SemTechBiz 2014
Bad experience Unfortunately, most talks would not go into much technical detail; much buzz word dropping.
Description 10th version of the SemTech conference. People from mainly industry but also researchers meet to exchange experiences with Semantic Web technologies. Around 150 participants (SemTech, only; without collocated NoSQL conference).
Good experience Great overview of companies and topics in the field of Semantic Technologies. Great for networking.

Outcome Main take-home messages: Apache Spark for Main take-home messages: Apache Spark for fast in-memory-cluster-based analytics is gaining momentum as an alternative to hadoop and mapreduce. The main graph-based data models discussed seem to be RDF (surprise!) and the property-graph model as used by Neo4J and SAP (relations as first-class citizens to which arbitrary properties such as weights can be attached); oracle showed in a presentation how to (partly) quite trivially map between the two models. Based on the workshop "RDF as a Universal Healthcare Exchange Language - 2nd Annual", also other people recommend using RDF for representing medical information as we do in the SFB project.l information as we do in the SFB project.
