Semantic Web and Agri-Food Workshop and Hackathon
The workshop will focus on the ways semantic web and related technologies (ontologies, linked data, etc.) can be used across the food and agriculture supply chain to facilitate the exchange of information and enable the creation of additional services for farmers, transporters and processors of food, retailers and final consumers, in effect the whole supply chain. Supply chain integration is a holy grail in many industries but given the specific challenges of the agri-food sector and its importance to society, to the economy, and to the environment, such integration is vital.
Semantic technologies, ontologies and related technologies have grown considerably in maturity in recent years. This workshop seeks papers presenting all aspect of these technologies ranging from position papers to implemented systems and their evaluation. We are particularly interested in examples where semantic technologies are used to cross the boundaries between sub-sectors of the agri-food production and supply chain. Discussions of existing or proposed ontologies are welcome.
