SEMAPRO 2021 - The Fifteenth International Conference on Advances in Semantic Processing

October 03, 2021 - October 07, 2021

SEMAPRO 2021: Program
Onsite and Online Options: In order to accommodate a large number of situations, we are offering the option for either physical presence or virtual participation (pdf slides or pre-recorded videos).

For 2021, all events will be held in a hybrid mode with five options: on site or virtual choices (live, prerecorded videos, voiced presentation slides, and .pdf slides).

We hope for better times allowing us to return to the traditional on site scientific events. However, we are ready to adapt any which way the conditions dictate.

 

NexTech 2021 Congress

Conference will be mixed online and on location at

Novotel Barcelona Sant Joan Despi
Carrer de la TV3, 2
08970 Sant Joan Despi
Spain

Note: This event is a mix of online and on site participation. All contributions are posted below; those presenting onsite have their own schedule, as a subset of the entire program.
