Five AKSW Papers at ESWC 2014
Hello World! We are very pleased to announce that five of our papers were accepted for presentation at ESWC 2014. These papers range from natural-language processing to the acquisition of temporal data. In more detail, we will present the following papers:

  • NLP Data Cleansing Based on Linguistic Ontology Constraints (Dimitris Kontokostas, Martin Brummer, Sebastian Hellmann, Jens Lehmann and Lazaros Ioannidis)
  • Unsupervised Link Discovery Through Knowledge Base Repair (Axel-Cyrille Ngonga Ngomo, Mohamed Sherif and Klaus Lyko)
  • conTEXT ? Lightweight Text Analytics using Linked Data (Ali Khalili, Sören Auer and Axel-Cyrille Ngonga Ngomo)
  • HiBISCuS: Hypergraph-Based Source Selection for SPARQL Endpoint Federation (Muhammad Saleem and Axel-Cyrille Ngonga Ngomo)
  • Hybrid Acquisition of Temporal Scopes for RDF Data (Anisa Rula, Matteo Palmonari, Axel-Cyrille Ngonga Ngomo, Daniel Gerber, Jens Lehmann and Lorenz Bühmann)
Come over to ESWC and enjoy the talks. More information on these publications at http://aksw.org/Publications. Cheers, Axel on behalf of AKSW

AKSW Colloquium ?Current semantic web initiatives in the Netherlands? on Friday, March 14, Room P901

Current semantic web initiatives in the Netherlands: Heritage & Location, PiLOD 2.0

On Friday, March 14, at 10.00 a.m. in room P901, visiting researchers Tine van Nierop and Rein van ?t Veer from the E&L will discuss, amongst several other semantic web initiatives in the Netherlands, two different projects: Heritage & Location (www.erfgoedenlocatie.nl) and PiLOD 2.0 (www.pilod.nl). Heritage & Location assembles linked geospatial data from all possible heritage institutions and discloses it in geotemporal semantic applications. PiLOD (Platform implementation Linked Open Data) is a sector-independent initiative for any institution or individual wanting to explore the possibilities of the semantic web.

Welcome to the Website of the Institute for Applied Informatics (InfAI) e.V.



Founded in 2006, the InfAI – Institute for Applied Informatics e.V. – pursues the promotion of science and research in the areas of computer science and business computing for the public good. The InfAI is a recognized adjunct institute of the University of Leipzig.


These pages contain information about the institute and its research areas, projects and members. If you would like to visit us, a map to our headquarters can be found here.


We look forward to meet you!

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.

INFORMATICS 2010 – The 40th Annual Conference of the Society for Computer Science in Leipzig

The 40th Annual Conference of the Society for Computer Science (GI) takes place from 27th September until 2nd October 2010 in Leipzig. Workshops, panels and other events will be held from Tuesday, 28th September 2010, until Thursday, 30th September 2010. Tutorials as well as the graduate programme will complement this conference on Monday and Friday.


Experts from science and industry will give a thorough overview on the most important new trends around the conference's topic of “Service Science – New Perspectives for Computer Science”. The focus will be on the „E-Humanities“ as a link between applied informatics and the humanities. The highlight on Wednesday, 29th September 2010, will be the Computer Science Day with invited talks on the conference's topic. Likewise, the 100th birthday of Konrad Zuse, the co-inventor of the first modern computer, will be honoured through talks and an exhibition.


Deadlines:
