ISWC Workshop
Semantic Web Case Studies and Best Practices for eBusiness


The Semantic Web reaches stability in its lower layers with the
existence of standards and the upcoming availability of basic
technologies and trialed applications. Still, the success of the
Semantic Web depends on its capability to deploy in a commercial
setting. While a variety of events exists on the foundations and
engineering of Semantic Web technologies, this workshop complements
these with a forum to learn and discuss about the actual realization
of the Semantic Web with applications.
The workshop will focus on question of deploying Semantic Web
technologies in real business applications. It will call for work on
use cases for Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services, on experience
reports on commercial deployment and on best practices in doing
so. The goals are to provide a forum to exchange knowledge on Semantic
Web deployment, the best paths to do so, and the real world obstacles
to be considered and on overall cost/benefit expectations and
The workshop can be considered an outreach activity of the academic
Semantic Web community to industry to encourage the take-up of
research results. At the same time, it is an inreach event as a forum
for practitioners to enter industry requirements on further research
into the academic research agenda.
