Semantic Web: Resource Integration Semantic annotation Shared ontology Web resources / services / DBs / etc.
What else Can be Annotated for Semantic Web ? External world resources Web resources / services / DBs / etc. Web users (profiles, preferences) Shared ontology Web agents / applications Web access devices
Word-Wide Correlated Activities Semantic Web Agentcities is a global, collaborative effort to construct an open network of on-line systems hosting diverse agent based services. Semantic Web is an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation Agentcities Grid Computing Wide-area distributed computing, or "grid” technologies, provide the foundation to a number of large-scale efforts utilizing the global Internet to build distributed computing and communications infrastructures. FIPA FIPA is a non-profit organisation aimed at producing standards for the interoperation of heterogeneous software agents. Web Services WWW is more and more used for application to application communication. The programmatic interfaces made available are referred to as Web services. The goal of the Web Services Activity is to develop a set of technologies in order to bring Web services to their full potential

Practical assignment in brief • Students are expected to select one of below recommended papers, which is not already selected by some other student, register his/her choice from the Course Assistant and make PowerPoint presentation based on that paper. The presentation should provide evidence that a student has got the main ideas of the paper, is able to provide his personal additional conclusions and critics to the approaches used.
Evaluation criteria for practical assignment • Content and Completeness; • Clearness and Simplicity; • Discovered Connections to IWA Course Material; • Originality, Personal Conclusions and Critics; • Design Quality.
Format, Submission and Deadlines • Format: PowerPoint ppt. (winzip encoding allowed), name of file is student’s family name; • Presentation should contain all references to the materials used, including the original paper; • Deadline - 10 December 2002; • Files with presentations should be sent by e-mail to Vagan Terziyan (firstname.lastname@example.org AND email@example.com); • Notification of evaluation - until 15 December.

Semantic Metanetwork for Metadata Management Semantic Metanetwork is considered formally as the set of semantic networks, which are put on each other in such a way that links of every previous semantic network are in the same time nodes of the next network. In a Semantic Metanetwork every higher level controls semantic structure of the lower level. Terziyan V., Puuronen S., Reasoning with Multilevel Contexts in Semantic Metanetworks, In: P. Bonzon, M. Cavalcanti, R. Nossun (Eds.), Formal Aspects in Context, Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2000, pp. 107-126.
Petri Metanetwork for Management Dynamics • A metapetrinet is able not only to change the marking of a petrinet but also to reconfigure dynamically its structure • Each level of the new structure is an ordinary petrinet of some traditional type. • A basic level petrinet simulates the process of some application. • The second level, i.e. the metapetrinet, is used to simulate and help controlling the configuration change at the basic level.
