***APOLOGIES FOR MULTIPLE POSTINGS***
THE THIRD EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL ON ONTOLOGICAL ENGINEERING AND
THE SEMANTIC WEB (SSSW-2005)
Cercedilla, near Madrid, Spain.
10-16, July 2005
Registration will open on February 1st, 2005.
The KnowledgeWeb Network of Excellence is pleased to announce the third European
Summer School on Ontological Engineering and the Semantic Web. This summer
school, presented by leading researchers in the field, is the successor to the
well-received schools held in 2003, as part of the activities of the OntoWeb
Network Consortium, and in 2004, as part of the activities of the KnowledgeWeb
NoE. The school represents an opportunity for postgraduate students to equip
themselves with the range of theoretical and practical skills necessary for full
engagement with the challenges involved in developing Ontologies and Semantic
Web applications. To ensure a high ratio between tutors and students the school
will be limited to 50 participants.
To avoid a passive learning experience we will augment theoretical material with
practical workshops. Furthermore, we will ensure that the sessions are
complementary to each other by linking them to a mini-project. Work on
developing and presenting this project in cooperation with other participants
will serve as a means of consolidating the knowledge and skills gained from
lectures and practical sessions.
Participants will be provided with a copy of all course lectures and access to a
PC with all necessary tools and environments pre-installed.
SSSW-2005 will provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment in which
participants will benefit not only from the formal and practical sessions but
also from informal and social interactions with established researchers and the
other participants in the school.
