Overview

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th International Semantic Web Conference, ISWC 2005, held in Galway, Ireland, in November 2005.

The 54 revised full academic papers and 17 revised industrial papers presented together with abstracts of 3 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 217 submitted papers to the academic track and 30 to the industrial track. The research papers address all current issues in the field of the semantic Web, ranging from theoretical aspects to various applications. The industrial track contains papers on applications in particular industrical sectors, new technology for building applications, and methodological and feasibility aspects of building industrical applications that incorporate semantic Web technology. Short descriptions of the top five winning applications submitted to the Semantic Web Challenge competition conclude the volume.
