***APOLOGIES FOR MULTIPLE POSTINGS***
=======================================


http://kmi.open.ac.uk/events/sssw08/

VENUE
Cercedilla, near Madrid, Spain.

DATE
6-12 July, 2008

DEADLINE FOR PROVISIONAL REGISTRATION
20 April, 2008

INTRODUCTION
We are pleased to announce that **REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN** for the  
sixth European Summer School on Ontological Engineering and the  
Semantic Web. This summer school, presented by leading researchers in  
the field, is the successor to the well-received schools held in 2003,  
as part of the activities of the OntoWeb Network Consortium, and in  
2004-2007, as part of the activities of the KnowledgeWeb Network of  
Excellence.  The school represents an opportunity for postgraduate  
students to equip themselves with the range of theoretical, practical,  
and collaboration skills necessary for full engagement with the  
challenges involved in developing Ontologies and Semantic Web  
applications. To ensure a high ratio between tutors and students the  
school will be limited to 50 participants. This year the school will  
be sponsored by a number of European projects including LUISA, NEON,  
SUPER and X-MEDIA and also by STI International.


APPROACH
Our approach combines the practical with the theoretical. Tutorial/ 
lecture material is augmented with hands-on practical workshops and we  
ensure that the sessions complement each other by linking them to a  
mini-project. Work on developing and presenting this project in  
cooperation with other participants will serve as a means of  
consolidating the knowledge and skills gained from lectures and  
practical sessions.

Participants will be provided with a copy of all course lectures and  
access to a PC with all necessary tools and environments pre-installed.

SSSW-2008 will provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment in  
which participants will benefit not only from the formal and practical  
sessions but also from informal and social interactions with  
established researchers and the other participants in the school. To  
further facilitate communication and feedback all attendees will be  
obliged to prepare and present a poster on their own research.

TUTORS
Sean Bechhofer (University of Manchester, UK)
Fabio Ciravegna (University of Sheffield, UK)
