This book constitutes the first volume of a series of books focusing on the vital and ever-growing field of web semantics. The primary aim of the series is to investigate, present and promote core concepts, ideas and exemplary technologies for the next generation of semantic web research, stemming from both academia and industry. Topics covered will include process semantics, web services, ontologies, workflows, trust and reputation, and web applications.

The 14 papers in this volume, written by key scientists in the field, are preceded by an introduction written by the volume editors. The papers have been divided into three sections on Ontologies and Knowledge Sharing, Applied Semantic Web, and Web Services.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"The book—presented as a collection of wonderful articles related to Web semantics—describes the various ways in which information can be represented and stored, using semantic Web technology. Each part contains a wealth of information on the topics discussed. … Overall, the book presents a very good collection of articles related to the semantic Web … . It feels more like reading the proceedings of a conference on semantic Web technology." (Varadraj Gurupur, ACM Computing Reviews, November, 2009)
