Questions (and Answers) on the Semantic Web
Ivan Herman, W3C
“Ontologier i arbete”, Kista, Sweden, 31 August 2004

Slides of the presentation given at the event Ontologier i arbete (Ontology in practice) organized by the W3C Swedish Office and Metamatrix ABin Kista, Sweden, on the 31st of August 2004.

If your browser is enabled for SVG, I advise you to view the slideset in SVG. You may want to check the SVG Implementations page for more details on players and on the latest versions. Otherwise, you can use the links to the HTML slides below, but you will loose, for example, some rescaling and animation effects. Besides, the slides look much nicer in SVG…

Note: if you want to use Adobe’s SVG plugin, you must use the latest, ASV6 version for these slides. The slides also work with Batik 1.5.

Finally, a PDF file is also available, containing all the slides. You can use it for printing, for example.
