Communities of Practice and Semantic Web Stimulating Collaboration by Document Markup

Abstract

We believe that mathematics is the language of science and has paved the way of many innovations. However, mathematical research is often said to be “non-practical” and “hard to digest”. Furthermore, experts have access to highly specialized results, but are often less aware of applications outside their own community. Our work promotes the exchange of highly-specialized knowledge between individuals with different mathematical background. We draw on modern representation formats tomark up structure andmeaning ofmathematical texts to reduce barriers of communication.Moreover,we integrate modern web technologies to build an adaptive, active, and collaborative environment, in which users engage in a community of practice.
