Uncertainty Reasoning for the Semantic Web

Sunday, October 23rd - 09:00 - 18:00 - Room: Rheinaue

This workshop will discuss the different ways in which the different types of uncertainty reasoning can contribute to enhance Semantic Web languages, protocols, and specifications, and to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to representing and reasoning under uncertainty. This is a very important issue for bringing the Semantic Web vision to its full fruition, since uncertainty is an unavoidable factor in many real-world applications.
