2nd International ExpertFinder Workshop: FEWS2007 (Finding Experts on the Web with Semantics)
Busan, Korea, November 2007
co-located with the 6th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2007) and 2nd Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2007)
ExpertFinder is an emerging collaborative initiative with the aim of devising vocabulary, rule extensions (for e.g. FOAF and SIOC) and best practices to annotate personal home pages, as well as web pages of institutions, conferences, publication indexes, etc. with adequate metadata to enable computer agents to find experts on particular topics.
