Workshop on
Discovering Meaning On the Go in
Large Heterogeneous Data 2012

Held at
The 11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2012)
11th/12th November, 2012
Boston, USA

Workshop Overview

This workshop is designed to bring together people from different fields working in the area of dynamic matching, interpretation, and integration of heterogeneous data, so that ideas, techniques and problems can be shared and discussed in a broad context. A key part of this workshop is bring together those from industry as well as those from academia.

In order to interact successfully in an open and heterogeneous environment, being able to dynamically and adaptively integrate data from other systems “on the go” is necessary. This may not be a precise process but a matter of finding a good enough understanding to allow interaction to proceed successfully. With the advent of the Web, there are massive amounts of information available online that can assist in this task, but this information is often chaotically organised, stored in a wide variety of data-formats, and difficult to interpret.

This is a continuation of the LHD-11 Workshop at IJCAI-11.

UPDATE: This workshop has now been held. Many thanks to those who attended and participated for contributing to a vibrant and successful workshop. Details of LHD-13 will appear in due course.
