The Semantic Web would be an evolving extension of current Web model (referred as Syntactic Web) that introduces a semantic layer in which semantics, or meaning of information, are formally defined. Semantics should integrate web-centric standard information infrastructures improving several aspects of interaction among heterogeneous systems: semantic interoperability would improve common interoperability models (basic and functional interoperability) introducing the interpretation of means of data. Semantic interoperability is a concretely applicable interaction model under the assumption of adopting rich data models (commonly called Ontology) composed of concepts within a domain and the relationships among those concepts.
Semantic technologies are partially inverting the common view at actor intelligence: intelligence is not implemented (only) by actors but it is implicitly resident in the knowledge model. In other words, schemas contain information and the “code” to interpret it. They are providing a new understanding of knowledge representation.
This special issue also publishes an extended version of selected contributions from the IWSI (International Workshop on Semantic Interoperability, http://www.icaart.org/workshops.asp#IWSI) and SSW (Semantic Sensor Web, http://www.ic3k.org/SSW.asp) workshops.
