Description & Coverage
Description:

Semantic interoperability provides the means to automatically process and integrate large amounts of information without human intervention.

Cases on Semantic Interoperability for Information Systems Integration: Practices and Applications provides an in-depth analysis of issues involved with the application of semantic interoperability to information assimilation tasks followed by field professionals. This significant collection of research explains in-depth issues involved the integration of large amounts of heterogeneous information and points to deficiencies of current systems.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Geospatial Semantic Web
  • Ontological stance
  • Semantic extraction and annotation
  • Semantic Interoperability
  • Semantic mediation
  • Semantic peer-to-peer system
  • Semantic synchronization
  • Service integration
  • Streamlining semantic integration systems
  • Structure-preserving semantic matching
Reviews & Statements

This book brings together some of the best current thinking on the conceptual foundations and domain-specific practices of semantic interoperability. It is an essential resource for all those concerned with resolving the problem of semantic heterogeneity.

– Peter E. Hart, Ricoh Innovations, Inc., California

This book looks at ways in which theoreticians and engineers have managed, so far, to come to terms with heterogeneity.

– Dave Robertson, University of Edinburgh, UK
