Jena Geography Dataset

 

A dataset of about 200 geography services that have been gathered from web sites like seekda.com, xmethods.com, webservicelist.com, programmableweb.com, and geonames.org. The dataset has been built for the retrieval of (semantic) web service technology.

 

OAPT: A Tool for Ontology Analysis and Partitioning

 

Ontologies are considered to be the backbone of the Semantic Web and facilitate sharing, integration, and discovery of data. However, the  number of existing ontologies is vastly growing, which makes it is   problematic for software developers to decide which ontology is suitable for his/her application. Furthermore, even if the input ontology has been examined, a developer is typically interested in just a part of the ontology. To this end, in this demo, we present OAPT, an ontology  analysis and partitioning tool. First, before the input ontology is  partitioned, OAPT analyzes it to determine if this ontology is worth to…

 

S3 Contest on Semantic Service Selection

 

The S3 contest provides means and forum for evaluating the retrieval performance of Semantic Web service matchmakers (recall, precision, F1, response time etc.) over given test collections for most prominent semantic service formats such as OWL-S, WSML and the standard SA-WSDL. Starting from 2009, there is a cross-evaluation track dedicated to the evaluation of matchmakers across formalisms: JGDEval.

 

Semantic Web Services Challenge

 

The Semantic Web Services Challenge is an international initiative organized primarily by the Logic Group at Stanford University, STI Innsbruck, Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, and TU Dortmund. The goal of the SWS Challenge is to develop a common understanding of various technologies intended to facilitate the automation of mediation, choreography and discovery for Web Services using semantic annotations. The intent of this challenge is to explore the trade-offs among existing approaches. Additionally we would like to figure out which parts of problem space may not yet be covered. Our most important service is that we provide a certification of SOA (Service Oriented…

 

TDWG 2014 Workshop: How to Teach Data Management in Biodiversity Effectively

 

What it is about In recent years there have been a number of initiatives to provide scientists with proper data management tools for biodiversity data. No matter how sophisticated these tools are, there still seems to be a gap between the technical capabilities of these systems and the scientists’ acceptance and willingness to use these tools. Being aware that this issue needs to be addressed from both sides, with this workshop we would like to focus on the users only. We would like to bring together practitioners in research data management, experts in capacity building and training, university lecturers, and…

 

TDWG 2014 Workshop: Software solutions for data management in biodiversity research projects

 

What it is about       In this open workshop producers of software for managing biodiversity data will get the floor to introduce their solution. In the first part, we  invite to a joint session where all participating software producers may introduce their data management solution in a short presentation (10min).   Within the second part, a series of parallel sessions shall be held for a more in-depth (perhaps hands-on) demonstration of those individual products that have been introduced earlier.   We invite all producers of tools and software for managing, sharing and archiving research data in the biodiversity…

 

Tutorial on Evaluation of Semantic Web Technologies at ESWC 2009

 

Sixth European Semantic Web Conference ESWC 2009, Heraklion, Greece. Duration: Half Day Date: Sunday, 31.05.2009 Abstract Roughly 10 years after the vision of the Semantic Web was first presented, Semantic Web Technologies have become a well-established pillar of computer science research. With the increasing number of technologies being developed, the problem of how to compare and evaluate the various approaches gains more and more importance. Such evaluation is critical not only for future scientific progress, but also for the industrial adoption of the developed technologies. This tutorial presents the state of the art of Semantic Web technology evaluation. It is…

 

Tutorial on Evaluation of Semantic Web Technologies at ESWC 2010

 

Seventh European Semantic Web Conference ESWC 2009, Heraklion, Greece. Duration: Half Day Date: 30/31.05.2010 This event is supported by the SEALS project. Abstract Semantic Web Technologies have become a well-established pillar of computer science research. With the increasing number of technologies being developed, the problem of how to compare and evaluate the various approaches gains more importance. Such evaluation is critical not only for future scientific progress, but also for the industrial adoption of the developed technologies. This tutorial presents the state of the art of Semantic Web technology evaluation. It is targeted at researchers and practitioners interested in learning…
