information management in a distributed/Grid setting.

There is no registration fee for this IST
workshop, but the SeLeNe project is not able to fund travel or accommodation
The workshop is being organised as part
of the SeLeNe project (IST-2001-39045). SeLeNe (Self e-Learning
Networks) is a one-year Accompanying Measure funded by EU FP5, running
from 1st November 2002 to 31st January 2004. The project falls into
action line V.1.9 CPA9 of the IST 2002 Work Programme, and is contributing
to the IST Action Line "Information and Knowledge Grids".
The SeLeNe project is conducting a feasibility study into using
semantic web technology for syndicating knowledge-intensive resources,
such as learning objects. It is developing services for the discovery,
sharing, and collaborative creation of learning resources, facilitating
a syndicated and personalised access to such resources.
