3738 The 7th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2008) | Personal Identification and Collaborations

ISWC 2008

The Personal Identification and Collaborations: Knowledge Mediation and Extraction (PICKME 2008) workshop solicits new research from the Semantic Web community applying annotation, knowledge extraction, ontology engineering, reasoning and ontology mediation techniques to the task of finding people and their interactions with other people on the Web, formally representing and reusing that knowledge to support new services such as expert finding. The goal is to enable a Web-scale infrastructure for the creation, publication and use of experts’ semantic descriptions to support expert finding scenarios such as group management, disaster response, recruitment, team building, problem solving and on-the-fly consultation.
