I have a PhD scholarship available for a project in applying Semantic 
Web technologies (RDF, Sparql, Annotea) to the Linguistic Annotation 
problem. Here’s a brief outline:

Shared collaborative distributed annotation using semantic web technologies.

The Semantic Web augments the current Web with machine-processable 
information enabling humans and machines to work in cooperation; in our 
context, we are using it as the basis of a linguistic annotation system 
that is used by language researchers to annotate language resources. 
This project will look at the issues raised when we allow many people to 
collaborate on authoring these annotations and making shared annotations 
available to a community of researchers. This crosses a number of 
existing areas of research including the semantic web and social 
computing, and extends the range of interactions available to 
researchers over the web.

Of course, as usual there is scope for variation on this theme, if 
you’re interested in this problem space and want to pursue a PhD in 
Australia, please get in touch. The scholarship is open to Australians 
and International students.

Details of the terms and conditions and application procedure are 
available at:

Please contact me if you would like to discuss this opportunity.
