eXtended WordNet 

eXtended WordNet "The goal of this project is to develop a tool that takes as input the current or future versions of WordNet and automatically generates an eXtended WordNet that provides several important enhancements intended to remedy the present limitations of WordNet.


In the eXtended WordNet the WordNet glosses are syntactically parsed, transformed into logic forms and content words are semantically disambiguated.


eXtended WordNet is an ongoing project at the Human Language Technology Research Institute, University of Texas at Dallas."

Mapping WordNet to the SUMO Ontology 

Mapping WordNet to the SUMO Ontology is a paper Ian Niles of Teknowldege Corporation.
"Introduction
Ontologies are becoming extremely useful tools for sophisticated software engineering. Designing applications, databases, and knowledge bases with reference to a common ontology can mean shorter development cycles, easier and faster integration with other software and content, and a more scalable product. Although ontologies are a very promising solution to some of the most pressing problems that confront software engineering, they also raise some issues and difficulties of their own. Consider, for example, the questions below:
• How can a formal ontology be used effectively by those who lack extensive training in logic and mathematics?
• How can an ontology be used automatically by applications (e.g. Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing applications) that process free text?
• How can we know when an ontology is complete?
In this paper we will begin by describing the upper-level ontology SUMO (Suggested Upper Merged Ontology), which has been proposed as the initial version of an eventual Standard Upper Ontology (SUO). We will then describe the popular, free, and structured WordNet lexical database. After this preliminary discussion, we will describe the methodology that we are using to align WordNet with the SUMO. Finally, we will close this paper by demonstrating how this alignment of WordNet with SUMO will provide answers to the questions posed above."

Towards Semantic Virtual Environments 

Towards Semantic Virtual Environments is a paper by Karsten Otto
"Abstract.
The vision of a global cyberspace has inspired a lot of research in the field of Virtual Environments. However, virtual environments today remain island solutions, due to a diversity of incompatible data and protocol
designs. In this paper we introduce the concept of Semantic Virtual Environments (SVE), a scalable approach to this problem, based on the W3C Resource Description Framework. SVE provides a unified machine understandable view on virtual environments, which is suitable both for processing by software agents and presentation to human users."

RDF Data Access Use Cases and Requirements 

RDF Data Access Use Cases and Requirements
"Abstract

This document specifies use cases, requirements, and objectives for an RDF query language and data access protocol. It suggests how an RDF query language and data access protocol could be used in the construction of novel, useful Semantic Web applications in areas like web publishing, personal information management, transportation, and tourism."
