Juan Sequeda reported for SemanticWeb from ISWC 2011 in Bonn, Germany (see his five days of coverage here.) Juan reported on a number of prize winners from the conference including the winner of best paper: AKSW’s DBPedia SPARQL Benchmark – Performance Assessment with Real Queries on Real Data. The paper was written by Mohamed Morsey, Jens Lehmann, Soren Auer, Axel Cyrille, and Ngonga Ngomo.

In a brief description, the writers state, “In the paper we describe on the example of DBpedia how domain-specific SPARQL benchmarks can be generated and used for assessing the performance of triples stores. It’s a great  success for Mohamed Morsey, who did most of the implementation work and is only in the second year of his PhD studies at AKSW.”
