Meeting Description: 

The DBpedia community project extracts structured, multilingual knowledge from
Wikipedia and makes it freely available using Semantic Web and Linked Data
standards. The extracted knowledge, comprising more than 1.8 billion facts, is
structured according to an ontology maintained by the community. The knowledge
is obtained from different Wikipedia language editions, thus covering more
than 100 languages, and mapped to the community ontology. The resulting data
sets are linked to more than 30 other data sets in the Linked Open Data (LOD)
cloud. The DBpedia project was started in 2006 and has meanwhile attracted
large interest in research and practice. Being a central part of the LOD
cloud, it serves as a connection hub for other data sets. For the research
community, DBpedia provides a testbed serving real world data spanning many
domains and languages. Due to the continuous growth of Wikipedia, DBpedia also
provides an increasing added value for data acquisition, re-use and
integration tasks within organisations. In this system report, we give an
overview over the DBpedia community project, including its architecture,
technical implementation, maintenance, internationalisation, usage statistics
and showcase some popular DBpedia applications.
