About these proceedings

Introduction

The emergence of Web technologies for data and knowledge interaction gives rise to the need for supportive frameworks for knowledge distribution. Semantic Web technologies aim at providing shared semantic spacesfor Web contents, such that people, applications and communities can use a common platform to share information. Also, many of the challenging aspects of the research problems tackled in the Semantic Web area fall in the realm of artificial intelligence or employment of AI techniques.

Canadian Semantic Web: Technologies and Applications is an edited volume contributed by worldwide leaders in Semantic Web research, and was based on the May 2009, Canadian Semantic Web Symposium, Kelowna, BC. This volume will introduce the most advanced working theories, prototypes and applications on; AI technologies in the Semantic Web, Languages, tools and methodologies for the Semantic Web, Searching, querying, visualizing and interpreting the Semantic Web, Semantic Web-based Knowledge Management, Semantic Grid and semantic Grid services, Trust, privacy, security on the Semantic Web and more. A special focus on applications of semantic web technology on electronic health.
