ISWC2004 is the major international forum at which research on the Semantic Web is presented. The vision of the Semantic Web is to make the contents of the Web unambiguously computer interpretable, enabling automation of a diversity of tasks currently performed by human beings. The goal of providing semantics and automated reasoning capabilities to the Web draws upon research in a broad range of areas including Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Software Engineering, Distributed Computing and Information Systems. Contributions to date have included languages for semantic annotation of Web documents, automated reasoning capabilities for Web languages, ontologies, query and view languages, semantic translation of Web contents, semantic integration middleware, technologies and principles for building multi-agent and Grid systems, semantic interoperation of programs and devices, technologies and principles for describing, searching and composing Web Services, and more.
