THE SECOND EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL ON ONTOLOGICAL
ENGINEERING AND THE SEMANTIC WEB (SSSW-2004)
Cercedilla, near Madrid, Spain.
19-24, July 2004
DEADLINE FOR PROVISIONAL REGISTRATION
May 3rd, 2004
The KnowledgeWeb European Network of Excellence
(http://knowledgeweb.semanticweb.org/) is pleased
to announce the second European Summer School on
Ontological Engineering and the Semantic Web.
This summer school, presented by leading
researchers in the field, is the successor to the
highly successful school held in 2003 as part of
the activities of the OntoWeb Network Consortium
(http://www.ontoweb.org). The school represents
an opportunity for postgraduate students to equip
themselves with the range of theoretical and
practical skills necessary for full engagement
with the challenges involved in developing
Ontologies and Semantic Web applications.
Students interested in taking part will have to
register online on the SSSW-04 web site by April
19th. Attendance at the school will be limited to
50 participants, therefore registration does not
guarantee a place at the school if the school is
over-subscribed. To register please fill the
online form at our web site,
To avoid a passive learning experience we will
augment theoretical material with practical
workshops. Furthermore, we will ensure that the
theoretical sessions are complementary to each
other by linking them to a mini-project. Work on
developing and presenting this project in
cooperation with other participants will serve as
a means of consolidating the knowledge and skills
gained from lectures and practical sessions.
Participants will be provided with a copy of all course lectures and
access to a PC with all necessary tools and environments pre-installed.
SSSW-2004 will provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment in
which participants will benefit not only from the formal and practical
sessions but also from informal and social interactions with
established researchers and the other participants in the school.
