The 6th Scottish Linked Data Interest Group Workshop (SLiDInG6) will be hosted by the Heriot-Watt University Semantic Web Lab (SWeL) in Edinburgh. The event is sponsored by the SICSA Data Science theme.

Date: Tuesday 29 May 2018
Time: 10:00 – 16:30
Venue: Room 2.33, Earl Mountbatten Building, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh

SLiDInG6 aims to bring together organisations from industry, government and academia from around Scotland to share different perspectives around Linked Data, and to inform participants of current research on Linked Data and its uptake in industry and government.

We plan to have flash talks to highlight current areas of activity and deployment of Semantic Web technologies. We then plan to have discussion groups focusing on:
• What are the killer apps of the Semantic Web?
• What are the challenges from industry and government?
• Where are the synergies in Semantic Web research in Scotland?
• Can we identify projects to push forward for funding?
We hope that the outcome will be the identification of future collaborations and projects that will be developed after the event.
