  1. Keio Research Institute at SFC
    International Medical Information Center(IMIC)
    "MedDRA Ontology"
    We have successfully ported MedDRA thesaurus into OWL ontology, and generated a new MedDRA ontology. By the MedDRA ontology, it is easy to provide several new services such as intelligent search, information integration with user local information, semantic inference or autonomic processing. The MedDRA ontology has almost same size of Galen ontology developed in UK.
  2. Toshiba Corp.
    "Ubiquitous Metadata Scoutor"
    The scoutor is a semantic application in Ubiquitous Computing environment. Just by holding your cellular phone close to any of products around you, it finds the related blogs from its bar-code metadata. Further, you can get the extracted word-of-mouth and hot topic on that product. Please stop by our booth and try it!
  3. NTT Corporation
    NTT Software Corporation
    "Find relationships by traversing graph with CSM (Context Structure Matching)"
    A large scale heterogeneous data structure can be transformed into a knowledge representation using a RDF graph.
    We propose CSM to extract similarity and comparison points from the RDF graph by a combination of analysis and graph pattern matching. We also present a demo of cross domain search using CSM on office data to search similar persons and compare technological keywords from several types of databases.
  4. Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd.
    National Institute of Information and Communications Technology
    "A project of a sightseeing guide system based on personalization and group adaptation"
    We introduce a novel decision-making system for a group which has developed based on meta data, context, user profile, and group profile by using the personalization and group adaptation technologies.
  5. National Institute of Informatics
    Light-weight metadata management
    We demonstrate two types of systems to manage light-weight metadata. One is RNA/Glucose that manage RSS for personal knowledge management, and the other is Semantic MediaWiki that enables management of collaborative contents with semantic annotation.
  6. Justsystem Corporation
    "The XFY Technology -- Creating the New Paradigm for "Human-Tractable XML" out of Machine-Readable XML"
    We have been seeing an emergence of XML standardization and application involving industrial standards such as XHTML (text), SVG (graphic), XBRL (business), SOAP and WSDL (Web services) as well as the Semantic Web standards such as RDF, OWL and OWL-S.
    With this regard, interoperativity among the standards has come to be a formidable technological issue.
    We shall introduce our Xfy technology that enables the seamless handling of XML standards by demonstrating use case scenarios for consumer developers.
  7. Knowledge Synergy Inc.
    "New function and case example of the OKS (Ontopia Knowledge Suite)"
    Not only improvements in a performance, but also some new functions were added to the OKS (Ontopia Knowledge Suite) in the last year. Case examples of these are introduced and demonstrated.
  8. Ubiquitous Platform Development Div., NEC Corporation.
    "JACLE" (Javascript Annotea-client for Collaboration Environment)
    "JACLE" (Javascript Annotea-client for Collaboration Environment) is the Annotea client implemented with Ajax and Javascript technology.
    Users can use JACLE without installing any plugins in their PC. In this booth, we exhibit the software archtecture and the system architecture of JACLE that you can try on your laptop in the conference hall.
  9. W3C
    Introduction of W3C (World Wide Web Consortium)
    its objectives, organization, current activities, and ways for participation.
