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 brought together experts on various aspects of the Web. The 2017 edition of the Web Intelligence Summer School (WISS) dealt with:

Data Management and Questions Answering with the Web of Data

We brought together experts on various aspects directly related to 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 learnt from formal presentations and hands-on sessions that make them scientifically and practically competent.

Program Overview

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