Lynx Technical Meeting in Vienna

 

During the 22nd and 23rd of May, a Lynx technical meeting is taking place in Vienna, hosted by Semantic Web Company

Technical representatives from each member organisation of Lynx consortium have gathered to clarify some pending issues from the last plenary meeting in Barcelona.

These decisions are crucial to continue developing the Legal Knowledge Graph and build the Lynx platform as sound and stable as possible.



4th Lynx Plenary Meeting being celebrated in Barcelona

About twenty members of Lynx Consortium are meeting in Barcelona during these days (29th-30th April) to recap the project status and address new action points for the upcoming months.

The meeting, hosted by Cuatrecasas, is a crucial appointment since the project is now in month 17. This means the middle of the project, time to carefully select the next steps in order to accomplish fixed goals and milestones.

Moreover, the Advisory Board, composed by Philipp Cimiano, Marie-Claude L’Homme and Neil Wilkof, attended as well (present and online). They raised useful questions and enriching suggestions that will for sure be of great help to boost the project.
