  1. 1. C. Bratsas, A. Dimou, G. Alexiadis, D.E. Chrysou, K. Kavargyris, Parapontis J., P. Bamidis, I. AntoniouWeb Science Program, Mathematics Department, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
  2. 2. Web ScienceWeb Science Trans-disciplinary field of Science taking the Web as its primary object of studyWeb Science invests Statistics of the Web Mathematical Modeling of the Web Bio-medical Networks Semantic Processing Economic Analysis of the Web business Behavioral Analysis of Web users
  3. 3. MSc Program in Web ScienceGoal  multi-disciplinary approach although oriented towards the Statistics and Mathematics of the Web.  Understand and model how the Web works and evolves in the knowledge society.Study base  Web assessment,  Mathematical Modeling and Operation combined with  Business Applications  Societal Transformations
  4. 4. Semantic Wikias Learning Management System• Wikis as Learning Management Systems has been explored.• Learning Management Systems integration with Semantic Web is on the way.

  8. 8. WSSW ontologyReuse of existing ontology standards: FOAF describes the academic staff and the studentsReuse of already defined ontologies: Master Ontology the best ontology model for master program implemented by MSc’s students

  25. 25. Critic - Conclusions• Halo extension constrains the WSSW, and in general the implemented wiki, to use only its data.• No external endpoint can be called to import the query’s results in WSSW pages.
  26. 26. Future Work ImplementationUse SPARQLExtension as soon as it is stable to call external endpoints.Move to LinkedWiki or other extension which implements queries to external endpoints and embeds them in wiki’s pages!Embed content derived as SPARQL queries to WSSW’s pages from related external endpoints.
  27. 27. Future WorkUse Semantic Signup extension to semantically annotate every new user!Annotate courses and the educational objects they provide using the proper codes from the corresponding Scientific Classifications in SKOS format. ACM Classification Mathematics Subject Classification
