The goal of this workshop is to strengthen the participation of the semantic web community in the recent surge of research on the use of events as a key concept for representing knowledge and organising and structuring media on the web. The workshop invites contributions to three central themes: event detection, event representation, and event exploitation. Its goal is to formulate answers to questions in these themes that advance and reflect the current state of understanding. Each submission will be expected to address at least two themes explicitly, if possible including a system demonstration. This year, we specifically invite contributions that address both event and conversation semantics in multimedia and social media.
