Swoogle is a crawler-based indexing and retrieval system the semantic web -- i.e., RDF or OWL documents. The documents are indexed using SIRE, an ngram based information retrieval system which can return documents matching a user's query or compute the similarity among a set of documents. Swoogle is able to reason about the documents it discovers and compute useful metadata properties about them. We also describe an approach to computing the rank of a semantic web document based loosely on the pageRank algorithm. Additional speakers: Pavan Reddivari, Vidhal Dosh, Rong Pan and Drew Ogle
