The STI Semantic Summit is a bi-annual strategic event with limited attendance where key players within the Semantic Web and Linked Data community can come together to discuss medium and long term research issues. The Summits are designed to be intellectually, socially, and geographically stimulating and address a small number of open research questions and industrial challenges of strategic importance to STI and to the Semantic Technology Community.

With its unique spacial flexibility, the Knossos Royal Village Conference Center can host any event – from large congresses to small corporate presentations – and guarantee its absolute success. The Knossos Royal Village boasts a large conference center containing two large halls that are tastefully decorated and equipped with state-of-the-art visual, sound, and simultaneous translation systems. The halls can host over 900 people and meet the needs of any large conference, or with the use of special soundproof screens, the halls can transform into eleven smaller, functional spaces.
While attending the event, participants can enjoy the hotel’s beautiful public spaces, the luxurious accommodations, the rare amenities provided, and the famous Cretan cuisine. The hotel also has a long tradition in organizing successful receptions, galas, and all kinds of social events.


Limenas Hersonissou

Hersonissos Limenas is a well organized resort located 27km to the east of Heraklion with a population of around 3,000 people. As its Greek name suggests, the resort is built on a small cape and it is blessed with some glorious sandy beaches. As a consequence it is a very popular holiday resort and can get quite busy during the summer months. It is well serviced with hotels, restaurants, night clubs and shops, including some very expensive designer shops selling jewellery and fashion. 
The village of Hersonissos is 3km away inland and seems to be oblivious to the busy tourist centre that has grown up on the coast just a few km away. Historians believe that the area has been populated since prehistoric times and in ancient times was the seaport of ancient Lyttus.
