About this Textbook

The Semantic Web aims at enriching the existing Web with meta-data and processing methods so as to provide web-based systems with advanced capabilities, in particular with context awareness and decision support. The objective of this book is to provide a coherent introduction to semantic web methods and research issues with a particular emphasis on reasoning.
The 2011 school programme focused around the central topic of applications of reasoning for the emerging "Web of Data'' with twelve exciting lectures. The chapters in the present book provide educational material and references for further reading. The excellent overview articles provided by the lecturers not only serve as
accompanying material for the students of the summer school itself: we are happy to present a volume that also provides the general reader an entry point to various topics related to reasoning over web data.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book contains lecture notes from the 7th Reasoning Web Summer School of 2011 held in Galway, Ireland, with the theme ‘Web of Data.’ Twelve sets of lecture notes are given in the volume, each a separate chapter. … Much to my surprise and delight, a complete video record of the lectures is also available. There are 117 videos captured in the lecture hall. The book and these videos together are an excellent resource for self-study.” (Anthony J. Duben, ACM Computing Reviews, December, 2012)
