WebLearn CNRS Specific Action
Rose Dieng-Kuntz, Monique GrandBastien (LORIA - Université Nancy I) and Danièle Hérin (LIRMM) co-ordinate the national CNRS Specific Action (SA) on Semantic Web for E-Learning (to which the local WebLearn Colors (see above) belongs). In addition to the local teams involved in the WebLearn Colors, the WebLearn SA involve HEUDIASYC (Université Technologique de Compiègne), IMAG-CLIPS (Université Joseph Fourier & CNRS & INPG), LORIA, LIUPPA (Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour) Pau University, the LIASC (ENST Bretagne), and LPS - Université Pierre Mendès France (see http://www.lirmm.fr/~touitou/as-weblearn/ ).
We take part in the workpackages "Ontologies for e-Learning", "Composition", "Tools for Semantic Web and for e-Learning".
This year, two WebLearn workshops took place in Montpellier (on March ) and in Grenoble on September 15-16. Sylvain Dehors, Rose Dieng-Kuntz attended both workshops. Fabien Gandon attended the Montpellier's one and Alain Giboin attended the Grenoble's one.
Sylvain Dehors presented a synthesis on ontologies for e-Learning, on annotation tools and on e-Learning tools, as well as the experiment for e-Learning set up with I3S.
Rose Dieng-Kuntz presented a synthesis on Semantic Web tools.
Fabien Gandon presented a state of the art and a proposal for integrating existing ontology engineering approaches.
We take part in the writing of the synthesis and prospective report, that will be one of the main results of the WebLearn AS & Colors, in addition to the final workshop of the WebLearn AS & Colors that will hold on May 31, 2005, in the framework of the AFIA Platform.
Fabien Gandon was asked by the CNRS Specific Action on Model-Driven Architecture to participate in the writing of a comparison between meta-modeling frameworks as proposed by the OMG and the semantic web frameworks as proposed by the W3C.
