After years of mostly theoretical research, Semantic Web Technologies are now reaching out into application areas like bioinformatics, eCommerce, eGovernment, or Social Webs. Applications like genomic ontologies, semantic web services, automated catalogue alignment, ontology matching, or blogs and social networks are constantly increasing, often driven or at least backed up by companies like Google, Amazon, YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn and others. The need to leverage the potential of combining information in a meaningful way in order to be able to benefit from the Web will create further demand for and interest in Semantic Web research.

This movement, based on the growing maturity of related research results, necessitates a reliable reference source from which beginners to the field can draw a first basic knowledge of the main underlying technologies as well as state-of-the-art application areas. This handbook, put together by three leading authorities in the field, and supported by an advisory board of highly reputed researchers, fulfils exactly this need. It is the first dedicated reference work in this field, collecting contributions about both the technical foundations of the Semantic Web as well as their main usage in other scientific fields like life sciences, engineering, business, or education.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This handbook is a massive two-volume, 1,000-page, 22-chapter work on the topic. ... Volume 1, comprising 14 chapters, covers semantic Web basics and various technologies. ... The second volume contains eight chapters, each detailing an applications area of semantic Web technology. ... The first volume of this set may be useful to those who want to learn more about the subject, while the second volume may be of more interest to practitioners in the discipline. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and above." (J. Beidler, Choice, Vol. 49 (7), March, 2012)

"This handbook is an achievement. The editors have included an incredible amount of material in only two volumes ... . Each chapter includes enough details that readers will be able to comprehend the significance of the information and use the generous list of references at the end of each chapter to track down complementary papers and books on the topics. This handbook is a job well done." (Anthony J. Duben, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2012)
