Objectives Top

The explosion of data caused by the success of the Internet has positioned 'semantics' as a core topic for declarative descriptions of data and services. Semantic descriptions enable interoperability of data and aim at supporting the dynamic fusion of data and services among a multitude of applications.

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 cooperations. This workshop is intends to bring together researchers and practitioners from the mentioned areas and to act as a platfrom for discussions for experiences and visions.
