Lehigh to host the Fourteenth International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) in October, 2015
Lehigh was awarded its competitive bid to host the Fourteenth International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) in October, 2015. ISWC is the leading conference in the Semantic Web area, which focuses on the integration and understanding of diverse data, especially data in graph-based formats. Prof. Jeff Heflin, who led the bid team, is intimately familiar with the conference, having served on four ISWC organizing committees over the last decade. ISWC is an annual conference that typically rotates between Europe, North America, and Asia. Previous locations include Sydney, Australia; Boston, MA; Bonn, Germany and Shanghai, China. Lehigh is looking forward to hosting the conference, and showing the international Semantic Web research community the best that Lehigh and Bethlehem has to offer.
