Semantic Web for Collaborative Knowledge Acquisition:
Papers from the AAAI Fall Symposium
Vasant Honavar and Tim Finin, Cochairs
Recent advances in computing, communications together with the rapid proliferation of information sources and services present unprecedented opportunities in integrative and collaborative analysis and interpretation of distributed, autonomous (and hence, inevitably semantically heterogeneous) data and knowledge sources and services in virtually every area of human activity. This symposium brought together researchers in relevant areas of artificial intelligence, databases, knowledge bases, machine learning, information integration, ontologies, semantic web, web services, and relevant application areas (such as bioinformatics, environmental informatics, enterprise informatics e-science, e-government, medical informatics, security informatics, social informatics, among others) to share recent advances in the state of the art in semantic web technologies for such applications.
