Organizing committee


The SMAM workshop at ISWC 2013 provides a forum to explore and promote the applications of Semantic Web Technologies in the domain of music and time-based media. Emerging activities in research, development and production, driven by projects in both academia and industry, are already spanning many aspects of the creation, management, discovery, delivery and analysis of musical and media content. This workshop brings together this community to share information and practice, and especially to articulate the research agenda in Semantic Music and Media, e.g. "end-to-end semantics" through the lifecycle of digital media. This workshop aims at facilitating innovation and helping to achieve the full potential of Semantic Web in this domain, as well as informing Semantic Web research and its application to this area.
