Foundations of Semantic Web Technologies

Summer Term 2014

Course Description

Ontologies are currently becoming the major paradigm for knowledge representation and reasoning. Their success is driven by the Semantic Web effort, but there is also considerable use outside the Web context, e. g. in information integration or life sciences. In this course, we will present an in-depth treatment of the ontology representation languages RDF and OWL as well as associated query languages which are recommended standards by the World Wide Web consortium.

Lecturer:  Prof.  Sebastian Rudolph

Module:  MCL-KR, MCL-PI
