Chemical Engineering Applications of Semantic Web Technologies

American Institute of Chemical Engineers 2007 Annual Meeting

November 4 -9, 2007
Salt Palace Convention Center
Salt Lake City, Utah

Sponsored by Computing and Systems Technology Division (CAST) 

Area 10(e): Information Technology

The "Semantic Web" is a term coined by Tim Berners-Lee to describe web
content (documents, images, applications) which contains explicit
descriptions of its underlying semantics, or meaning. A variety of new
web tools, collectively dubbed "Web 2.0," are bringing the semantic web
closer to fruition. This session will explore innovative applications of
semantic web and Web 2.0 technologies to chemical engineering and
related fields. In particular, we are looking for papers describing the
use of Wikis, blogs, semantic mark-up, and formal ontologies to
applications of interest to chemical engineers.
