SSoLDAC – 3rd Summer School of Linked Data in Architecture and Construction
This year, the third LDAC Summer School dedicated to the application of semantic web, linked data and web of data technologies in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) is hosted in Matera, Italy. Considering the growing interest in these technologies from the AEC industry, this Summer School will provide a starting point for participants that are new to the topic entirely and the opportunity to enhance the understanding and overview of implementations and approaches in the built environment for participants that wish to deepen their knowledge in this field.
The Summer School brings together experts and researchers on this topic and welcomes a broad domain of participants from diverse backgrounds such as computer science, architecture, and engineering. With a mixture of lectures, personal interactions with experts in the field, hands-on exercises and coding challenges, it gives participants the opportunity to explore the possibilities of the semantic web, linked data and web of data technologies for their own research and practice needs in their individual pace and depth.
The aim of the LDAC Summer School is to introduce participants to the principles of the Semantic Web and potential as well as implemented applications of it in the architecture, engineering and construction domain. It provides an overview of the technology behind it and current trends in ongoing research in this area, focusing on:
