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.
