About the 2017 edition



Sharing, connecting, managing, analyzing and understanding data on the Web will enable better services for citizens, communities and industry. However, turning web data into successful services for the public and private sector requires skilled web and data scientists, and it still requires further research. In order to teach and train researchers and to create exchange opportunities, we are bringing together experts on various aspects of the Web. The 2017 edition of the Web Intelligence Summer School (WISS) will deal with:

Data Management and Questions Answering with the Web of Data

We will bring together experts on various aspects directly related this question: publication and management of web data, understanding and analyzing a question in natural language or in key words, finding data to answer the question and to justify the answer.

During the week, students will learn from formal presentations and hands-on sessions that will make them scientifically and practically competent.

Program Overview

The week will be divided into half-day sessions, each of which provides scientific and practical knowledge to the attendees.


The speakers have been invited from the well known institutions in the field, in order to ensure highest quality in content and pedagogy. We will update the web site frequently as we get confirmed speakers and plan the program.
