This workshop will address ontologies for the semantic web. The notion of the semantic web as promoted by Tim Berners-Lee and by Jim Hendler as the focus of a major DARPA-funded research effort, is to transform the current World Wide Web so that the information and services are understandable and useable by computers as well as humans. The Semantic Web will create an environment where software agents can readily perform sophisticated tasks and help humans find, understand, integrate, and use information. The key distinguishing feature of the Semantic Web will be ontologies which will enable software agents to find the meaning of the information on Web pages by following hyperlinks to definitions of key terms and rules for reasoning about them logically.
