I am currently at ISWC. The conference is a bit smaller this year, but the quality of the papers is very good. After two excelent keynotes by Raj Reddy and Marcel Just, the conference program started yesterday morning
Burcu Cinaz presented our paper on HeadSLAM and she did well, especially considering that it was her first presentation on a major conference and it was the first technical presentation of the conference.
Today, there was another inspiring keynote by Rory Cooper and then, there were more technical presentations. Now, just before lunch, the panel discussion is taking place.
Yesterday, it was announced that the next ISWC in Linz/Austria is taking place at the same time as the ars electronica festival. This could be a very interesting collaboration.
