Well it's customary here to meet once a week for a 3-h period but I'll try
work two 1.5-h sessions, meaning to cover content in the first and hold lab
during the second. The grad courses in our system normally don't include lab
though. I normally assign a project for by the end-of-semester submission. 

Thanks for great suggestions.

Cheers,

I think I'd go for the 3 days of actual meeting and two days of manifesto
writing. I have a tendency twoards less being more, but if folk think five
days can be filled sensibly then  I'm open to persusion.

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.
