NCSR "Demokritos" is the largest self-governing research organisation, under the supervision of the Greek Government. NCSR participates in MedIEQ with the Software and Knowledge Engineering Laboratory (SKEL) of its Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications (http://www.iit.demokritos.gr/skel [1]).

SKEL work focuses on intelligent systems and services for the Web and the Semantic Web, and more specifically: web content collection and extraction for specific thematic areas, knowledge discovery from web usage data, creation and maintenance of ontologies to support the collection and extraction tasks, natural interaction with web-based information systems.

SKEL work is structured around the following major R&D activities:

During 2000-2005, SKEL coordinated or participated in various EC and national funded projects. SKEL researchers also initiated the cooperation with research groups outside Europe (USA, Canada, Singapore, Japan) which so far involves the exchange of research results and the issue of common publications, but which may lead to also funded projects in the near future. During this period, SKEL researchers published their research results in a large number of papers in international scientific journals, and in the proceedings of international conferences and workshops.

SKEL strategy for research emphasises on the development of the necessary infrastructure to support research activities and the development of intelligent systems and services. This effort has resulted in a variety of tools and resources, some of which are available to and are being used by the international research community:
