Semantically annotated hypermedia services

Pandis, Ippokratis, Karousos, Nikos and Tiropanis, Thanassis (2005) Semantically annotated hypermedia services In Proceedings of the Sixteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia. Association for Computing Machinery. 3 pp, pp. 245-247.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Hypermedia systems’ researchers investigate the various approaches in the way documents and resources are linked, navigated and stored in a distributed environment. Unfortunately, those systems fail to provide effortlessly usable discrete services, since it is difficult both to discover and to invoke any of them. This paper proposes the usage of emerging technologies that try to augment the Web resources with semantics in order to provide Hypermedia services that can be easily discovered, and integrated by potential third party developers. In this context, we analyze the benefits for the Hypermedia community upon the adoption of Semantic Web technologies for the description of Hypermedia services, and we implement an initial corresponding ontology.
