Demo and poster at the ESWC

We presented a demo and a poster at the 10th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) in Montpellier, France (May 26 - 30, 2013). The conference took place in Corum, a building that houses a large conference centre and an opera house in the centre of the city. The poster and demo session was scheduled on the evening of the first day of the main conference program on Tuesday, May 28th. There were 20 posters and 24 demos in total accepted to the program, all presented in the large foyer area of Corum, which made for a rather vibrant atmosphere.

The Audio Feature Vocabulary

The Audio Feature Vocabulary defines terms for the tool and task specific ontologies and implements the model layer of the ontology framework. It is a clean version of the catalogue which only lists the features without any of their properties with many duplications of terms consolidated. This enables the definition of tool and task specific feature implementations and leaves any categorisation or taxonomic organisation to be specified in the implementation layer.

The 2nd UK Ontology Network Workshop

The 2nd UK Ontology Network Workshop took place in the Informatics Forum of the University of Edinburgh in Scotland last Thursday, April 11th, 2013. It was a one-day event that included 2 sessions of short 5-minute presentations, software and technology demos and an hour of group networking among all participants. The workshop was hosted by Fiona McNeill and Alan Bundy (the School of Informatics , University of Edinburgh).

Poster and demo accepted to the ESWC Conference

We are going to present a poster and a demo at the 10th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) which takes place from May 26th, 2013 to May 30th, 2013 in Montpellier, France. The ESWC is one of the major international events for discussing the latest scientific results and technology innovations around semantic technologies.

Requirements specification on Google Drive

I have made the requirements specification document for the Audio Features Ontology publicly accessible on Google Drive. The document is a draft version and will be updated over the course of the development phase of the ontology. The document can be accessed here. If you would like to have access to the editable latex format, please email me your login details and I can add you to the share list.

Presentation at DMRN+7

The Digital Music Research Network 1-day workshop was held on Tuesday 18th of December at the Queen Mary University of London. The workshop included invited and contributed talks, and poster sessions. In my talk I provided an overview of the project, the main goals and background, a brief summary of Semantic Web technologies, and then discussed a shared vocabulary for audio features in more detail.
