AST 2006 - Applications of Semantic Technologies

1st International AST Workshop located at the Informatik 2006
5-6 October, 2006 (Workshop days), Dresden, Germany

http://km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/ws/ast2006

Organized by Pascal Hitzler and York Sure, AIFB, University of
Karlsruhe, Germay


Objectives
----------

Semantic Web is a major international research effort with the goal to 
make web content available for intelligent knowledge processing. It 
draws on standard and novel techniques from various disciplines within 
Computer Science, including Knowledge Management, Artificial 
Intelligence, Databases, Internet Technology, Software Agents, 
eCommerce, etc. The methods and tools developed and integrated for this 
purpose – often called Semantic Technologies – are generic and have a 
very large application potential outside the domain of the Semantic Web.

Such applications are currently being investigated in various 
disciplines within Computer Science, including Ambient Intelligence, 
Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledge 
Management, Bioinformatics, etc. We believe that Semantic Technologies 
provide methods and tools which will persist in these and other 
application areas for the foreseeable future.


Program
-------

To ensure a creative atmosphere during the workshop, the participants 
will be selected based on their submitted papers, posing important 
issues to be presented and discussed at the workshop. The workshop will 
consist of short presentations followed by discussions about the goals 
of the workshop: Applications of Semantic Web Technologies and outlining 
a plan for future research. In order to obtain an intensive exchange of 
ideas between the participants, there will be extensive time for discussion.

A final panel will discuss the research agenda for the coming years, 
based on the presentations and results from the demos, evaluations and 
discussions.
