The team at DATAVERSITY™ is very pleased to announce that we have acquired SemanticWeb.com and the Semantic Technology and Business Conferences. As a writer for both websites, I’m personally quite excited to see these two great communities come together. As the release states, “DATAVERSITY Education LLC, a subsidiary of Wilshire Conferences, Inc. today announced the acquisition of the publishing and conference assets of the Semantic Technology and Business (SemTechBiz) Conferences and the SemanticWeb.com web site, from Mediabistro, Inc.”

Tony Shaw, CEO of DATAVERSITY commented, “We are pleased to be engaging again with the community of semantic technology professionals through these two high quality media channels. Semantic technology is an ideal match with our DATAVERSITY subject matter portfolio which is focused primarily on the areas or enterprise data and big data.”

The release adds, “SemanticWeb.com is the voice of Semantic Technology Business: Linked Data, Big Data, Smart Data. We cover news about how companies are making money, saving money, and solving Big Data challenges using Semantic Technologies. SemanticWeb.com is the leading source for news and information about Semantic Technologies and the people and companies working with them today. Industry news, case studies and practical applications, company and product announcements, job postings, opinion, webcasts, podcasts, and a community-run Q&A platform called ‘Answers’ are all found at SemanticWeb.com.”

  • Is this impacting the upcoming Sem Tech Biz conference in San Jose?


  • Hi Andrew,

    The conference is only being impacted in that the dates and location will change from any previously announced. We will make a formal announcement shortly (including opening the CFP), but the conference will still be in San Jose this summer!
