Abstract

Authoring support for semantic annotations represent the wiki way of the Semantic Web, ultimately leading to the wiki version of the Semantic Web's eternal dilemma: why should authors correctly annotate their content? The obvious solution is to make the ratio between the needed effort and the acquired advantages as small as possible. Two are, at least, the specificities that set wikis apart from other Web-accessible content in this respect: social aspects (wikis are often the expression of a community) and technical issues (wikis are edited "on-line"). Being related to a community, wikis are intrinsically associated to the model of knowledge of that community, making the relation between wiki content and ontologies the result of a natural process. Being edited on-line, wikis can benefit from a synergy of Web technologies that support all the information sharing process, from authoring to delivery. In this paper we present an approach to reduce the authoring effort by providing ontology-based tools to integrate models of knowledge with authoring-support technologies, using a functional approach to content fragment creation that plays nicely with the "wiki way" of managing information.
