Special Session
Semantic Web Applications and Tools - SWAT 2011
Joaquim Filipe
Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal / INSTICC
The Special Session on Semantic Web Applications and Tools (SWAT) aims to assemble researchers and practitioners from diverse backgrounds together to present problems and solutions and to discuss the state-of-the-art in this area in order to try to identify a vision for future developments in the Semantic Web. Machine-readable metadata enabling automated agents and other software to access the Web more intelligently is growing exponentially every year. This is a rich interdisciplinary area that requires both innovative developments in the areas of knowledge representation including descriptive logics, using languages such as RDF or OWL, and web applications with a focus on interoperability, driven by the need to develop internet-based information systems with an explicit domain ontology. SWAT invites quality papers describing original research ideas and new findings on technological aspects of the semantic web, in particular papers describing methods, techniques, recent advances, applications and tools.
All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference and on CD-ROM support.
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/).
