Programme

Monday 21 April

Tutorials

13.00-17.00
Introduction to semantic technology
An example-driven introduction to semantic technology is provided. Focusing on examples from the Oil & Gas industry, we present the fundamentals from semantic modelling methodology, techniques and tool support.
Magne Valen-Sendstad, Chief Principal Engineer, DNV
Arild Waaler, Professor, University of Oslo
13.00-17.00
Semantic Web technologies for knowledge management in large distributed organizations
Introduces challenges and semantic solutions for acquiring, sharing and applying knowledge in large organization, stressing the role of domain-specific ontologies for effective knowledge management. Real-world examples are used to illustrate ontology methods, tools and applications for handling vast amounts of technical knowledge in high-tech industries.
Fabio Ciravegna, Professor, University of Sheffield, UK
13.00-17.00
Technologies for semantic interoperability in SOA systems
Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) is an enabling technology for interoperability between networked enterprise systems. Further support for semantic interoperability can be provided through use of common ontologies and mediation support by semantic web services, model-based development and agent technologies.
Dr Klaus Fisher, DFKI, Germany
Arne-Jørgen Berre, Chief Research Scientist, SINTEF
