Semantic Web Laboratory

Throught the SWIG group resources page, I found this canadian NRC-funded Semantic Web Research Laboratory.

At the basic layer, SemWebLab develops ontologies consisting of taxonomies that classify Web objects along with rules, typed by taxonomies, for integrity checking and knowledge inference. SemWebLab also studies agents that use ontologies to support, e.g., the similarity retrieval and composition of learning objects. We consider Semantic Web Services as the special case of active Web objects. SemWebLab has a focus on metadata extraction to cope with the vast number of Web objects that are natural language documents.
