Asian Semantic Web School
The Asian Semantic Web School aims to teach its attendees how to apply semantic technologies in their own projects and environments. The school is targeted at PhD students, young researchers and other interested parties affiliated to academia or industry. It is particularly our goal to bring together international experts in the field and to invite the leading research groups in Asia to be part of the program.
Presentations by renowned experts in the field will introduce the core technologies of the Semantic Web:
- Standard knowledge representation languages such as Resource Description Framework (RDF) or Web Ontology Language (OWL), including tools for exploiting their reasoning capabilities.
- Principles, methods and tools to build and manage ontologies and model domain knowledge.
- The current directions in Semantic Web Services, in particular the Web Service Modeling Ontology (WSMO) and the related Web Service Modeling Language (WSML) and Web Service Execution Environment (WSMX).
Tutorials, hands-on sessions and exercises will provide additional insights into these topics and guide the students in applying the technologies in particular situations. These learning modules will be complemented by invited talks which report on the deployment of semantic technologies in real-world business scenarios, handed over by representatives of established semantic technology vendors and early adopters.
The Asian School on the Semantic Web will be held between December, 8 - 12, 2008 in Thailand, in parallel to the ASWC 2008 conference.
