Semantic Web and Ontologies in Agri-Food (details)

Time: Thursday 13:30 to 16:30 (with 15 minutes break)

Brief Description: This tutorial 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 tutorial will cover topics including an introduction to Semantic Web Technologies and Linked Data for the agri-food sector, existing vocabularies and ontologies, a number of application examples, and finally cover the future potential of the technology stack. The tutorial will be informed by the experience gathered from participating in the FI PPP project SmartAgriFood ( ).

Designing and Testing the User Experience in Interactive Information Systems (Cancelled)

Time: Thursday 16:00 to 18:00

Brief Description:the aim of this tutorial is to provide basic knolewdge for scholars and professionals who are involved in the design and evaluation of web sites and other information systems where search is a critical component of the success of the system. The tutorial creates an interesting learning experience based on good scholarship, practical experience on designing search systems, practical experience on evaluating web sites and other interactive systems, methods to analyse the user behaviour. The emphasis of the tutorial will be on developing basic foundations to understand design and evaluation of UX in interactive information systems and also to transfer practical skills that will be very useful for anyone involved in the development of web sites or other interactive systems where searching for information is the primary task.
