The Collaborative Semantic Grid

By David De Roure, Jeremey Frey, Danius Michaelides and Kevin Page


Grid and Semantic Web technologies both enable heterogeneous resources to be joined up to achieve new functionality and capability, and their combined effectiveness has been demonstrated through a number of ‘Semantic Grid’ projects. These typically apply Semantic Web technologies in Grid applications, in a datagrid or within the Grid middleware. In this paper we suggest how both approaches also support distributed collaborative endeavours, and explore their combined role. We illustrate this ‘Collaborative Semantic Grid’ through a number of case studies, and contemplate the changing nature of collaboration as these technologies evolve
