March 31, 2011 – Atwood Technology is hosting the third Atlantic Workshop on Semantics and Services (AWoSS3) at its headquarters in Miramichi, New Brunswick, on May 18, 2011.

Wire Service Canada brought this news to our attention in the press release, “Atwood Technology Hosting Third Atlantic Workshop on Semantics and Services.” Atwood Technology is known for their progress in ontology-based human semantics. Since semantics (Web 3.0) is the next generation in Internet technology, this could be an interesting event.

AWoSS originated with the University of New Brunswick and Canada’s National Research Council (NRC) in 2010. Its goal is to bring researchers and practitioners in the Atlantic Provinces together to share advances and best practices in semantics and services.

The Atlantic Workshop on Semantics and Services provides two tracks during the daylong session. The morning track is an informal technical forum with emphasis on conceptual and technical challenges for semantics, services, and applying semantics to services. The afternoon track focuses on the business applications of semantics and services and provides executives and managers with ideas about how they can use semantics and services in their business to create a competitive advantage, better serve customers, and improve efficiency.
