Hi Atilla,

I will be teaching a new module on semantic web next semester and I have decided to go with a combination of the following:

[1] A Semantic Web Primer
By Paul Groth, Frank van Harmelen, Rinke Hoekstra

[2] Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL
Dean Allemang, James Hendler

[3] Foundations of Semantic Web Technologies
By Pascal Hitzler, Markus Krotzsch, Sebastian Rudolph

[4] Linked Data: Evolving the Web Into a Global Data Space
By Tom Heath, Christian Bizer

[1] gives a good overview of the various technologies (RDF, RDFS, SPARQL, OWL, Ontologies and Rules) and how they fit together. However, it only scratches the surface, therefore I would suggest [2] as a practical guide for developing applications using these technologies and [3] for a more in-dept look at the theory underpinning them.
Whereas [4] gives an excellent overview, how these technologies and others are being used to build a web of data.
Both [1] and [3] have exercises at the end of each chapter.

I would be interesting in knowing what others are using.
Regards,
Sabrina

This might be suitable for a computer science course, but as the name suggests is focused on foundations.

@Book{FOST, author = {Pascal Hitzler and Markus Kr{\"o}tzsch and Sebastian Rudolph}, title = {Foundations of Semantic Web Technologies}, year = {2009}, publisher = {Chapman \&{} Hall/CRC} }

Hi all,
What would be a good textbook on semantic Web technology and applications for an intro grad course? If no suitable textbook is available, then please suggest suitable books for reading assignments.
Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Atilla Elci, PhD.
