More and more applications are based on Semantic Web technology and use RDF as its data infrastructure.
Also, the desire for mobility is significantly increasing, and often there are situations where no network connectivity is found, thus data in the form of RDF must be made available offline.
Research questions addressed
- How can large RDF datasets be replicated and synchronized with minimum effort of time and transfer capacity under the consideration of conflicts caused by parallel updates?
- How can subsets of large RDF datasets be chosen for offline availability under the restrictions imposed by the caching system, including storage capacity, transfer bandwidth, and time restrictions?
- How can user interfaces be designed so that users not familiar with the details of Semantic Web technology can interact with such replication systems?
