UMBC ebqiuity members help organize SWPW

May 1, 2005

Lalana Kagal (MIT and a recent UMBC PhD graduate), Tim Finin (UMBC) and Jim Hendler (UMCP) have organized a workshop focused on the use of semantic web technology in describing and enforcing policies for security and trust in open computing systems.

The Semantic Web And Policy Workshop (SWPW) will be held on 7 November 2005 in conjunction with the 4th International Semantic Web Conference in Galway, Ireland.

The workshop will cover policy-based frameworks for the semantic web as well as the use of semantic web technologies in policy frameworks for other application domains such as multiagent systems, grid computing, networking, and storage systems. Ora Lassila will give an invited talk entitled "Applying Semantic Web in Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing: Will Policy-Awareness Help?".

This workshop follows up on a successful workshop on Policy Management for the Web held in conjunction with the 14th International World Wide Web Conference on Tuesday May 10, 2005 in Chiba, Japan
