Corese (COnceptual REsource Search Engine) is an RDF(S)-dedicated engine based on conceptual graphs. It enables to load RDFS schemas and RDF annotations and to transform them into conceptual graph formalism. It then enables to query the base of annotations thus created, by using the projection operator offered by the conceptual graph formalism. The result obtained is translated into RDF to be returned back in response to the request.
Corese takes benefits of an INRIA operation of software development (ODL) intended to improve quality of the implementation in order to support its diffusion.
Corese is used as search engine:
for the KMP project on skills management with Telecom Valley,
in the Ligne de Vie project on health care network,
in the MEAT project on experiment memory on transcriptome analysis,
in our co-operation with EADS.
Corese was the cornerstone of four co-operations of the Acacia team:
the co-operative research action ESCRIRE ,
the Color action Aprobatiom with CSTB.
Corese was registered at APP.
Corese was made available to:
T-Systems NOVA (Deutsche Telekom),
CSELT (Telecom Italia),
Mainline team at ESSI,
CETU (Centre d'étude des tunnels du Ministère de l'Equipement).

In 2004, Corese was presented in demonstration to:
IPMC, I3S for the MEAT Cooperation
Software Café on Corese,
The project of creation of the start-up eCore in order to market a solution for skills management based on Corese was prize-winner (category emergence) in the 2004 National Competition for support to creation of enterprises of innovative technologies, competition organized by the Ministery of Research with participation of Anvar and of Social European Fund (FSE).
Olivier Corby and Rose Dieng-Kuntz gave an interview on Corese to Corriere della Serra and to Nice-Matin.
