Dr. Mark Burstein wins prestigious SWSA award

SIFT Principal Researcher, Dr. Mark Burstein and colleagues have been awarded the Semantic Web Science Association (SWSA) 10 year award.

This award recognizes the highest impact papers from the ISWC proceedings ten years prior (i.e., in 2011 they honor a paper from 2001). The decision is based on the impact of the paper measured primarily, but not exclusively, on the number of citations to the papers from the proceedings in the intervening decade. 

Among the papers from the Semantic Web Working Symposium in 2001 (the precursor of ISWC), Dr. Burstein and his collegues paper on DAML-S was the most cited paper.

The paper titled "DAML-S: Semantic Markup for Web Services" was written by: Anupriya Ankolekar, Mark H. Burstein, Jerry R. Hobbs, Ora Lassila, David L. Martin, Sheila A. McIlraith, Srini Narayanan, Massimo Paolucci, Terry R. Payne, Katia P. Sycara, Honglei Zeng
