ISI Team Nabs ISWC Best Paper

October 28, 2016

An ISI team consisting of Linhong Zhu, Majid Ghasemi-Gol, Pedro Szekely, Aram Galstyan and Craig Knoblock won Best Research Paper at the 15th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) that ended October 21st, 2016.

Their paper, “Unsupervised Entity Resolution on Multi-type Graphs,” explores use of links between different instance types to perform entity resolution on RDF graphs with multiple node types. 

The award marks a two-fer for ISI at ISWC, which calls itself “the premier international forum for Intelligent Processing of Data on the Web.”  Last year, a 20-person team led by Pedro won Best Applied Paper for its work on building and using knowledge graphs to combat human trafficking. 

Congratulations to this year’s team, particularly Linhong and Majid, who Pedro reports generated the idea and did the “heavy lifting.”  The 2016 event was chaired by Yolanda Gil.
