Event in series International ExpertFinder Workshop
3nd International ExpertFinder Workshop: PICKME2008 (Personal Identification and Collaborations: Knowledge Mediation and Extraction) Karlsruhe, Germany, October 2008, co-located with the 7th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2008).
ExpertFinder is an emerging collaborative initiative with the aim of devising vocabularies, rule extensions (e.g. for FOAF and SIOC) and best practices to annotate personal and organisational web pages, as well as web pages with personal or organisational data, e.g. blogs, wikis, conferences, publication indexes, etc., with adequate metadata to enable computer agents to find experts on particular topics.
Following on from two successful workshops, the latter at ISWC2007, we aim to solicit new research from the Semantic Web community applying annotation, knowledge extraction, ontology engineering, reasoning and ontology mediation techniques to the task of finding people and their interactions with other people on the Web, formally representing and reusing that knowledge to support new services such as expert finding. ExpertFinder's goal is to enable a Web-scale infrastructure for the creation, publication and use of experts' semantic descriptions to support expert finding scenarios such as group management, disaster response, recruitment, team building, problem solving and on-the-fly consultation.
