Weaving a Web of linked resources

  title={Weaving a Web of linked resources},
  author={Fabien L. Gandon and Marta Sabou and Harald Sack},
  journal={Semantic Web},
This editorial introduces the special issue based on the best papers from ESWC 2015. And since ESWC'15 marked 15 years of Semantic Web research, we extended this editorial to a position paper that reflects the path that we, as a community, traveled so far with the goal of transforming the Web of Pages to a Web of Resources. We discuss some of the key challenges, research topics and trends addressed by the Semantic Web community in its journey. We conclude that the symbiotic relation of our… 

Figures from this paper

Towards an Ontology for Toponyms in Nepalese Historical Documents

A proof of concept for an ontology for Nepalese toponyms that provides the means to classify toponyms attested in the documents and to model their entanglement with other toponyms, persons, events, and time is described.

Semantic Embeddings for OWL 2 Ontologies

It is demonstrated that by using the embeddings and the provided anchors, it is possible to find new mappings between two ontologies, and to give ontology matching systems an additional similarity score that could help such systems to decide if a potential mapping is valid.

Supporting domain modeling with automated knowledge acquisition and modeling recommendations

Novel methods and tools that provide domain information directly during modeling are developed to reduce the initial effort of using domain modeling and to help software developers create domain models.



Challenges in Bridging Social Semantics and Formal Semantics on the Web

The approaches introduced here rely on graph-oriented knowledge representation, reasoning and operationalization to model and support actors, actions and interactions in web-based epistemic communities.

The World-Wide Web

This chapter discusses the history and growth of World Wide Web (W3), which was developed to be a pool of human knowledge, which would allow collaborators in remote sites to share their ideas and all aspects of a common project.

Crowdsourcing and the Semantic Web: A Research Manifesto

A roadmap to guide the evolution of the new research field that is emerging at the intersection between crowdsourcing and the Semantic Web is defined, and a list of successful or promising scenarios for both perspectives is described.

Exploring Scholarly Data with Rexplore

A novel tool, Rexplore, which integrates statistical analysis, semantic technologies, and visual analytics to provide effective support for exploring and making sense of scholarly data is developed and the results from a task-centric empirical evaluation are presented.

Information Management: A Proposal

A hand conversion to HTML of the original MacWord (or Word for Mac?) document written in March 1989 and later redistributed unchanged apart from the date added in May 1990 is provided.

Semantic Web Technologies for Intelligent Engineering Applications

Engineers and managers from engineering domains will arrive at a firmer grasp of the benefits and limitations of using SWTs, helping them to select and adopt appropriate SWTs more effectively, and stakeholders from both communities should find this book useful in their work.

The Three 'W' of the World Wide Web Call for the Three 'M' of a Massively Multidisciplinary Methodology

This position paper defends the idea that the development of the Web to its full potential requires addressing the challenge of massive multidisciplinarity.

Paving the WAI: Defining Web-Augmented Interactions.

We define and provide real cases of "Web-Augmented Interactions" (WAI) with the world, a new family of interactions designed to exploit resources from the Web to improve the users' experience with

Smart Cities' Data: Challenges and Opportunities for Semantic Technologies

How can we innovate smart systems for smart cities, to make data available homogeneously, inexpensively, and flexibly while supporting an array of applications that have yet to exist or be specified?
