Introduction

The Semantic Web Education and Outreach (SWEO) Interest Group has been established to develop strategies and materials to increase awareness among the Web community of the need and benefit for the Semantic Web, and educate the Web community regarding related solutions and technologies.

The scope of SWEO group includes:

  • the development and collection of use and business cases, stemming from both user and vendor companies, and documenting the value of Semantic Web technologies
  • identifying possible vertical markets and application areas for the Semantic Web
  • production of clear guidelines for tutorials, presentations, teaching materials, FAQ-s, etc, targeted at different audiences

Participation

Communications of the SWEO IG are public. This includes public meeting records and access to the archives of the public-sweo-ig@w3.org mailing list.

The SWEO IG welcomes active participation from representatives of W3C Member organizations. If you are part of a W3C Member organization and you already have a W3C user account, you can join the SWEO IG by filling in the participation form. Otherwise, please follow the instructions on how to become a W3C Member. Active participation means participating at the weekly phone meetings, joining the discussions on the mailing list and, possibly, and participating at the face to face meetings.

Community Project Support

SWEO was very impressed by the number of high quality ideas for community projects that were proposed. SWEO has decided to support the following four projects: FOAF based White Listing for Fighting Spam, Interlinking Open Data on the Semantic Web, Knowee/Contact Organizer, and Powder Browser Extensions. We encourage developers to sign up to participate in these projects, thereby helping to ensure their success.
