Semantic enrichment makes the publishers’ content more discoverable, providing more value to the user by enabling the building of highly differentiated products for different audiences. This is semantic technology made practical and leading to increased visibility and new markets. This forum will look both at sectors where investment has proved successful and those where there is a learning process.

  • Alan Maloney, Senior Product Analyst, SAGE Publications on Designing for serendipity, looking at how semantic enrichment can link together wildly different types of content
  • Graham McCann, Head of Content and Platform Management at the Institute of Physics Publishing will speak on using semantic software for enriching publishing content and the reader experience. He led the IOP enrichment programme which included creating a new ontology from scratch
  • Sam Herbert is Client Services Director, 67 Bricks one of the UK’s leading suppliers in the field and he will speak on Semantic enrichment: What it is and how publishers are using it to bring more value to their customers
