Objective

Today successful competing on the market requires better handling of external and internal information in companies and local governments. Their managers demand tools that could gather, process and store information and knowledge - management information s ystems (MIS). Our key competence is information filtering for MIS. The information filtering system is an access service that stands between information source and information consumer, providing a personalised view on the information space. Contemporary i nformation retrieval and filtering (IRaF) systems lack the appropriate representation of user information needs and information itself. This has motivated us to undertake a project that would enhance our IRaF key competencies, and also improve IRaF system in order to better satisfy user needs. Our innovative concept is to join the achievements in information filtering, knowledge representation and decision support systems. Semantic Web technologies and especially the use of ontologies, are expected to enabl e a much higher degree of automation in performing operations pertaining to the searching and extracting information. In order to enhance the capabilities of IRaF we need training in the following areas: formal models of ontologies, software and tools for ontologies, Semantic Web and Web Services, human language technology, decision making. Our project is scheduled for 4 years and requires 48 person-months (24 p-m for incoming). Scientific quality of the training is assured by a co-operation with leadingres earch centres from Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, and UK. The main goal of the knowledge transfer is to build new competencies of our Department in order to achieve a European level of research in information retrieval and filtering from the In ternet. The project would enable us to further develop our specialization: Knowledge Management. We are interested in multidisciplinary aspects: economics, management sciences, Information Technology and law.
