This week the LinkedUp team are at the 11th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) 2014 which takes place from May 25th to May 29th, 2014 in Anissaras, Crete, Greece.

Yesterday morning the LinkedUp team facilitated a workshop in which the shortlisted candidates of the Vidi Competition had their chance to present their submitted demos and applications. The workshop was very well received by the ESWC community and involved a very fruitful discussion between the Vidi participants and the general ESWC audience.

After the workshop the audience had opportunities to test and play around with some of the demo applications. The participants were encouraged to further display their demos and applications as part of the LinkedUp booth, before showing the final showdown tonight where submissions from different challenges at ESWC including those of the Vidi are going to have a poster session.
