Scalable Semantic Web Knowledge Base Systems


Monday, October 24th - 09:00 - 19:00 - Room: Liszt

SSWS 2011 is the seventh edition of the successful Scalable Semantic Web Knowledge Base Systems workshop series. This workshop provides a forum for discussing scalability issues for the Semantic Web, with the focus on the development and deployment of knowledge base systems for processing Semantic Web data. We expect that scalability issues are going to challenge the Semantic Web for a long time and significant effort is needed in order to tackle them. This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners to share their recent ideas and advances towards building scalable knowledge base systems for the Semantic Web.
