      2nd European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2005)
      May 29 to June 1, 2005
      Heraklion, Crete (Greece)
    The vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance today's web via the
    exploitation of machine-processable meta data. The explicit representation
    of the semantics of data, accompanied with domain theories (Ontologies),
    will enable a web that provides a qualitatively new level of service. It
    will weave together an incredibly large network of human knowledge and will
    complement it with machine processability. Various automated services will
    help the user to achieve goals by accessing and providing information in
    machine-understandable form. This process may ultimately create extremely
    knowledgeable systems with various specialized reasoning services systems.
    Many technologies and methodologies are being developed within Artificial
    Intelligence, Human Language Technology, Machine Learning, Databases,
    Software Engineering and Information Systems that can contribute towards the
    realization of this vision.
    The 2nd Annual European Semantic Web Conference will present the latest
    results in research and application in semantic web technologies (including
    knowledge mark-up languages, semantic web services, ontology management and
    more). ESWC 2005 will also feature a special industry-oriented event
    providing European industry with an opportunity to become even more familiar
    with these technologies. It will offer a tutorial program to get up to speed
    with European and global developments in this exciting new area.
    ESWC 2005 is co-located with a meeting of the Knowledge Web Network of
    Excellence. Workshops and meetings of other European Commission 6th
    Framework Programme projects involved in the semantic web and semantic web
    technologies will be able to showcase their developments.
    ESWC 2005 is sponsored by SDK - a group of three European Commission 6th
    Framework Programme projects known as SEKT, DIP and Knowledge Web. Together
    these projects aim to improve world-wide research and standardisation in the
    area of the Semantic Web. For more information on SDK, please visit
