The two main challenges for the coming to pass of the Semantic Web are (1) scalability and (2) distribution. The problem of scalability is that a well-designed web-oriented Knowledge Base (KB) system must be able to handle larger and larger volumes of knowledge without unbearable degradation of performance. Dealing with the second challenge (distribution) is as complex an issue since it must deal efficiently and seamlessly with knowledge spread all over the net under “real-life” conditions.

The project will provide resources and tools for automatic retrieval of prototypical situations (such as communications, moves, commercial transactions...) and will thus help to improve automatic acces to the meaning of electronic content, which can give a crucial technical boost to automatic summarization, document classification or information extraction.
The overall objective of the project is to propose new solutions for querying large scale multisource heterogeneous information, with two applications to web linked data and underwater archaeological surveys, where in both applications we face large data sets expressed in RDFs and OWL.
