The First International Workshop on the "Semantic Web: Models, Architectures and Management (SemWeb'2000)" has taken place in Lisbon, Portugal on September 22, 2000 in conjunction with ECDL2000 (European Conference on Digital Libraries).

The main themes addressed by the SemWeb'2000 comprised "Formal Foundations of Web Metadata Standards", "Semantic Interoperability Frameworks", and "Intelligent Information/Service Brokering Architectures". The workshop drew a high quality of submissions and a large audience of about 50. Out of 28 papers submitted, only 9 could be accepted for presentation.

The program also included a keynote presentation by Dr. Amit Sheth (University of Georgia, Talee Corp.), as well as an invited talk by Hans Georg Stork (European Commission) on the Commission's IST Programme vision and priorities on the Semantic Web.

Before that first workshop, Dieter Fensel initiated and oganized a closed seminar entitled "Semantic for the WWW" in March 2000.
