Professor De Roure presents at ESWC conference in Slovenia

Centre Director David De Roure presented last week at the 14th international ESWC conference in Slovenia, one of the key academic conferences to present research results and new developments in the area of the Semantic Web.

Professor De Roure was one of the organisers of a workshop on "Enabling Decentralised Scholarly Communication", presenting a talk on 'Sholarly Social Machines' - slides from his talk are available here.

"Despite many attempts to perturb a scholarly publishing system that is over 350 years old, it feels pretty much like business as usual. I argue that we may have become "trapped inside the machine", and if we want to change it in an informed way we need to step outside and take a look".
