We present an application called Konf-Connect to improve the conference attending experience of the people who attend a conference. This tool provides search facilities to nd people with similar interests. The application makes use of Semantic Web dog food dataset to gather information regarding the conference at hand. This is helpful for people attending the conference who are looking for networking opportunities with people having expertise in the specic areas of interest. The application can also be extended to be used as general purpose expert search system.
