Semantic Grid practical

Pinar Alper and Oscar Corcho


Introductory practical: development of semantically-enabled sticky notes, extending the work done in the GT4 tutorial.
Advanced practical: exploring the possibility of including lifetime information for the semantic metadata generated for sticky notes.

The practical will involve extending the implementation provided for the GT4 sticky note tutorial. Sticky notes will be created with associated semantics in the form of RDF triples based on a RDFS ontology. Each note will be associated with a type of event according to an event domain model, will have different information about the contents, etc. Users will be able to query community indices according to this model in order to retrieve notes in such a way that reasoning will be required.
