An Infrastructure for Managing URI Synonymity on the Semantic Web (Poster)

Jaffri, Afraz, Glaser, Hugh and Millard, Ian (2008) An Infrastructure for Managing URI Synonymity on the Semantic Web (Poster) At 5th European Semantic Web Conference, Spain. 01 - 05 Jun 2008.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


The Semantic Web vision involves the production and use of large amounts of RDF data. There have been recent initiatives amongst the Semantic Web community, in particular the Linking Open Data activity and our own ReSIST project, to publish large amounts of RDF that are both interlinked and dereferenceable. The proliferation of such data gives rise to millions of URIs for non-information resources such as people, places and abstract things. Our Consistent Reference Services provide a standard way of managing multiple URIs and finding URI equivalences. The CRS has been designed for use with all linked data Providers and is currently running on a live linked data site.
