This is a taught course covering Semantic Web concepts, technologies and applications. The emphasis is on providing an understanding of the various problems involved in building semantic web applications and how they have been addressed by RDF, RDFS and OWL.

The course also covers issues involved with knowledge engineering issues associated with Ontology building, and also Description Logics (DLs), how they can be used to represent rules and how reasoning engines can apply these rules.

The course will make use of Protege, Jena and Altova's XML Spy for demonstrations.
