The 2nd digital edition of SEMIC, the annual semantic interoperability conference, will take place fully online on 8 December 2021 via the dedicated website https://semic2021.eu/. The event, organised by the ISA² Programme of the European Commission in collaboration with the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU, will digitally bring together policy makers, IT practitioners and researchers interested in topics related to semantic interoperability for public administrations. This year's theme is ‘Human Centric Data Spaces - Powered by Interoperability’.
Over the last year, different sectors have announced preparatory work on data spaces, aiming to foster a single market for data. Semantic interoperability is the key enabler for data to flow within the EU and across sectors. SEMIC2021 will therefore bring together stakeholders and practitioners across domains to discuss how data sets can be exchanged between data providers and consumers while protecting EU ethical and legal aspects, ensuring human centricity, and using emerging technologies. Participants can learn about examples of cross-border data exchange between public administrations and find out about the potential of emerging technologies.
Parallel sessions, illustrated by case studies, will be held on topics such as:
- Methods and tools for creating semantic assets,
- How interoperability and user centricity can help exchange complex datasets across Member States within and across sectors,
- Usage of emerging data technologies in ethical manner to enhance public services,
- Good practices on semantic interoperability and data tools.
In anticipation, please have a look at the teaser video of SEMIC 2021!
