If you would like to receive an invitation please contact the event organiser John Pereira (john.pereira(at)salzburgresearch.at.
The IKS CIO Workshop is an exclusive event for CIOs and IT Managers who want to learn about how Smart Content will change the way information is managed and consumed in the future. Move ahead of your competition by getting involved in a project that is defining future standards in information and content management. This exclusive event is also an excellent opportunity to meet with other CIOs and IT Managers to discuss how information will be managed in the future.
Smart Content is semantically enriched content that is structured and linked to other content and services. It fuels Smart Business at content-concerned organisations be they content producers, publishers or content consumers. IKS is a major EU part-funded initiative to bring such semantic content capabilities to the market.

IKS CIO Worskshop - "Smart Content = Smart Business"
This workshop will demonstrate the value of using IKS semantic enhancement tools in today's Content Management Systems. The demonstrations are a mix of ready to install IKS software and more experimental advanced semantic applications that show how your users can benefit from more intelligent extraction and linking of content and services.
As Seth Grimes put it:
The IKS project aims to add semantically rooted capabilities to content management: semantic search, content enrichment, support for intelligent user interfaces (“semantic navigation”), even support for reasoning, for automated inference, over managed content. Yet the semantic annotations that affix meaning to managed content are rarely born with the content. It’s not that users are lazy. Rather, they’re writing for an immediate audience and not for wider reuse, and authoring and publishing tools do not make it easy to create annotated content, or even to create a rich set of metadata describing content.
Content analytics can fill the gap. Content analytics — natural language processing (NLP) and also, increasingly, automated tagging and information extraction from speech/audio, images, and video — is sense-making technology, whether applied by content consumers, each with individual information needs, or by content producers and publishers, who seek to make their content findable, usable, and useful"
