Dear Semantic Web community,

This is a reminder about participation to a summer school, with just 10

We invite PhD students and other researchers from academia or industry 
to apply to the second summer school on AI Technologies for Trust, 
Interoperability and Autonomy in Industry 4.0 (short ai4industry).

We are extremely happy to have four keynote speakers this year:

* Dominique Guinard, who helped settle the Web of Things as a research 
field as he worked at ETH Zürich (Switzerland). He then co-founded 
EVRYTHNG, a company providing one of the leading professional Cloud 
platforms for the Internet of Things.

* Armin Haller, who is an associate professor at the Australian National 
University. He chaired the working group that standardized the Semantic 
Sensor Network ontology, a major semantic model for exposing sensor and 
actuator data on the Web.

* Birgit Vogel-Heuser, who is professor at TU Munich (Germany). She is 
member of the advisory board of VDI/VDE, the German association of 
engineers, and chair of the association’s working group on agent-based 
systems. She has also contributed to IEEE publications on industrial agents.

* Sonja Zillner, who works for Siemens AG (Germany) on the topic of 
trustworthy AI in the industry. Through the Big Data Value Association, 
she is also coordinating advisory work on AI on behalf of the European 

We will also have three instructors:

* Victor Charpenay is associate professor at Mines Saint-Étienne 
(France). He has been contributing to the standardization of the Web of 
Things Thing Description model, to expose heterogeneous devices on the Web.

* Tobias Käfer is substitute professor at KIT, the Karlsruhe Institute 
of Technologies (Germany). He is currently leading the European COST 
action on Distributed Knowledge Graphs.

* Jomi Fred Hübner is professor at the Federal University of Santa 
Catarina (Brazil). He is the main developer of Jason, a widely used 
language and interpreter for Agent-Oriented Programming. Jomi Fred 
Hübner is also one of the promoters of Multi-Agent-Oriented Programming 
and the JaCaMo platform, integrating Jason with other frameworks for 
developing all aspects of multi-agent systems in a unified manner.
