The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), successor of the International Semantic Web Working Symposium (SWWS) and the International Workshop series on the Semantic Web (SemWeb), is an international forum, for the Semantic Web / Linked Data Community.

ISWC is a 3 days conference with 2 days pre-conference tutorials and workshops and a pre-conference doctoral consortium day. The technical program of the conference regularly consists of a research track, a semantic web in-use track, an industry track, an “ideas” track (successor of Lightning Talks), poster and demo sessions, and Semantic Web Challenge sessions.

The organizaion of ISWC is supervided by the Semantic Web Science Association (SWSA).
