***APOLOGIES FOR MULTIPLE POSTINGS***
THE THIRD EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL ON ONTOLOGICAL
ENGINEERING AND THE SEMANTIC WEB (SSSW-2005)
Cercedilla, near Madrid, Spain.
10-16, July 2005
Registration will open on February 1st, 2005.
The KnowledgeWeb Network of Excellence is pleased
to announce the third 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
well-received schools held in 2003, as part of
the activities of the OntoWeb Network Consortium,
and in 2004, as part of the activities of the
KnowledgeWeb NoE. 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. To
ensure a high ratio between tutors and students
the school will be limited to 50 participants.
To avoid a passive learning experience we will
augment theoretical material with practical
workshops. Furthermore, we will ensure that the
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-2005 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.
ACCOMMODATION AND SOCIAL EVENTS
Cercedilla is a small village in the mountains
near Madrid. The school will be held in the

There will be an afternoon excursion to a local
tourist destination. Both this and a gala dinner
will be included in the cost.
We welcome applicants from anywhere in the world.
Normally applicants will be first or second year
postgraduate students in relevant disciplines
with some knowledge of ontological or knowledge
engineering and/or the development of
applications for the World Wide Web. Some basic
