KGC 2020 Goes Virtual – KGC Newsletter Issue 05

KGC 2020 Goes Virtual

Hi everyone,

The health and well-being of the KGC community is our top priority.

Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and following the best practices recommended by the CDC and WHO, we have decided to reimagine KGC 2020 to be a complete virtual experience that takes place on May 4–7.

The Knowledge Graph Conference 2020 will be transformed into a global, digital-first, multi-day event that connects attendees and speakers through streamed keynotes, breakout sessions, workshops, tutorials and more.

This opens up a lot of potential, making the conference more accessible to mass audiences around the globe, more interactive and dynamic in a digital way, and more customizable to individual learning and relearning.

As we work through the details of this virtual conference experience in the coming weeks, we will continue to share updates with you via the newsletter.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all online in May.

We have an amazing lineup of speakers this year! Stay tuned.
