Semantic Web

Semantic web describes data on the web maintaining its semantics in such a way that other web applications may "understand" the meaning of the data with only little effort. Semantic web has developed from a research initiative in the late 20th century into a fast growing infrastructure for application domains, such as bioinformatics or eGovernment. This infrastructure is driven by W3C standards as well as by methods and technologies from a diverse area of computer science disciplines, such as artificial intelligence, databases and human-computer interaction. This course will give an overview and introduction to core and current semantic web technologies, including: 

  • Description Logics;
  • XML, RDF, OWL;
  • Ontologies, ontology engineering, ontology design patterns;
  • SPARQL, named graphs, networked graphs;
  • Linked open data;
  • Information extraction;
  • Semantic Web services

The course "Semantic Web" is part of the "Web Science" track of the Summer Academy 2013 in Koblenz. It is offered as block course from July 4 to July 19.

Required Knowledge

Basic knowledge about about logics and data engineering recommended.

Acquired Competence

The student will be enabled to design and develop semantic Web applications. The student will be enabled to progress Semantic Web technologies in order to broaden and facilitate their use. The student will be enabled to understand the interaction of different standards, their technical implications as well as the social processes that underly various Semantic Web applications.

Exams

For obtaining the credits of the course it is mandatory to take a written exam at the end of the course.

The written exam will be on July 19th at 14:30 and take 60 minutes. The exam will take place in room B.013. 

In order to register for the exam it is necessary to register in KLIPS. Students from the summer academy have to register manually by sending an e-mail to Matthias Thimm (thimm@uni-koblenz.de) indicating the willingness to take the exam.
