EXCEL SHEET BASED SEMANTIC EMAIL Rajesekhar R, Dandolu December 10, 2004. 47 Pages Directed by: Dr. Guangming Xing Department of Computer Science Western Kentucky University The Semantic Web is an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation. The Semantic Web envisions a portion of the World-Wide Web in which the underlying data is machine understandable and can thus be exploited for improved querying, aggregation, and interaction. Excel Sheet Based Semantic Email is a type of Semantic Web application, which deals with the understanding of emails received and performing corresponding actions according to the schema specified in the email. The user can compose an email structure and specify all the semantic actions and necessary information related to a particular schema. The emails received are processed according to the schema format to which they belong and corresponding semantic actions are taken. In this project, Semantic Email is implemented by encoding the information in Excel Sheets. It could be reengineered to support heterogeneous semantic actions based on the particular application. The project can be enhanced providing a web interface, apart from the email system that is currently used as the way of communication. The clients can directly use the web page,
