Event date:
Published on: 07/07/2014

August 25-29, 2014, Beijing, China


Since the vision of Semantic Web was proposed in 2001, it has attracted huge attention from both academic and industrial communities. After a decade of development, the theoretical research and tool support have achieved many exciting results.

Despite the success, the industrial uptake of semantic technologies is slower than people had expected.

Collocated with The 10th International Conference on Semantics, Knowledge & Grids (SKG'14), SWiP'14 is a one-day workshop that provides a venue to present and discuss benefits, limitations, challenges and solution for the adoption of semantic technologies in various application domains.

SWiP'14 will provide an open and stimulating environment that brings together researchers, developers and users from various fields to discuss goals, real-world experiences and prospects of the use of Semantic Web technologies in practice.
