The Semantic Web combines the descriptive languages RDF (Resource Description Framework) and OWL (Web Ontology Language), with the data-centric, customizable XML (eXtensible Mark-up Language) to provide descriptions of the content of Web documents. These machine-interpretable descriptions allow more intelligent software systems to be written, automating the analysis and exploitation of web-based information.
The 3rd European Semantic Web Conference took place from 11th -14th of June, in the Montenegrin town of Budva. Over 300 semantic technology researchers and practitioners took part.
