In the first week of July I participated the first edition of the International Semantic Web Research Summer School (ISWS) in Bertinoro, Italy. It was an exciting event, where I had a lot of fun and learned also a lot! Continue reading for the full travel report.


For the ISWS summer school I prepared an interactive poster. Read in his post what it is about and see how it was made.


At the end of May I had the chance to attend the WebScience conference. A venue where computer scientists and social scientists meet! ACM Turing Lecture by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, adaptive learning analytics, roots of radicalisation on Twitter, internet regulation in Russia. These are only some of the very interesting topics. Continue reading for the full travel report.


The cabinet of Germany has the plan to publish the drafts of laws and associated position papers of the lobbies. This should be done for more than 600 laws of the past 4 years. This transparency can reveal a lot. For instance, which Lobby influenced which law actively. Nearly 17,000 documents are planned to be published. But how can one handle this huge amount?


You are traveling abroad to a conference and you think you are prepared? Think again! There is always something you probably will forget about and if some unfavorable circumstances following each other you may find yourself in real trouble. Check out my list, learn from my mistakes and extend it, in case I missed something!



FAST tracking e-government deployment through automated customer journey development

Complicated rules, multiple contact points, numerous forms and applications and three administrative levels: processes as common as home renovations in Flanders require a lot of manual administrative work. To streamline customer journeys and simplify processes, municipalities and other public organizations would benefit from e-government applications. However, implementing these solutions is challenging, considering the lack of well-structured content and the need to integrate legacy systems. FAST aims to tackle the challenges to e-government adoption by creating an engine to automatically generate customer journeys from existing unstructured content – the ideal collection of digital interaction points between public services, organizations and citizens – for a range of public tasks.

Ecosystem for Data management of Local publishers

Media companies in Flanders today have fragmented consumer data, with each company maintaining its own data management platform. As a result, data remains largely undervalorized. The EcoDaLo project aims to develop a knowledge platform for publishers allowing the integration of many diverse data sources. It will also define a business model for cooperative data products that complies with regulations and guarantees data ownership and privacy protection. These outcomes will lead to increased scale and thus competitiveness of local media companies, a healthier media ecosystem and a framework for other sectors in need of new ways of leveraging data.

LEarning analytics for AdaPtive Support

The purpose of the LEAPS project is to develop a self-learning analytics system for adaptive learning. This support system can be integrated into assistive software for struggling readers, supportive software for professional communication, and educational games. In the consortium, partners with a wide range of expertise will work together, including statistics, computer, educational and cognitive sciences, human-computer interaction, software engineering and educational publishing. This highly interdisciplinary collaboration will help create a much needed and marketable solution.
