ANR RNTL project e-WOK_HUB

Keywords : Ontology, Semantic Web, Semantic Annotation, Web service, Evolution.

Participants : Mohamed Bennis, Olivier Corby, Rose Dieng-Kuntz [ resp. ] , Priscille Durville, Fabien Gandon, Alain Giboin.

e-WOK_HUB is a 3-years ANR RNTL project, coordinated by the Edelweiss team, with IFP, BRGM, EADS, ENSMP, ENSMA and CRITT as partners. e-WOK_HUB aims at building a set of communicating portals (the e-WOK Hubs), offering both: (a) Web applications accessible to end-users through online interfaces, and (b) Web services accessible to applications through programmatic interfaces. As applicative objectives, e-WOK_HUB aims at enabling management of the memory of several projects on CO2 capture and storage, with use of results of technological watch on the domain.

Edelweiss is responsible for WP2 on Generic Tools and Services [Oops!] and worked on Support to ontology creation (see section 6.2.1 ), Management and composition of semantic Web Services (see section 6.3.6 ) and Annotation processing (see section 6.1.6 ).

This work is carried out in the framework of the P.A.S.S (Parfums, Arômes, Senteurs, Saveurs) Hub. It is a collaborative project with ImmunoSearch SARL, Institute of Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology (IPMC- CNRS/UNSA), I3S (UMR CNRS-UNSA) and industrialists (IRISPHARMA and Skinethic, the perfumers, l'Oréal, etc.)

The objective of ImmunoSearch is to design biomarkers for controlling the harmlessness of the molecules used in perfumes, aromatics and cosmetics. The purpose of this research is to conduct comparative studies of in vivo and in vitro test models on the skin (irritation, allergy) and to propose alternative methods defining the new norms applicable in this field. In this context, we aim at proposing methodological and software support for capitalization and valorization of knowledge resulting from experiments and techniques to preserve and reuse data. We rely on the semantic Web technologies (semantic annotations, ontologies, RDF, SPARQL...). More details on the work performed can be found at section 6.1.5 .
