Data and knowledge engineering seminars

Data and knowledge engineering research seminars discuss research of interest to the data and knowledge engineering group including, but not limited to, knowledge representation and reasoning, text and data mining and data privacy.

A new seminar programme for 2018 will begin later this year. More details will be published on this page.

These seminars will take place in room C/2.11 on Mondays between 13:00 and 14:00. Everyone is welcome to attend any seminar.
