Web Intelligence Summer School
31 August - 4 September 2015
Saint-Étienne, France


Sharing, connecting, managing, analyzing and understanding data on the 
Web will enable better services for citizens, communities and industry. 
However, turning web data into successful services for the public and 
private sector requires skilled web and data scientists, and it still 
requires further research. In order to teach and train researchers and 
to create exchange opportunities, the Web Intelligence community in 
Rhône-Alpes and Universität Bonn are bringing together experts on these 
aspects of the Web.

The 2015 edition of the Web Intelligence Summer School (WISS) is called
"Question answering based on web data". We will bring together experts 
on various aspects directly related to this question:
  -publication of web data (linked data, semantic web standards and 
  -understanding and analyzing a question in natural language (NLP),
  -finding data to answer the question and to justify the answer 
(information retrieval, data management, machine learning, data 
  -presenting the answers (visual analytics).

During the week of the 31th of August to the 4th of September 2015, 
students will learn from ****formal presentations** and ****hands-on
sessions**  that will make them scientifically and practically competent.
