SCOOP4C is excited to participate in SEMIC 2018 on June 14th, 2018 in Sofia, Bulgaria

Mon, 5 Mar 2018

The 8th edition of SEMIC, the annual semantic interoperability conference, will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria on 14 June 2018. The event is organised by the ISA² Programme of the European Commission in collaboration with the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU.

The theme of the conference will be "Linked Digital Public Administrations". Nowadays, public administrations exchange data with each other and with citizens and businesses, interconnect their systems and link their data. This brings direct benefit to citizens, as they do not have to provide the same information several times. Therefore, the interconnection of base registers, such as business registers, land registers, etc. plays an important role. The implementation of the once-only principle will reduce the administrative burden of citizens and businesses. 

At the same time, these registers hold data of immense value for the public, making these and other data produced by public services available and linkable with data from other sources. This provides opportunities for large-scale data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, as a source of knowledge for society as a whole. The participants of SEMIC 2018 will have an opportunity to discover and share current trends and recent developments in relation to these topics.
