Abstract

This paper presents design and implementation issues related to a semantic web search system that is being specifically developed for the needs of the business community in Cyprus. More specifically, a market research has pointed out that content related to Cyprus products and/or services as well as content business registered under a domain name in the Cyprus republic can not be easily retrieved from existing search engines. A semantic web search engine system has been proposed to address this issue. The semantic web search engine system will be used primarily by the business community. For this purpose, an ontology has been developed for Cyprus products and services based on international standards. The ontology will be used with instantiations of Cyprus specific content. Complementary to that, a Web Crawler, an Ontology Parser and an Ontology Indexer have been implemented. An Ontology ranker is being developed to address issues related to the presentation of the results.
