Semantic Web technologies gain more and more interest in the area of
Information technologies. At present, one of the biggest challenges is
to integrate texts and pictures available on the Web into a structured
Simplified it can be said that in a Semantic Web contents are augmented
with annotations which describe the meaning of the different data
fields and thus make the data fields machine-understandable. This
allows the use of intelligent search engines and automated processing
of even complex transactions.
The EU Network of Excellence REWERSE (REasoning on the WEb with Rules
and SEmantics) faces this challenge and aims at providing the Web with
a set of interoperable rule languages. In particular the fields of
Business Rules for e-commerce, e-contracting, access authentication,
conflict resolution, and user profile management – to name only a few –
are influenced by these rules in a sustained manner and thus they can
meet the requirements of the new Web generation in a better way.
In order to present results and efforts and to create a forum for
companies and research institutions, REWERSE, in cooperation with the
EU Network of Excellence Knowledge Web, will hold the Semantic Web Days
on October 6 and 7, 2005 in Munich (http://semantic-web-days.net).
The aim of this two-day event is to present the latest Semantic Web
technologies which are very promising or even already in use. The
Semantic Web Days will furthermore offer a forum of exchange for
innovative companies and research institutions focussing on Semantic
Workshops and keynotes addressing the latest trends in the field of
Semantic Web technologies give participants the opportunity to bring
themselves up-to-date with important IT developments. The exhibition
area offers companies as well as researchers the chance to present
their ideas and results. The 2-day event offers a special highlight
with the concluding panel discussion on "Earning Money with Semantic
Web technologies - examples of best practice and outlook for promising
projects of the future”. Representatives from Oracle, W3C, Gartner
Group and Audi AG will debate about the ROI of semantic technologies as
there are still no agreements on important questions such as "which
investments are rentable?" or "which business models are possible on
the basis of semantic technologies?".
Questions like these are now increasingly coming up everywhere. They
are not only a sign of healthy scepticism but also an indication that
semantic systems are getting into the focus of business interests.
