CONFOTO is a semantic browsing and annotation service for conference photos. It combines recent Web trends with the advantages of Semantic Web platforms. The service offers several tools to upload, link, browse and annotate pictures. Simple forms can be used to create multilingual titles, tags, or descriptions, while more advanced forms allow the relation of pictures to events, persons, ratings, and copyright information. CONFOTO provides tailored and interlinked browsers for photos, people, events, and documents. Remotely maintained photo descriptions can be added to the local knowledge base, data re-use is made possible via customizable syndication functions and a query interface.
