Event in series SSSW
The KnowledgeWeb Network of Excellence (http://knowledgeweb.semanticweb.org/) is pleased to announce the second European Summer School on Ontological Engineering and the Semantic Web. This summer school, presented by leading researchers in the field, is the successor to the well-received school held in 2003 as part of the activities of the OntoWeb Network Consortium (http:// www.ontoweb.org). The school represents an opportunity for postgraduate students to equip themselves with the range of theoretical and practical skills necessary for full engagement with the challenges involved in developing Ontologies and Semantic Web applications. Given the high degree of interest in this new field, candidates will need to book early to avoid disappointment. The school will be limited to 50 participants.
SSSW-2004, following the model set by its predecessor, will have a practical orientation. To this end theoretical material will be augmented with hands-on workshops in which appropriate tools will be introduced and used to explore theoretical ideas. Furthermore, we will ensure that the theoretical sessions complement each other by linking them to a mini-project. Work on developing and presenting this project in cooperation with other participants will serve as a means of consolidating the knowledge and skills gained from lectures and practical sessions.
Participants will be provided with a copy of all course lectures and access to a PC with all the necessary tools and environments pre-installed.
