The ETIHQ project was highly visible during the 10th TourMIS Users’ Workshop & International Seminar on Knowledge Sharing for Tourism Destinations. The Annual TourMIS workshop attracts tourism academics and practitioners that use tourism statistical indicators from all around Europe. The 2014 TourMIS workshop is the 10th in its series and co-organized by major European travel organizations such as the European Travel Commission (ETC), the United Nation World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), European Cities Marketing (ECM) and MODUL University Vienna. Taking advantage of this workshop, we organized a set of events:
On September 11th, during the discussion of future developments for TourMIS, Dr. Marta Sabou and Dr. Irem Arsal presented the major outputs of ETIHQ and their relevance for the further development of TourMIS. The talk was entitled: From Multi-Domain Statistical Data to Complex Decisions and Actions: A Linked Data based Approach.
On September 11th, the talk describing ETIHQ has been followed by a brainstorming and feedback session where participants to the talk were asked for their feedback both by using a short survey and through open discussion. The major conclusions of this feedback session will be made public soon.
On September 12the, Prof. Arno Scharl presented the capabilities of the webLyzard framework used by ETIHQ for decision support in his talk entitled: A Big Data Approach to Knowledge Integration and Visualization for Tourism Destinations.
