This is the 2nd edition of the Solid Symposium, following the first edition in 2023 in Nuremberg.

The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for early adopters from companies and public administration, researchers and the community at large to discuss the current state of the art around Solid, learn about best practices and exchange ideas for further developments.

Call for session proposals

The symposium will have limited plenary talks and will largely consist of half or full day sessions. Several sessions can be held in parallel. Proposals for session are welcome now.

Call for sponsors

Sponsor packages are available and encouraged for companies.


Registration for the symposium will open closer to the date.

Solid Community Code of Conduct

We as members of the Solid community pledge to make participation in our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, visible or invisible disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, caste, color, religion, or sexual identity and orientation. We pledge to act and interact in ways that contribute to an open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy community.

In addition we adhere to the Positive Work Environment at W3C: Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
