Abstract

The Semantic Web will bring structure to the content of Web pages, being an extension of the current Web, in which information is given a well-defined meaning. Especially within e-commerce applications, Semantic Web technologies in the form of ontologies and metadata are becoming increasingly prevalent and important. This paper introduce KAON—the Karlsruhe Ontology and Semantic Web Tool Suite. KAON is developed jointly within several EU-funded projects and specifically designed to provide the ontology and metadata infrastructure needed for building, using and accessing semantics-driven applications on the Web and on your desktop.
