This code provides you with a one-day workshop ticket for the discounted price of 95.- Euro that covers all conference and workshop services on site on 20th of September 2023.

The continuously increasing number of data spaces and data markets in Europe, as well as the related funding lines and regulations by the European Commission (for instance the Data Governance Act and several programme lines in Horizon Europe and Digital Europe) regarding the topics of (secure) data sharing of industrial and personal related data as well as research data clearly shows the increasing need to discuss, specify and realise (syntactic and semantic) data interoperability between such data spaces and beyond.

In June 2022 the workshop: Data Spaces & Semantic Interoperability was accomplished by the TRUSTS project, University of Economics Vienna, IDSA, W3C, SWC, FhG FIT and DIO identifying the bottlenecks and gaps in Data Space interoperability.

As a follow-up to this 2022 workshop and to explore and discuss the current tool & best practice landscape regarding Syntactic and Semantic Interoperability in Data Spaces a full-day workshop will take place back to back to SEMANTiCS 23 conference on 20th of September 2023 at the Hyperion Hotel Leipzig.

The workshop will combine 2 main parts: (i) an experts panel to discuss syntactic and semantic interoperability, and (ii) a series of lightning talks from the Call for Participation – Position Papers. And rounds of discussions about the workshop topic.

This one-day workshop brings together researchers, decision makers and practitioners in the field of the development and operation of European (common) data spaces, data markets and other web-based data management systems that allow data sharing, trading and data collaboration, to discuss requirements, standards, tools, licenses and more regarding (semantic data) interoperability in data spaces.

The output document will summarise all the inputs and discussions about mainly (a) requirements for syntactic and semantic interoperability as well as (b) concrete tools and thereby will provide a first landscape of existing tools and list of vocabularies. The outcome will be published freely available under an open license / under open access.
