> ==== About DBpedia ====
> Source: http://www.semantic-web-journal.net/system/files/swj499.pdf
> The DBpedia community project extracts structured, multilingual knowledge
> from Wikipedia and makes it freely available using Semantic Web and Linked
> Data standards. The extracted knowledge, comprising more than 1.8 billion
> facts, is structured according to an ontology maintained by the community.
> The knowledge is obtained from different Wikipedia language editions, thus
> covering more than 100 languages, and mapped to the community ontology. The
> resulting data sets are linked to more than 30 other data sets in the
> Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud. The DBpedia project was started in 2006 and
> has meanwhile attracted large interest in research and practice. Being a
> central part of the LOD cloud, it serves as a connection hub for other data
> sets. For the research community, DBpedia provides a testbed serving real
> world data spanning many domains and languages. Due to the continuous
> growth of Wikipedia, DBpedia also provides an increasing added value for
> data acquisition, re-use and integration tasks within organisations. In
> this system report, we give an overview over the DBpedia community project,
> including its architecture, technical implementation, maintenance,
> internationalisation, usage statistics and showcase some popular DBpedia
> applications.
> Travel Grants / Sponsorship
> =================
> Some of the DBpedia developers work on DBpedia in their free-time and will
> not have institutional funding to come to the meeting. Therefore, we are
> still looking for sponsors for travel grants (as well as coffee and food
> for the sessions). If you are interested to sponsor this meeting, please
> fill out this form to request more information: http://goo.gl/LSwt4P
> Given we can acquire a sponsor, participants can apply for a travel grant
> here: http://goo.gl/LSwt4P  or email Adrian.
> These grants will be awarded depending on the standing in the community
> and community activity, e.g. Google Summer of Code participation or Git
> Commits to DBpedia framework, activity on the mailing lists, etc.
> We hope to see you all in Leipzig:
