Web Intelligence Summer School - The Web of Data
25th-29th August, 2014
Saint-Étienne, France

Data is no longer an asset that only companies and organisations deal 
with. Recently, Web data has become crucial to our daily life. Open data 
is transforming institutions, people are sharing increasingly private 
and sensitive data on social networks, access to web APIs facilitates 
application development, and linked data is changing the Web into a huge 
database. The Web of Data is thus complementing the existing Web of 
multimedia documents, the Social Web and the Web of Applications. In 
this situation everybody should be aware of data management, 
manipulation, access and visualisation.

During one week, the Web Intelligence community in Rhône Alpes and 
Universität Bonn will bring together Web of Data experts who will equip 
the participants with scientific and practical competence via lectures 
and hands-on sessions, enabling them to contribute to and take advantage 
of the full potential of the Web of Data.
