Ulrich Küster, Raul Garcia-Castro, Jerome Euzenat and Christian Bizer
Roughly 10 years after the vision of the Semantic Web was first presented, Semantic Web Technologies have become a well-established pillar of computer science research. With the increasing number of technologies being developed, the problem of how to compare and evaluate the various approaches gains more and more importance. Such evaluation is critical not only for future scientific progress, but also for the industrial adoption of the developed technologies. This tutorial presents the state of the art of Semantic Web technology evaluation. It is targeted at researchers and practitioners interested in learning how to investigate the strengths and shortcomings of Semantic Web technologies.
