Contemporary information retrieval and filtering (IRaF) systems lack the appropriate representation of user information needs and information itself. There are heterogeneous sources of information, and information usually is ambiguous. This project aims on the improvement of the IRaF system in order to better satisfy user needs by providing training in the following areas: formal models of ontologies, software and tools for ontologies, Semantic Web and Web Services, human language technology, decision making. Scientific quality of the training is assured by a co-operation with leading research centres from Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, and UK.
