Conference within the I-SEMANTICS series. I-SEMANTICS 2012 brings 
together both researchers and practitioners in the areas of Semantic 
Technologies, Linked Data and the Semantic Web in order to showcase 
cutting edge research, demonstrators and applications for the Corporate 
and Social Semantic Web. As in the past years, the I-SEMANTICS 
conference will be complemented by I-KNOW (www.i-know.at), the 12th 
International Conference on Knowledge Management, aiming to reflect the 
increasing importance and convergence of knowledge management and 
semantic systems.
