Sesame tutorial during ESWC2006

Sesame will be organizing a developers tutorial this summer, hosted by the 3rd European Semantic Web Conference ESWC2006, in Budva, Montenegro, June 11-14.

`Application Development with the Sesame Framework'

Half-Day Tutorial, June 11th.
Presenters: Jeen Broekstra, Arjohn Kampman, Atanas Kiryakov, and Peter Mika.


This tutorial aims at giving Semantic Web application developers and researchers an introduction into the many features and possiblities of the Sesame RDF framework, including advanced querying using SeRQL and SPARQL, using the Sesame Java APIs for programmatic manipulation of large RDF graphs, and doing scalable OWL reasoning using the OWLIM reasoner plugin.

The tutorial starts with a basic introduction into RDF and the Sesame framework. Next, an introduction into the use RDF query languages like SeRQL and SPARQL will be given, after which attendees can get hands-on experience by means of some simple excercises. We then shift focus on the use of the Sesame framework as part of application development, highlighting features of the API, and the way in which to communicate with the system either locally or remotely. We move on to introduce Elmo, a set of tools and Java Beans for cross-use ontologies such as FOAF, and in the final session we will discuss scalable OWL reasoning in Sesame using OWLIM.

The goal of the tutorial is to make researchers and developers aware of the advantages of using the Sesame framework for their own development work, and giving them the knowledge to get started quickly with using Sesame effectively.

We hope to see you all there!
