A highlight of the month of May 2022 was the FutureMuseum project meeting which took place in the inspiring setting of the MUMOK in Vienna! More than 60 participants from museums all over the world attended the meeting to discuss core issues related to the digital strategy of museums. They enjoyed a two days long exciting programme, including many inspiring talks, brainstorming events and social activities – all organized to an impeccable quality level by Museum Booster (the project coordinator).
The SemSys group (Fajar Ekaputra and Marta Sabou) was present at the meeting in its role of research partner and has kicked-off the planned work of understanding how ontology-based data integration can support modern museums in accelerating the design and implementation of data driven applications. To that end, an interview with the representatives of the Swiss National Museum took place.
The SemSys group looks forward to this interesting line of work as well as further inspiring meetings!
