Semantics for RDF(S) and OWL

A short overview of the formal semantics of RDF and OWL. This is for those who know what RDF, OWL, etc, is (eg, they have gone through the full tutorial:-) and want to understand some of the model theory behind RDFS and OWL (which may also help in understanding why OWL-DL is as it is). It is not a detailed course on the SW Model theory, just a glimpse! (If there is time, it can also be integrated into the tutorial, for example.)

This is an evolving slide set, updated regularly. The slides are available in: Open Document Presentation, HTML, and PDF formats.
