Semantic Web 2.0: Creating Social Semantic Information Spaces
John Breslin, Stefan Decker
This tutorial will give an overview of current proposals in the Semantic Web area for adding semantics to emerging and established communications media such as blogging and wikis. We will also cover the usage of Semantic Web technologies for community portals. We will discuss current standardisation activities as well as research prototypes. Additional topics to be covered include semantic search based on metadata and large scale data integration as well as semantics in digital libraries. Finally, we will discuss and present current approaches to realise the ideas of Vannevar Bush and Doug Engelbart on distributed collaboration infrastructures, which we term Social Semantic Information Spaces.
