In science and technology, complex relationships exist between the properties of products and their composition and processing. For this reason, digital transformation and acceleration in this domain represents a particularly big challenge. Although it is generally agreed that data must be linked together by means of semantics and ontologies to form holistic data spaces, there is still a lack of suitable tools for integrating the necessary structures into the everyday work of scientists and engineers. Open Semantic Lab a holistic approach to address this deficiency: A SMW-based interactive web platform that can capture all our data and ideas and link them precisely - no matter if it' s inventory (LIMS), lab notes (ELN), procedures (SOP) or general knowledge. Each piece of information can also be machine-read, blockchain-signed and written to automatically transfer (Lab 4.0) and analyse (AI) measurement data. As an open (source) system, Open Semantic Lab can be easily adapted without programming knowledge without losing the uniform structure. In this way, we can contribute to everyone's knowledge individually and yet in a standardized way.
30 min.
The ReplicationWiki is undergoing a massive expansion and for the first time is used as a forum for a webinar series. The use case and experience with technical tools and challenges are presented.

Conference Day 3 - Friday, October 28

120 min.
In the datafication of juridical texts in real estate we combine a complete round-trip set of semantic web technogies. We built a skos-based taxonomy to organize the knowledge we derive from the text models and translate that knowledge into an ontology. The result is an rdf-a document that contains all the relevant data that conforms to the ontology and is self-explaining by the taxonomy.
60 min.
150 min.
During the hackathon developers will try to solve some issues that have been brought up.
In the experience of the ReplicationWiki the standard Semantic MediaWiki search form is too complicated for average users, both for those setting up SMWs but especially for those who just use them. It should be relatively easy to adjust it to make it more user friendly.
