Websoft Research Group

The World Wide Web (WWW), which was invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1989, has become indispensable in our life. The Web makes business and our daily life much easier. In 1998, Tim proposed a roadmap for the so-called Semantic Web. In 2001, W3C started the Semantic Web Activity. Five years later, Tim and his colleagues called for creating a science of the Web.

Since 2002, our group has been researching on the Semantic Web technologies, together with the research community. In November 2009, we founded the Web Software Research Group (Websoft) at the Department of Computer Science and Technology, Nanjing University. Our research interests include Semantic Web, Web science and novel software technology for the Web and big data. Our missions are to conduct cutting-edge research on novel Web softwares and to make the vision of Semantic Web become reality.

We are always looking for highly-motivated and hard-working students who would like to contribute to the Web! Scholarship is ready. Interested students are welcome to email us for further details.
