ISWC 2008 - Karlsruhe   

7th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Karlsruhe 2008

ISWC is a major international forum where visionary and state-of-the-art research of all aspects of the Semantic Web are presented.

The Web continues to grow and new technologies, modes of interactions, and applications are being developed. Building on this growth, Semantic Web technologies aim at providing a shared semantic information space, changing qualitatively our experiences on the Web. As Semantic Web technologies mature and permeate more and more application areas, new research challenges are coming to the fore and some unsolved ones are becoming more acute. These issues include creating and managing Semantic Web content, making Semantic Web applications robust and scalable, organizing and integrating information from different sources for novel uses, making semantics explicit in order to improve our overall experience with information technologies, and thus enabling us to use the wealth of information that is currently available in digital form for addressing our everyday tasks.

To foster the exchange of ideas and collaboration, ISWC brings together researchers in relevant disciplines such as artificial intelligence, databases, social networks, distributed computing, web engineering, information systems, natural language processing, soft computing, and human-computer interaction.

I liked this article about the research track of the ISWC 2008. It is a useful and interesting resource for anyone who is curious about the semantic web and its developments. The video lectures are well-delivered and cover a variety of topics and issues in the semantic web field. The slides and abstracts are also helpful and concise. I learned a lot from this article, and I would suggest it to anyone who wants to know more about the semantic web.
