Dear Maria,

You can find recordings from our last meeting in the DBpedia's channel
We will try to do the same for this meeting as well but I don;t think we'll
manage to support streaming

If you are interested to give a remote presentation please submit your idea
and our committee will decide.

>> ==== 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:
>> * Adrian Paschke (DBpedia German Chapter & FU Berlin)
>> * Harald Sack (DBpedia German Chapter & HPI Potsdam)
