Now it roughly reaches the maturity level for teaching and training. There are quite some of the efforts on such direction, such as Knowledge Web which has an education cluster focusing on education and training in Europe, and EASTWEB which is funded by European Commission aiming on education and training transfer between Europe and Asia. This workshop aims at gathering and confronting experiences about teaching, disseminating and providing training on the Semantic Web, including both practical activities on teaching (academy) and training (industry). Reports about initiatives in these directions are solicited. Especially valuable will be examples of transnational cooperation it these areas (including reports about experiences gathered in summer schools). ================ GENERAL OVERVIEW ================ This workshop is part of the series of thematic workshops planned under the EASTWEB project. The objective is to give first of all the opportunity to both Asian and European researchers coming from academia, industry, and interested application communities to communicate problems, requirements and solutions within different areas; to exchange working experiences. Secondly, to give the possibility to the different communities to learn about the latest research developments in this field. It will provide the opportunity to disseminate the results to the larger Semantic Web community in the form of edited books. Thirdly, to allow students and researchers from the universities and research centers from all over the world to present their work to an academic and industrial audience. From educational and scientific management perspective, the workshop would also help to ensure the efficient and effective operation of the activities regarding Semantic Web Education and Training in consultation with the education and scientific working group leaders. The major actions to advocate resources and programs to build a competitive and cutting edge educational and scientific consortium and to develop and articulate a vision for the future of the Semantic Web, acting to maintain as frontier of international research and proposing initiatives to build upon Semantic Web results. =============== INVITED SPEAKER =============== Prof. Fausto Giunchiglia, Department of Information and Communication Technology at University of Trento, Italy ================== TOPICS OF INTEREST ================== The main topics of interest include but are not restricted to following: .
