Along with the expansion of Open Data and according to the latest EU directives for open access, the attention of public administration, research bodies and business is on web publishing of data in open format. However, a specialized search engine on the datasets, with similar role to that of Google for web pages, is not yet widespread. The seminar will present the Online Data Integration Network (ODINet)project, which aims to define a new technological framework for access to and online dissemination of structured and heterogeneous data through innovative methods of cataloging, searching and display of data on the web. In the presentation we will focus on the semantic component of our platform, emphasizing how we built and used ontologies. We will further describe the Social Network Analysis (SNA) techniques we exploited to analyze it and to retrieve the required information. A demo of the search engine will be shown during the seminar and its peculiarities will be discussed with the participants.
