If you're visiting this year's Frankfurt Book Fair, we're holding a seminar on how academic publishers can get the best out of the semantic web. It's a free breakfast seminar hosted by Louise Russell (Tutton), who you may recognise from our series of videos on the semantic web for publishers.

All the details for the event are given below. If you're in Frankfurt and fancy a good breakfast and some equally good conversation on how both scholarly publishing and academic research stand to benefit from the next phase of the web, please come along. You can also contribute to the discussions via Twitter by using the hashtag #fbfsemweb

Navigating the Semantic Web: A Publisher’s Survival Guide


Join us for breakfast and this FREE seminar on Thursday 13 October, 9:00-10:00 - Sparks Stage, Hall 4.2, B408

As we move into the next phase of the web, many new opportunities are presented to publishers to make the most of the internet as a medium for scholarly communication. Enriched content, new discovery paths and interactive data offer ways of enhancing the research process and adding value to peer reviewed content. They also provide benefits to the researcher as they grapple with information overload.


Presented by Louise (Tutton) Russell, Chief Operating Officer for Online Solutions at Ingenta, this seminar examines what the semantic web means for publishers and their online products. It will answer the key questions associated with the practicalities of implementing a semantic web strategy, focussing on workflow, author submissions and content formats. Louise will also discuss the challenges and, more importantly, the opportunities to be embraced.
