Objectives Top

The workshop consists of two main tracks which are

  1. Ontologies for Networked Systems (ONS) and
  2. Advances in Mobile Learning (AML).

Track ONS: Ontologies provide a shared understanding of a domain of interest to support communication among human and computer agents, typically being represented in a machine-processable representation language. Thus, ontologies are seen as key enablers for the Semantic Web. Recently the convergence of paradigms such as currently being monitored in the areas of Semantic Web, Web Services, Agents, Peer-to-Peer networks and Grid Computing requires multi-disciplinary approaches and cooperation. This workshop is intends to bring together researchers and practitioners from the mentioned areas and to act as a platform for discussions for experiences and visions.

Track AML: Mobile Learning is the use of mobile or wireless devices for learning on the move. The mobile learning aims to improve levels of literacy and participation in education amongst young adults across all nations. The mobile learning makes use of young people's interest in their mobile phones and other handheld communications/entertainment devices to deliver exciting and unusual learning experiences and related messages. The aim of this workshop is to invite researchers from various fields to present and discuss their ideas on the mobile learning.

The workshop is being held in cooperation with two prominent networks of excellence and is meant to act as a focal point for joint interests and future collaborations:
