Catalogue of Services Workshop, 15 June back-to-back to SEMIC 2018


Registrations for the ISA² Workshop on Catalogues of Public Services have now closed.

On 15 June 2018, the ISA² Programme of the European Commission will host a workshop on Catalogues of Public Services back-to-back to the SEMIC Conference in SofiaBulgaria.

The workshop will offer a unique opportunity to present real-life implementations of catalogues of public services based on the Core Public Service Vocabulary Application Profile (CPSV-AP). It will also enable sharing interesting experiences and good practices on a series of topics, such as improving user experience for citizen and business portals, the need for interoperable semantic models and tools, and the upcoming challenges in this area.

The workshop invites Member State and European institutions representatives, semantic and open data experts, and academia to share their views on how public service delivery can benefit from the creation and exchange of public services information.

If you are interested in ongoing initiatives on interoperability in Europe, please join us at the SEMIC Conference and the Catalogue of Services workshop in Sofia (Bulgaria) on 14 and 15 June 2018.

Participation in the workshop is by invitation only. As places are limited, registration is mandatory.
