*Semantic Web Q & A*
by Jim Hendler    (05)

*Abstract*:    (06)

The Ontolog community has heard many presentations touching on 
what the Semantic Web is, how it interacts with ontology 
development and/or web services, and what semantics might offer. 
By now, you must have questions you want answered about the hows 
and whys of RDF, OWL, and the emerging Semantic Web Rules and 
Services areas. Rather than an organized talk, I will put myself 
at your disposal to answer questions about what these 
technologies are, how they can be used, and where they'll go 
next. So come and ask, and I'll do my best to answer.    (07)
