Dear Sir/Madam,

Ontotext are pleased to announce a new training course designed for
technical people who want to learn about semantic technology standards
with a view to building applications based on OWLIM, a family of
semantic repository products developed by Ontotext. The trainers have
many years of experience in teaching semantic technology and
involvement in landmark deployments of RDF database engines, like the
one for BBC's World Cup website, and in outstanding linked data
projects like LinkedBrainz.

The course will be held regularly in central London approximately once
per month with the first event taking place on the 28th to 30th
September. It will span three days, starting with an introduction to
the basic principles of semantic technology, W3C standards (RDF, OWL,
SPARQL), knowledge representation, reasoning and linked data. The
second day will cover topics important for building applications based
on OWLIM, including advanced features such as owl:sameAs optimisation,
geo-spatial and full-text search indexing. The third day will cover
operational issues relating to supporting applications based on OWLIM,
including cluster configuration and maintenance. Participants will be
able to select only those days suitable for their level of experience.

Semantic Technologies with OWLIM is recommended for those new to
semantic technology, as well as presenting an opportunity for those
familiar with OWLIM to expand their knowledge. Corporate users of
OWLIM will be able to use the event to train their employees,
including IT managers, developers and operational staff.

Early bird registration is offered up to the 26th of August at a 15%
discount off the regular price. Normal registration finishes on the
16th of September - late registrations after this date incur a 30%
surcharge. There are a limited number of places and registrations will
be given out on first-come-first-served basis.

Full details are available from the Ontotext website.

The Ontotext team
