Hi Semantic Web and/or User Interaction researchers,

I am currently carrying out a survey on semantic search and would  
really appreciate your opinion and contribution. The goal of the  
survey is to provide an overview of the different notions of text  
based search on the semantic web, also known as semantic search.

We have started compiling a list of systems that provide access to  
semantic web data through a graphical user interface. We are  
interested in systems that provide some form of free text search, in  
addition to those that include different forms of browsing.

Secondly, we analyze the systems in three different stages of the  
search process: input, processing and search results, as well as the  
role of user feedback within these. For each of these we consider the  
functionality that the system provides and how this is made available  
through the graphical user interface.

Our findings so far are available at:

Our intention is to use the raw data as the basis for a survey paper  
on semantic search to be submitted to ISWC07.

If you have any comments, suggestions or additions please send an  
email to <michiel.hildebrand@cwi.nl>.
