PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT

THE THIRD EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL ON ONTOLOGICAL 
ENGINEERING AND THE SEMANTIC WEB (SSSW-2005)

http://babage.dia.fi.upm.es/sssw05

VENUE
Cercedilla, near Madrid, Spain.

DATE
10-16, July 2005

Registration will open on February 1st, 2005.


INTRODUCTION
The KnowledgeWeb Network of Excellence is pleased 
to announce the third European Summer School on 
Ontological Engineering and the Semantic Web. 
This summer school, presented by leading 
researchers in the field, is the successor to the 
well-received schools held in 2003, as part of 
the activities of the OntoWeb Network Consortium, 
and in 2004, as part of the activities of the 
KnowledgeWeb NoE.  The school represents an 
opportunity for postgraduate students to equip 
themselves with the range of theoretical and 
practical skills necessary for full engagement 
with the challenges involved in developing 
Ontologies and Semantic Web applications. To 
ensure a high ratio between tutors and students 
the school will be limited to 50 participants.


APPROACH
To avoid a passive learning experience we will 
augment theoretical material with practical 
workshops. Furthermore, we will ensure that the 
sessions are complementary to each other by 
linking them to a mini-project. Work on 
developing and presenting this project in 
cooperation with other participants will serve as 
a means of consolidating the knowledge and skills 
gained from lectures and practical sessions.

Participants will be provided with a copy of all 
course lectures and access to a PC with all 
necessary tools and environments pre-installed.

SSSW-2005 will provide a stimulating and 
enjoyable environment in which participants will 
benefit not only from the formal and practical 
sessions but also from informal and social 
interactions with established researchers and the 
other participants in the school.


ACCOMMODATION AND SOCIAL EVENTS
Cercedilla is a small village in the mountains 
near Madrid. The school will be held in the 
Universidad Politécnica de Madrid's student house.
The student house has a range of facilities to 
make your stay more pleasant including en suite 
bathrooms, swimming pool, bars and restaurants in 
the village.

There will be an afternoon excursion to a local 
tourist destination. Both this and a gala dinner 
will be included in the cost.


PARTICIPANTS
We welcome applicants from anywhere in the world. 
Normally applicants will be first or second year 
postgraduate students in relevant disciplines 
with some knowledge of ontological or knowledge 
engineering and/or the development of 
applications for the World Wide Web. Some basic 
acquaintance with knowledge representation is 
required.
