Abstract:


Ever increasing capacities of contemporary storage devices inspire the vision to accumulate (personal) information without the need
of deleting old data over a long time-span. Hence the target of the SemanticLIFE project is to create a Personal Information Management
system for a human lifetime data. One of the most important characteristics of the system is its dedication to retrieve information in a very
eĀ±cient way. By adopting user demands regarding the reduction of ambiguities, our approach aims at a user-oriented and yet powerful enough system with a satisfactory query performance. In this paper, we introduce the query system of SemanticLIFE, the Virtual Query System, which uses emerging Semantic Web technologies to fulfill users'requirements.
