***APOLOGIES FOR MULTIPLE POSTINGS*** ======================================= PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT THE THIRD EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL ON ONTOLOGICAL ENGINEERING AND THE SEMANTIC WEB (SSSW-2005) http://babage.dia.fi.upm.es/sssw05 VENUE Cercedilla, near Madrid, Spain. DATE 10-16, July 2005 Registration will open on February 1st, 2005. INTRODUCTION 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. APPROACH 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. ACCOMMODATION AND SOCIAL EVENTS Cercedilla is a small village in the mountains near Madrid. The school will be held in the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid's student house. The student house has a range of facilities to make your stay more pleasant including en suite bathrooms, swimming pool, bars and restaurants in the village. There will be an afternoon excursion to a local tourist destination. Both this and a gala dinner will be included in the cost. PARTICIPANTS We welcome applicants from anywhere in the world. Normally applicants will be first or second year postgraduate students in relevant disciplines with some knowledge of ontological or knowledge engineering and/or the development of applications for the World Wide Web. Some basic acquaintance with knowledge representation is required.
