A WWW2005 Workshop
Activities on Semantic Web Technologies in Japan

http://www.intap.or.jp/www2005/index.html

Tuesday May 10, 2005
Chiba(Makuhari Messe), Japan

(1).Workshop Topic and Content
The Semantic Web is a new Web technology that has potentiality of 
innovating the existing information society. In Japan, research 
institutes and industries are advancing various research projects on the 
Semantic Web and developing various practical applications.
In this workshop, each of presenters will speak about outlines of their 
research projects or practical applications on the Semantic Web in 
Japan, including some demonstrations of software. One of the purposes of 
the workshop is introducing Japanese activities in the Semantic Web 
field to other country’s participants, as the host country.
There have been a series of specifications and several tools that will 
become the basis of the spread of the Semantic Web. Currently, the 
emergences of some application systems that will open the door for 
further spread and dissemination of the Semantic Web are eagerly 
anticipated. During the workshop, presenters will introduce various 
breakthrough research projects and practical applications on the 
Semantic Web and share their significant knowledge and experiences. 
Through the workshop, we intend to contribute further spread and 
dissemination of the Semantic Web technology.
