Run your own VoCamp![edit]

The following list is in a vague sequence according to likely time of event (soonest first).



Planned for the Monday-Tuesday of Nov 18-19th, following the weekend AAAI Symposium session.

We expect that this Vocamp workshop would be a relatively small event of 20-30 but NSF will provide rooms and a WebEx for the general sessions.


Vienna, Austria[edit]

in conjunction with ESTC

Edinburgh, Scotland[edit]

Harry Halpin and Keith Alexander have discussed the possibility of organising a VoCamp in Edinburgh. At this point, July might be the best month. Also, there is a huge festival in Edinburgh all of August. We could do VoCamp at the Informatics Forum at the University of Edinburgh.

Barcelona, Spain[edit]

There is a possibility of a VoCamp in Barcelona or Madrid in Spring 2009, close (in time) to WWW2009. If you're interested in taking part make your enthusiasm known to Peter Mika ;) (see VoCampIbiza2009!)

London, England[edit]

tommorris: if you have space in London and would be willing to let me run such an event in London, ping me an e-mail - tom@tommorris.org (via #swig)

Austin, TX, USA[edit]

Juan Sequeda has expressed an interest in running a VoCamp in Austin, TX. This is going to take place on the weekend of March 28-29. VoCampAustin2009

Washington DC, USA[edit]

Ed Summers is interested in trying to help make a VoCamp happen in DC: possibly at the Library of Congress, or elsewhere in the area. There are lots of people doing stuff with OWL, RDFS, RDF, etc in the area... so getting people together around vocabulary development seems like a generally useful thing to try to do. Immediately before or after ISWC2009 (October 2009) has been floated as a potential window for this event.

We are organizing the WOP workshop at ISWC 2009. It is strongly related to Vocamp activities and we are thinking at organizing a Vocamp there supported by the workshop. I'll let you know more precise info soon. (Valentina)

Baltimore, MD, USA[edit]

Rumour has it that a VoCamp may be on the cards for Bristol. Watch this space. See VoCampBristol2009!

Glasgow, Scotland[edit]
