Edited by: Jorge Cardoso, SAP Research, Germany and Miltiadis Lytras, Athens
University of Economics and Business, Greece



Semantics and ontologies offer an extension to traditional information
systems in which information is given well-defined meaning, enabling
computers and people to work in cooperation. With expanding uses and
integrations of semantics and ontologies, research in Semantic Web
engineering has grown immensely. 

Semantic Web Engineering in the Knowledge Society brings together
contributions from researchers and scientists from both industry and
academia and representatives from different communities for the
understanding and exploration of the theories, tools, and applications of
semantics and ontologies. This authoritative reference serves as the
platform for exchange of both practical technologies and far reaching
implications, offering academicians and practitioners a compendium of
knowledge in Semantic Web engineering.


"This book lays the foundations for understanding the concepts and
technologies behind the Semantic Web." 

- Jorge Cardoso, SAP Research, Germany
