NSF Convergence Accelerator Tracks A&B Speaker Series


The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) tracks A and B of the Convergence Accelerator program are proud to present a speaker series on Open Knowledge Networks. The series features researchers and practitioners widely recognized for their contribution to knowledge graphs, knowledge engineering, and FAIR data. Due to the closure of UCSB for COVID-19, presentations will temporarily be hosted via Zoom meeting rooms.

Please contact Karen Doehner, kdoehner@spatial.ucsb.edu or Rui Zhu, ruizhu@ucsb.edu to review and schedule possible discussion topics or presentations for this series.
