Advance program guide :
The development of the new Web technology has been advancing in the USA and Europe. This technology has a possibility to drastically change the feature in the incoming high IT society. It is called the Semantic Web technology.
Current Web technology offers a human interface, on the other hand the Semantic Web technology presents a human interface and a machine readable interface. In this Semantic Web, Web information will be processed by agent program and mechanical jobs on Internet will be realized automatically. The result will be that the efficiency of economic activity and convenience of social and family life are improved extremely.
In this situation, the conference will be held by SFC Laboratory of Keio University and INTAP. The conference provides the latest technology trend of the Semantic Web and standardization activity and future scope of W3C(World Wide Web Consortium) by international researchers. It also provides the latest trend of the Semantic Web technology on the view of enterprise side by engineers. Through this conference, we hope that Japanese IT researchers and engineers acknowledge this technology still more and these studies are advanced.
