September 1–5.


The conference which has attracted more than 250 people every year adresses interests and matters of users from industry and public administrations just as much as topics being focused by developers, researchers and consultants. According to the motto ‘Transfer / Engineering / Community’ numerous talks and round tables will highlight from a number of perspectives how applications based on linked data or text mining have been implemented or will be generated in the future for branches like pharma, media or automotive industry.


The event offers space for practitioners and vendors to talk about state-of-the-art technologies on the ‘market place’, whilst subject matter experts discuss about innovative methodologies, projects and their approaches in the course of domain- and theme-specific sessions. Presentations and scientific papers can be submitted under http://www.semantics.cc/open-calls/.


When: September 4–5, 2014 – SEMANTiCS Conference / co-located events from September 1, 2014
Where: Leipziger Kubus – Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ, Permoserstrasse 15, 04318 Leipzig, Germany (map view)
What: 10th International Conference on Semantic Systems
Who: University Leipzig | Institut for Applied Informatics e. V. & Semantic Web Company GmbH


JPEG 9 with lossless JPEG compression immediately available

The Independent JPEG Group (IJG) at the Leipzig Institute for Applied Informatics has released the new version of the software library „libjpeg“. This software library is the basis for the processing of images in the ubiquitous JPEG format and is used worldwide in a countless number of applications of software vendors and in the photographic industry.

It is available under a fee-free license with open source code. After 15 years of continuous development, the upgrade to the new version 9 enables for the first time an effective lossless image compression mode and thus offers end users and industrial adopters a high added value. The Code is ready for download at the IJG Development Site.

The Big Clean

The Big Clean is a free, 1-day conference that addresses the challenges associated with reuse of public sector data. The event rises to the occasion of teaching the members of public how to recycle public data and reuse it in the pursuit of their own goals, ranging from the use of data to power applications, drive societal changes and provide grounds for a data-driven journalism. The Big Clean is focused on three principal topics:


  • Screen-scraping: the skill of distilling data out of web pages and other poorly structured sources
  • Data refining: the techniques of transforming raw data into usable data
  • Data-driven journalism: the craft of telling stories with data

The event is jointly organized by the National Technical Libraryand members of the LOD2 project.
