Description

As a new generation of technologies, frameworks, concepts and practices for information systems emerge, practitioners, academicians, and researchers are in need of a source where they can go to educate themselves on the latest innovations in this area. Semantic Web Information Systems: State-of-the-Art Applications establishes value-added knowledge transfer and personal development channels in three distinctive areas: academia, industry, and government.

Semantic Web Information Systems: State-of-the-Art Applications covers new semantic Web-enabled tools for the citizen, learner, organization, and business. Real-world applications toward the development of the knowledge society and semantic Web issues, challenges and implications in each of the IS research streams are included as viable sources for this challenging subject.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Amit Sheth is an educator, researcher, and entrepreneur. He is a LexisNexis Eminent Scholar (an endowed faculty position, funded by LexisNexis and the Ohio Board of Regents), an IEEE Fellow, and the director of the Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis) at Wright State University. which conducts research in Semantic Web, services computing, and scientific worklfows. His current work encompasses WWW subareas of Semantic Web, Social Web, Semantic Sensor Web/WoT and semantics enabled services and cloud computing, and their innovative applications to health, fitness and well being, and several other industries.

Earlier, Dr. Sheth was a professor at the University of Georgia, where he started the LSDIS lab in 1994, and he served in R&D groups at Bellcore, Unisys, and Honeywell. His h-index of 75 and the 23K+ citations to his publications places him among the top 100 in Computer Science and top few in WWW. His research has led to several commercial products, many deployed applications and two successful companies. He serves as technology and business advisor to startups and additional commercialization of his research continues. He is on several journal editorial boards, is the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS), joint Editor-in-Chief of Distributed and Parallel Databases (DAPD), and a co-editor of two Springer book series (Semantic Web and Beyond: Computing for Human Experience, and Advanced Database Systems) (http://knoesis.org/amit).

Miltiadis D. Lytras has co-edited/co-edits, 25 special issues in International Journals (e.g., IEEE Transaction on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Internet Computing, IEEE Transactions on Education, Computers in Human Behaviour, etc.) and has authored/[co-]edited 12 books (e.g., Open Source for Knowledge and Learning Management, Ubiquitous and Pervasive Knowledge Management, Intelligent Learning Infrastructures for Knowledge Intensive Organizations, and Semantic Based Information Systems). He is the founder and officer of the Semantic Web and Information Systems Special Interest Group in the association for information systems (http://www.sigsemis.org). He serves as the (Co) Editor-in-Chief of 12 international journals (e.g., International Journal of Knowledge and Learning, International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning, International Journal on Social and Humanistic Computing, International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems, International Journal on Digital Culture and Electronic Tourism, International Journal of Electronic Democracy, International Journal of Electronic Banking, and International Journal of Electronic Trade) while he is an associate editor or editorial board member of seven more.
