SMWCon Fall 2013 a big success
October 31, 2013. The Fall 2013 Semantic MediaWiki Conference was held in Berlin, Germany on October 28-30, 2013. As general chair Benedikt Kämpgen stated in his opening remarks, this was by far the largest SMWCon, with 86 attendees from 17 countries. Attendance would have been even higher if registration had not been closed three weeks before the event due to the limitations of the venue. This was also the first SMWCon to have two tracks, enabling tutorials for both users and developers during the tutorial day.
The event had the highest-ever number of talks, covering the current state and future plans for the software, as well as a wide variety of uses in business, science and government.
