Keynote talk at IWWOST 2009 @ ICWE 2009

I was invited to give a keynote speach at IWWOST2009 workshop at ICWE 2009 conference. I've decided to talk about challenges of web engineering in building social web software. I will talk about service oriented architecture, I will discuss difficulties with current model driven approaches, and touch transactions a bit too.

Impressions from ESWC 2009

The attendance to the European Semantic Web Conference 2009 was a great opportunity to see other applications in field of Semantic Web. At the demo sections, I could evidence that a lot of effort is being put on semantic web services, knowledge management using semantic web and different usages of SPARQL for querying expansion. In particular, the panel of tagging and annotation presented related works to what we are doing at AAU. Such works will help me to improve my work as well as to explore other techniques that I had not considered so far.

ESWC 2009 2nd workshop day

The second day for us was mostly about the semantic wiki workshop. We have presented and demoed our personalized recommendations widgets, together with their performance evaluation.

The 1st KiWi Programming Camp

The KiWi programming camp was held in Salzburg and it was extremely important to understand in details how KiWi system was designed. In the first two days, we had introductory lectures about the system architecture and Seam framework. This introduction gave us the basis to develop our own functionalities more safely. In addition, we learned how to create unit tests and extend the system with external components, which are quickly plugged to the system.

Salzburg KiWi meeting

The Salzburg KiWi meeting was a great opportunity to get updated about the work progress of the project. We got a clear idea on how each party is conducting its tasks and performing its researches. Enabling technologies presented its advances in text extraction, reasoning and maintenance, and personalization. The use cases showed their ongoing work and reflected about particular changes occurred in the course of their project.

KIWI after one year from IWIS group perspective

A bit late, a week after annual meeting, but still I have decided to write a post as my view on KIWI project after one year. I think the KIWI project had a very successful first year. There is a release of the KIWI platform already now available and there is a large ongoing activity to further develop it. It is interesting how the thoughts in the project developed. We started from the semantic wiki platforms it was understood that time. Pages, typed links, and RDF annotations have been the main entities used in querying and reasoning.

Munich Meeting - Enabling Technologies

From my point of view the Munich Meeting was important to understand more in details what Munich and Brno partners are doing exactly. It was a great time to find out share points and plan later collaboration when implementing our personalization tasks. In particular, it was very helpful listen to François his point of view about usage model in KiWi. He emphasized that we need to have a concrete and clear vision about data we need for our usage model. This is primary requirement for our further development.

KIWI meeting in Prague

KIWI project consortium met in Prague between June 25 and June 27. Several advancements have been discussed in Prague such as requirements of use case partners for KIWI system, tag models, information extraction ideas, and reasoning about inconsistencies. Data model for the core system was discussed as well. The meeting was a success showing a convergence of ideas along the tagging, mesh up for integration with other enterprise information systems, as well as widget idea.

ESWC 2008: tutorial and workshop keynote

kiwiposter

I have participated in ESWC 2008 conference in Tenerife. The location was well chosen. Tenerife has very pleasent climate and the accomodation and session rooms in the conference hotel are also excellent. The only disadvantage was the long flight and not really good internet connection. But we have survived :)
