Welcome to the New York Semantic Web Meetup, an open community that shares common interest in the Semantic Web and aspects of Advanced Database Systems, Ontologies, Rule Systems, Graph Databases, ORM and RDBMS storage for RDF, Knowledge Management Systems, Computational Linguistics. The Semantic Web effort is an initiative by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) [1] to provide a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. The meetup format is very much inspired by my experience with foafcamp and unconference style community events.

If you live, work or visit the New York metropolitan area and you are interested in these topics you are welcome to participate and share your insight and your opinion about existing and future applications, concepts and frameworks with the NY Semantic Web Meetup at the monthly meeting or the mailing list. Visit to join the Semantic Web Meetup.

The New York Semantic Web Meetup (SWNYC) develops and promotes Semantic Web standards, and cooperates closely with the W3C and standard bodies in particular with regards to the RDF standard and Semantic Web technologies. SWNYC is an open organization, with no formal membership or membership requirements. All participants and leaders are volunteers, though their work is usually funded by their employer or sponsor.
