Industry Track


The industry track seeks to present the state of adoption of semantic technologies in industrial applications. These technologies may be used in specific industries (e.g., media, financials, telecommunications, healthcare, life sciences, government, intelligence, public sector etc.) and in different application areas (e.g., business intelligence, smart cities, analytics, search, content management, knowledge management, recommendation systems, data integration, automotive etc.).

We welcome contributions about stories of adoption of semantic technologies and knowledge graphs in real projects, especially by emphasizing how these technologies have succeeded in creating value for customers. You can also associate presentations to a sponsorship and dimostrators stands.
Come and join us at the ESWC 2018 industry track to share your experience!
