POLICY 2007 is the eighth in a successful series of workshops which, since 1999,
have brought together leading researchers and industry experts to discuss problems,
solutions and experiences in developing policy-based systems.
This year, the workshop will have a special focus on the Semantic Web, an area that provides promising technologies for policy-based management both for the Web and other distributed systems such as the pervasive environments, grid-computing and multi-agent systems. Policy 2007 will bring together researchers of both the semantic web and policy in an attempt to explore the utility of semantic web policy frameworks to various applications.
