Bios for conference booklet: 
St├ęphane is currently working towards a master's degree in Semantic Web at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), National University of Ireland, Galway. He is particularly interested in optimizing SPARQL queries and comparing the performance of well-known stores such as Sesame, Jena, YARS, ARC, and Virtuoso.

Overview

The Drupal community is jumping in the Semantic Web bandwagon. Semantic Web Applications built with Drupal are starting to emerge from the different use cases of the community.

The Neologism project is one of the applications that benefits from the power of Drupal, but also constitutes a building block for the Semantic Web.

Neologism is a lightweight web-based vocabulary editor and publishing tool built with Drupal. It makes vocabulary authoring easy and fun. Just create a vocabulary, add classes and properties to it, and your vocabulary is instantly published and available online! Several formats are supported via content negotiation: HTML, RDF/XML and N3. All the term URIs are dereferenceable and point to their human readable description.

Some other Semantic Web projects could also be presented in this BoF.

Agenda

* What is the Semantic Web
* Neologism use case: how Drupal helped us
* Why a Vocabulary editor?
* Other Semantic Web projects built with Drupal
* The future of the Semantic Web and Drupal
