  7. 7. Semantic Meetup Strategy •  Establish links with the largest semantic meetup groups –  Attending and offering to give talks –  Maybe via Vienna SW meetup •  Use meetups to disseminate information on STI2 and attract new members. •  [Within Europe we could think about running our own meetup groups in locations complementary to the existing set].www.sti2.org 5/12/2007 - Vienna
  8. 8. Conferences •  SemTech –  Industrial focus –  1000 attendees –  Running collaboration (e.g. European Day in 2009) •  ESTC sold to WebMediaBrands •  IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing –  2009 several STI representatives organized a special session –  Led to joint summer school •  Others???www.sti2.org 5/12/2007 - Vienna
  9. 9. Conference Strategy •  John Davies and Alex Wahler remain on the steering committee for ESTC –  Conduit for communication STI2 <-> WebMediaBrands. •  STI2 should continue to look for opportunities to disseminate EU project research within the US- based SemTech conference •  We should remaining contact with the organizers of ICSC through the co-organisation of the summer school.www.sti2.org 5/12/2007 - Vienna
  10. 10. Education Background •  Joint organisation with IEEE on Berkeley summer school since 2009 •  collaboration involves a sharing of tutors and keynotes and also a financial agreement Strategy •  Continue Berkeley summer school •  Offer to facilitate sharing of post-grad teaching burden for US academicswww.sti2.org 5/12/2007 - Vienna
  11. 11. Commercial Semantic Web •  EU –  Money -> research •  US –  Research -> money Strategy We consider using our contacts within WebMediaBrands to create a platform for EU projects to be exploited in the US. We also consider how small US companies could have a ‘European face’ through STI2.www.sti2.org 5/12/2007 - Vienna
  12. 12. Standardisation •  Historically W3C a venue for US <-> EU collaboration –  E.g. SAWSDL, USDL incubator Strategy STI2 had a number of conversations with the W3C Semantic Web Activity lead Ivan Herman but this has not been active lately. Previously, we had discussed an agreement where we each become a member of each other’s organization. We should reconsider this.www.sti2.org 5/12/2007 - Vienna
