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


Workshop Theme
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.
