Semantic Web Education and Training Workshop 2006 (SWET '06)
located at
1st Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2006), September 3-7, 2006
Beijing, China.



Semantic Web has been developed for several years. Now it roughly 
reaches the maturity level for teaching and
training. There are quite some of the efforts on such direction, such 
as Knowledge Web which has an education
cluster focusing on education and training in Europe, and EASTWEB 
which is funded by European Commission aiming
on education and training transfer between Europe and Asia. This 
workshop aims at gathering and confronting
experiences about teaching, disseminating and providing training on 
the Semantic Web, including both practical
activities on teaching (academy) and training (industry). Reports 
about initiatives in these directions are
solicited. Especially valuable will be examples of transnational 
cooperation it these areas (including reports
about experiences gathered in summer schools).


This workshop is part of the series of thematic workshops planned 
under the EASTWEB project. The objective is to
give first of all the opportunity to both Asian and European 
researchers coming from academia, industry, and
interested application communities to communicate problems, 
requirements and solutions within different areas;
to exchange working experiences. Secondly, to give the possibility to 
the different communities to learn about
the latest research developments in this field. It will provide the 
opportunity to disseminate the results to
the larger Semantic Web community in the form of edited books. 
Thirdly, to allow students and researchers from
the universities and research centers from all over the world to 
present their work to an academic and industrial
audience. From educational and scientific management perspective, the 
workshop would also help to ensure the
efficient and effective operation of the activities regarding 
Semantic Web Education and Training in consultation
with the education and scientific working group leaders. The major 
actions to advocate resources and programs to
build a competitive and cutting edge educational and scientific 
consortium and to develop and articulate a vision
for the future of the Semantic Web, acting to maintain as frontier of 
international research and proposing
initiatives to build upon Semantic Web results.
