Semantic Web Service Course in Vancouver

My old friend and PhD advisor Mark Wilkinson is organizing an upcoming short course on semantic web services. Aside from a basic intro to the relevant pieces of the semantic web, you will become deeply ingrained in SADI.  See below for details.

Training Courses in Web Publishing - Scientific Data and Services in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Updated information!!
 Registration                              Workshop
Until October 21st, 2011              October 22nd-23rd, 2011
"The Semantic Web is emerging as a new and more powerful standard for data and knowledge representation compared to the traditional Web. In this very unique, hands-on workshop you will learn how to use the Semantic Automated Discovery and Integration (SADI) framework to publish your data and analytical tools on the Semantic Web to make them easily accessible, and easier to integrate with other data and tools. Space is limited: don't get left behind in the Semantic paradigm shift! Register today at http://sadiframework.org/training/WS2/index.html."
The course provides theory and practical skills in the semantic technologies that underpin the development of semantic web services.The training course is divided into the following modules:

  • Semantic Web and DL Reasoning
  • SADI Semantic Web Services

The course provides an excellent learning opportunity and serves as a venue for the exchange of ideas among a highly interdisciplinary group of scientists. The intended audience for the course are:

  • Industry pioneers in workflow, grid and semantic technologies;
  • Web developers and researchers seeking to ensure the adoption of their technologies as part of a growing ecosystem of easily discoverable and accessible data and services;
  • Grid computing architects and developers interested in building globally interoperable systems;
  • Workflow system developers coordinating computational and data resources across the web using semantics;
  • Researchers involved in web-based knowledge discovery
    The cost per participant is:
    Regular  Registration (375 CAN$)
    Student  Registration (325 CAN$)
    On site Registration (500 CAN$)
