Call for Proposals: SWIB19 - 11th Semantic Web in Libraries Conference
25.11. - 27.11.2019, Hamburg, Germany

Submission Deadline (extended): 26 May 2019

SWIB conference (Semantic Web in Libraries) is an annual conference,
being held for the 11th time, focusing on Linked Open Data (LOD) in
libraries and related organizations. It is well established as an event
where IT staff, developers, librarians, and researchers from over the
world meet and mingle and learn from each other. The topics of talks and
workshops at SWIB revolve around opening data, linking data and creating
tools and software for LOD production scenarios. These areas of focus
are supplemented by presentations of research projects in applied
sciences, industry applications, and LOD activities in other areas.

As usual, SWIB19 will be organized by the ZBW - German National Library
of Economics / Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and the North
Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz). The conference language
is English.

Would you like to share your experiences working on an interesting
service, research topic or project – not just what you did, but also how
you did it? Would you like to offer a hands-on pre-conference tutorial
or workshop on the afternoon of November 25?

We appreciate proposals on the following or related topics:
