Finin to serve as editor-in-chief of Journal of Web Semantics

September 1, 2005

UMBC faculty member Tim Finin has accepted a post as an editor-in-chief of the Journal of Web Semantics, joining co-editors-in-chief Carol Gobel and Rudi Struder.

The Journal of Web Semantics is an interdisciplinary journal based on research and applications of various subject areas that contribute to the development of a knowledge-intensive and intelligent service Web. These areas include: knowledge technologies, ontology, agents, databases and the semantic grid, obviously disciplines like information retrieval, language technology, human-computer interaction and knowledge discovery are of major relevance as well. All aspects of the Semantic Web development are covered. The publication of large-scale experiments and their analysis is also encouraged to clearly illustrate scenarios and methods that introduce semantics into existing Web interfaces, contents and services. The journal emphasizes the publication of papers that combine theories, methods and experiments from different subject areas in order to deliver innovative semantic methods and applications.

The journal is published by Elseveir and has quarterly electronic publication with a yearly archival print volume in December. Volume one was published in 2003.
