Tutorials at SEMANTiCS 2023 allow your organisation or project to 
advance and promote your topics and gain increased visibility. The 
tutorials will be announced on the SEMANTiCS website and they will be 
seen by all participants. SEMANTiCS 2023 tutorials can be incubators for 
industrial and scientific communities that form and share a particular 
research and development agenda. They provide a forum for presenting 
contributions and findings to a diverse and knowledgeable community.
Furthermore, the event can be used as a dissemination activity in the 
scope of large research projects or as a closed format for 
research/commercial project consortia meetings.

take place on the days before and/or after the main SEMANTiCS 2023 EU
