Research Area: Linked Open Data (LOD)
Linked Open Data are structured data that are published online in order to be accessed automatically by computers. By combining different sources huge amount of similar or related structured data are brought together in order to be queried and analyzed.
This research area is closely related to the Semantic Web and its standards stack like RDF* and OWL. We are interested in analyzing and benchmarking existing storage solutions and to apply the idea of LOD to selected applications.
