Welcome to the first site on the semantic web
Why do we call http://www.mindswap.org the first site on the Semantic Web?
The MINDSWAP Group
The Semantic Web Research Group is a group of people working with Semantic Web technology inside the MIND LAB at University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies
The Web site for the Tetherless World Project at RPI is now on line.
Yarden Katz has been awarded the Schlaretzki Prize, which is given by the philosophy department each spring to the most outstanding student in the department. Way to go Yarden!
The paper "Repairing Unsatisfiable Concepts in OWL Ontologies" by Aditya Kalyanpur, Bijan Parsia, Evren Sirin and Bernardo Cuenca Grau won the "Best Paper" award at the recently conducted European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) 2006 The paper is available at: http://www.mindswap.org/papers/repairESWC.pdf
Bijan Parsia, long time inmate of the MINDSWAP asylum, has busted loose, finding his way to a faculty position at the University of Manchester. We congratulate Bijan on his position, miss him a lot, and wish the best for him as he joins the second best Semantic Web group around :-)
