This page is a sort of bucket where he puts something concerns his works, publications, hobbies, and the like, but you may find some more information about teaching material and courses at his institutional homepage (maybe). So, if you were looking for something interesting, smart and curious, this is not the right place. Sincerely.
Just in case you are still there, reading words and words of non-sense grammatical constructions, it is your choice.
Silvio Peroni holds a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and he is a researcher at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Bologna. He is an expert in document markup and semantic descriptions of bibliographic entities using OWL ontologies. He is one of the main developers of SPAR (Semantic Publishing and Referencing) Ontologies that provide RDF descriptions of bibliographic entities, citations, reference collections and library catalogues, the structural and rhetorical components of documents, and roles, statuses and workflows in publishing. His work on Semantic Publishing topics has been recently published by Springer in a book entitled Semantic Web Technologies and Legal Scholarly Publishing.
Among his research interests are Semantic Web technologies, markup languages for complex documents, design patterns for digital documents and ontology modelling, and automatic processes of analysis and segmentation. In particular, his recent works concern the empirical analysis of the nature of citations, the study of visualisation and browsing interfaces for semantic data, and the development of ontologies to manage, integrate and query bibliographic information and fashion design data according to temporal and contextual constraints.
Graffoo (Graphical Framework for OWL Ontologies) is an open source tool that can be used to present the classes, properties and restrictions within OWL ontologies, or sub-sections of them, as clear and easy-to-understand diagrams.
LODE (Live OWL Documentation Environment) is a web service that automatically extracts classes, object properties, data properties, named individuals, annotation properties, general axioms and namespace declarations from an OWL ontology available on the Web, and renders them as ordered lists, together with their textual definitions, in a human-readable HTML page designed for browsing and navigation by means of embedded links.
KCE Environment for OWL ontologies is a Web application that allows to extract the key concepts from an online-available OWL ontology.
XML2EARMARK is a Web application that allows to convert an XML document into an EARMARK one (linearised in RDF/XML).
Argument Model Ontology (a.k.a. AMO) is an ontology that aims to encode the Toulmin's theory through OWL classes and properties, in order to describe a web of inter-linked entities that participate in one or more arguments.
EARMARK Ontology is an OWL 2 DL ontology that defines document meta-markup. It is an ontologically precise definition of markup that instantiates the markup of a text document as an independent OWL document outside of the text strings it annotates.
EARMARK Changes Ontology (a.k.a. EChO) is an ontology that extends the EARMARK ontology and includes the OWL 2 DL implementation of FRBR and the Provenance Ontology, so as to keep track of all the changes and provenance data related to different versions of the same document.
EARMARK Overlapping Ontology (a.k.a. EOO), an ontology for modelling and inferring overlapping scenarios in EARMARK documents.
The SPAR Ontologies form a suite of orthogonal and complementary OWL 2 DL ontology modules for the creation of comprehensive machine-readable RDF metadata for every aspect of semantic publishing and referencing.
