ISWC 2010 Data and Demos

From Semantic Web Standards

This page gives datasets and demonstrations developed for ISWC 2010, and existing tools that can be used with ISWC 2010 Metadata.

Feel free to expand the list with your own tools.


Basic Conference dataset

The data is maintained on the Semantic Web Dog Food website.

Bibliographic Data on BibBase

BibTeX entries of all the papers are retrieved from Semantic Web Dog Food entries, and published as Linked Data using BibBase

  • Browse data
  • HTML (You can group by authors, for example, to find out who has the highest number of papers at ISWC and its workshops)
  • SPARQL endpoint (Still in Beta, with internal limits)

Note that the author entities on BibBase are interlinked with DBLP and other data sets published by RKBExplorer (such as ACM and CiteSeer)
