Hi All,

I wanted to give you a brief summary of last week's exciting 9th
Extended Semantic Web Conference

==Overview==
- The conference showcased the best the community has to offer with a
25% acceptance rate for technical track submissions.

- Again the conference continued the tradition of fantastic keynote
speakers including a novel and well received keynote from political
strategist Julius van der Laar as well as leaders in the filed like
Monica Lam (Stanford) and Alon Halevy (Google). These keynotes will be
made available on videolectures.net soon.

- We had a fantastic poster, demo and AI Mashup session in which the
best scores were calculated using SPARQL queries!

- You can find all the papers  in LNCS Volume 7295 at

-- Metadata is at http://data.semanticweb.org/conference/eswc/2012/html
