The purpose of this paper is to provide a rigorous comparison of six query languages for RDF. We outline and categorize features that any RDF query language should provide and compare the individual languages along these features. We describe several practical usage examples for RDF queries and conclude with a comparison of the expressiveness of the particular query languages. The use cases, sample data and queries for the respective languages are available on the web [6]. 
A Comparison of RDF Query Languages
This paper will present a comparison of current RDF-based query languages by putting forward query languages that represent a broad spectrum of architectural approaches to querying RDF-based data.Expand
RDF Query Languages Need Support for Graph Properties
This short paper discusses the need to include into RDF query languages the ability to directly query graph properties from RDF data. We study the support that current RDF query languages give toExpand
Querying RDF Data
TLDR
This chapter provides an introduction to the RDF language as well as surveys the languages that can be used for querying RDF graphs and provides a comparison between these query languages. Expand
An RDF Query and Transformation Language
RDF Query Language proposals are numerous. However, the most prominent proposals are query languages that were conceived as first generation tryouts of RDF querying, with little or no RDF-specificExpand
An Extension of SPARQL for RDFS
TLDR
A language for querying RDFS data is introduced, obtained by extending SPARQL with nested regular expression that is expressive enough to answer SParQL queries involving RdfS vocabulary, by directly traversing the input graph. Expand
Evaluating RDF Querying Frameworks for Document Metadata
TLDR
An evaluation of different RDF querying methods in the context of document metadata is presented and how well current RDF frameworks can deal with this particular kind of RDF graphs is investigated. Expand
An RDF Query Language based on Logic Programming
TLDR
This paper investigates an extension of XQuery for querying (and inferring) from RDF documents with construction of answers and boolean predicates for RDF entailment relationship inference. Expand
Querying RDF Data from a Graph Database Perspective
TLDR
This paper studies the RDF model from a database perspective, focuses on query languages, analyze current RDF trends, and proposes the incorporation to RDF query languages of primitives which are not present today, based on the experience and techniques of graph database research. Expand
Web and Semantic Web Query Languages: A Survey
TLDR
The spectrum of languages falling into three categories of Web query languages, according to the format of the data they can retrieve, is introduced and summarises their salient aspects. Expand
Web and Semantic Web Query Languages
TLDR
The spectrum of languages falling into these categories of Web query languages is introduced, according to the format of the data they can retrieve: XML, RDF and Topic Maps. Expand

Three Implementations of SquishQL, a Simple RDF Query Language
TLDR
A conceptual model for querying RDF data that refines ideas first presented in at the W3C workshop on Query Languages and the design of one possible syntax, derived from [7], that is suitable for application programmers are described. Expand
SeRQL: An RDF Query and Transformation Language
TLDR
This paper introduces a set of general requirements for an RDF query language, compiled from discussions between RDF implementors, experience and user feedback, and concludes that SeRQL can be considered a real second generation RDF querying and transformation language. Expand
Foundations of semantic web databases
TLDR
This work proposes a query language with well-defined semantics and study the complexity of query processing, query containment, and simplification of answers, including computational aspects of testing entailment and redundancy. Expand
RQL: a declarative query language for RDF
TLDR
A new RDF query language called RQL is proposed, which is a typed functional language (a la OQL) and relies on a formal model for directed labeled graphs permitting the interpretation of superimposed resource descriptions by means of one or more RDF schemas. Expand
SeRQL: A Second Generation RDF Query Language
TLDR
This position paper introduces a set of general requirements for an RDF query language, compiled from discussions between RDF implementors, experience and user feedback, and goes on to show how these requirements have been compiled into drafting the SeRQL query language. Expand
Design issues and challenges for RDF- and schema-based peer-to-peer systems
TLDR
This discussion will be based on the design decisions employed in the Edutella infrastructure, a schema-based P2P network based on RDF and RDF schemas, and will also point out additional work addressing the issues discussed. Expand
Logical foundations of object-oriented and frame-based languages
We propose a novel formalism, called Frame Logic (abbr., F-logic), that accounts in a clean and declarative fashion for most of the structural aspects of object-oriented and frame-based languages.Expand
