Semantic search has been one of the major envisioned benefits of the Semantic Web since its emergence in the late 90’s [1]. Our demo shows a proposal towards this goal. One way to view a semantic search engine is as a tool that gets formal queries (e.g. in RDQL, RQL, SPARQL, or the like) from a client, executes them against an ontology-based knowledge base, and returns tuples of ontology values (resources) that satisfy the query [2]. While this conception of semantic search brings enormous advantages already, our work aims at taking a step beyond this. In our view of Information Retrieval in the Semantic Web, a search engine returns documents, rather than (or in addition to) exact values, in response to user queries. The engine should rank the documents, according to concept-based relevance criteria. The overall retrieval process is illustrated in Figure 1 (see [3] for more details of our research).
