Semantic Web Conference

June 9-12th, 2002

Sardinia, Italia

OntoWeb supported in part by the OntoWeb network

in cooperation with the
DARPA Program

ISWC will be a major international forum at which research on all aspects of the Semantic Web is presented. ISWC 2002 follows on from the success of the first Semantic Web Working Symposium (SWWS), which was held in Stanford in July, 2001. ISWC 2002 will take place on the beautiful Mediteranian island of Sardinia, Italy, 9th-12th June, 2002, immediately preceding the OntoWeb workshop. It will begin by a tutorial day on Sunday 9th.

Registration is now open for ISWC and related events.


Five general interest and technical tutorials are available to attend just before ISWC.


ISWC 2002 has gathered submissions related to all aspects of the Semantic Web. Both technical and survey/overview papers were solicited, as well as descriptions of working Semantic Web systems, position statements and reports on work in progress. The selected papers and additionnal late-breaking contributions to be presented as posters will make an exiting technical program.

Ontoweb workshop

The Ontoweb workshop will take place immediately after ISWC. Program and registration pages are ready. Ontoweb features the RuleML workshop.
