Live Social Semantics

Abstract : Social interactions are one of the key factors to the success of con- ferences and similar community gatherings. This paper describes a novel appli- cation that integrates data from the semantic web, online social networks, and a real-world contact sensing platform. This application was successfully deployed at ESWC09, and actively used by 139 people. Personal profiles of the partici- pants were automatically generated using several Web 2.0 systems and semantic academic data sources, and integrated in real-time with face-to-face contact net- works derived from wearable sensors. Integration of all these heterogeneous data layers made it possible to offer various services to conference attendees to en- hance their social experience such as visualisation of contact data, and a site to explore and connect with other participants. This paper describes the architecture of the application, the services we provided, and the results we achieved in this deployment.
