- Aayaam concluded sucessfully.
We acknowledge the efforts of all those who have made this event a big success.
The NextGen Web is here, are you prepared?
The Semantic Web is an idea of World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee that the Web as a whole can be made more intelligent and perhaps even intuitive about how to serve a user's needs. It creates a mesh of information linked up in such a way as to be easily processable by machines, on a global scale.
For this, data integration is achieved through a common data model, the Resource Description Framework (RDF) . This also makes the information machine-processable. Finally, the Semantic Web aims to build a machine reasoning architecture, using which software agents can use RDF data to make inferences, thus enabling intelligent software applications to be developed. Ofcourse, such a reasoning mechanism needs a formal description of concepts, terms, and relationships within a given domain. This is achieved through notations such as RDF Schema (RDFS) and the Web Ontology Language (OWL) . A variety of data interchange formats like RDF/XML, N3, Turtle, N-Triples) are used.
Towards the Next Generation Web, CSE, IITB brings forth Aayaam, a technical symposium on SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) and Semantic Web. The Web as we have known it has been undergoing tremendous ferment over the last few years. The lack of a functional view of the web has spawned web services and the lack of meaning lead to the emergence of the Semantic Web.
The evolution of these technologies allow sharing of computational power and has enabled development of modular, integrated, complex but user friendly web. We bring together experts across the country from industry and academia working in the field of SOA and semantic web to provide an integrated view of their experiences and research.
Aayaam is the 8th in the series of workshops held at Computer Science & Engineering Department, IITB. Aayaam this year examines the evolution of Next Generation Web. Since 1999, CSE has been orgainizing this workshop as SecNet, a leading event for professionals in the software industry and academia focussing on Network Security. Previous workshops have had participants from IBM, Microsoft, Indian Navy, National Stock Exchange(NSE), TCS, Patni Computers, VSSC(Vikram Sarabhai Space Center), RedHat India, and various academic institutions across the country.
