Semantic Web and Peer-to-Peer
Staab · Stuckenschmidt (Eds.)
http://www.springer.com/sgw/cda/frontpage/0,11855,1-40109-22-72040370-0,00.html

Just as the industrial society of the last century depended on natural resources, today’s
society depends on information and its exchange.
Semantic Web technologies address the problem of information complexity by providing
advanced support for representing and processing distributed information, while peer-to-peer
technologies address issues of system complexity by allowing flexible and decentralized
information storage and processing. Systems that are based on Semantic Web and
peer-to-peer technologies promise to combine the advantages of the two mechanisms.
A peer-to-peer style architecture for the Semantic Web will avoid both physical and semantic
bottlenecks that limit information and knowledge exchange.

Staab and Stuckenschmidt structured the selected contributions into four parts: Part I,
“Data Storage and Access”, prepares the semantic foundation, i.e. data modelling and
querying in a flexible and yet scalable manner. These foundations allow for dealing with
the organization of information at the individual peers. Part II,“Querying the Network”,
considers the routing of queries, as well as continuous queries and personalized queries
under the conditions of the permanently changing topological structure of a peer-to-peer
network. Part III, “Semantic Integration”, deals with the mapping of heterogeneous data
representations. Finally Part IV, “Methodology and Systems”, reports experiences from
case studies and sample applications.
The overall result is a state-of-the-art description of the potential of Semantic Web and
peer-to-peer technologies for information sharing and knowledge management when
applied jointly.
