One of the more highly anticipated panels at next month’s Semantic Technology and Business Conference (#SemTechBiz) in Berlin, Germany, will be the closing keynote panel, Schema.org – Where Are We Now. The panel will feature Peter Mika of Yahoo!, Sandro Hawke of the W3C, Dan Brickley of schema.org at Google, and our own Eric Franzon. The combined knowledge and breadth of experience of these semantic web experts will make this panel an unmissable event at SemTechBiz’s first Berlin-based conference.

Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and Yandex all rely on structured data markup in HTML pages to improve the display of search results, making it easier for people to find the right web pages. Last June, these search engines announced a joint initiative called schema.org. Schema.org is a shared markup vocabulary that webmasters can use to describe information in their pages in ways recognized by these major search providers. This panel will explore the current state of standards activities, tools, and implementations of schema.org with leaders from the schema.org effort and W3C.
