The 1st Asian Autumn School on the Semantic Web aims to teach its 
attendees how to apply semantic technologies in their own projects 
and environments. The school is targeted at young researchers and 
other interested parties affiliated to academia or industry. It is 
particularly our goal to bring together international experts in the 
field and to invite the leading research groups in Korea to be part 
of the program.

Course Topics
Presentations by leading international experts in the field will 
introduce the core technologies of the Semantic Web:

- Standard knowledge representation languages such as Resource 
Description Framework (RDF) or Web Ontology Language (OWL), including 
tools for exploiting their reasoning capabilities.
- Methodologies, methods and tools to build and manage ontologies.
- The current directions in Semantic Web Services, in particular the 
Web Service Modeling Ontology (WSMO) and the related Web Service 
Modeling Language (WSML) and Web Service Execution Environment (WSMX).

Tutorials, hands-on sessions and exercices
Tutorials, hands-on sessions and exercises will provide additional 
insights into the aforementioned topics and guide the students in 
applying the  technologies in specific situations. These learning 
modules will be complemented by invited talks which report on the 
deployment of semantic technologies in real-world business scenarios, 
handed over by representatives of well-known international companies. 
The participants will be involved in projects, in which they will 
develop prototypical Semantic Web applications in small teams on the 
basis of a pre-defined scenario specification.

Co-located events
The Asian Autumn School on the Semantic Web will be co-located with 
the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2007) and Asian 
Semantic Web Conference (ASWC2007) in Busan, Korea. It will take 
place one week prior to these conferences.
