Text book

The text book in INFO216 is Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist, Second Edition: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL by Dean Allemang and James Hendler (Jun 3, 2011). Morgan Kaufmann. The whole book is obligatory reading.

Other materials

In addition, the materials listed below for each lecture is either mandatory or suggested reading. Make sure you download the papers and web sites in good time before the exam. That way you are safe if a site becomes unavailable or somehow damaged the last few days before the exam. Note that to download some of the papers, you need to be inside UiB's network. Either use a computer directly on the UiB network or connect to your UiB account with VPN if you are elsewhere.

Finally, the lectures and lectures notes are also in the curriculum.
