Topics and Content

Visual representations (charts, graphs, diagrams) of heterogeneous data (numeric trends, social networks, molecular structures) play an important role in human communication. Yet most of the visual objects (VOs) published on the World Web Web are only available as unstructured raster images, thus depriving us of the ability to explore and query their contents. This workshop aims to expose raw data contained within VOs (maintaining the visual information) using Semantic Web technologies so as to facilitate interoperability, data sharing, granular annotation, common visual rendering and ultimately, question answering and knowledge discovery.

Workshop Format and Attendance:
