Abstract: Semantic Annotation is a basic technology for intelligent content and is bene cial in a wide range of content-oriented intelligent applications, esp. in the area of the Semantic Web. In this paper we present our work in ontology-based semantic annotation, which is embedded in a scenario of a knowledge portal application. Starting with seemingly good and bad manual semantic annotation, we describe our experiences made within the KA2 initiative. The experiences gave us the starting point for developing an ergonomic and knowledge base-supported annotation tool. Furthermore, the annotation tool described are currently extended with mechanisms for semi-automatic information-extraction based annotation. Supporting the evolving nature of semantic content we additionally describe our idea of evolving ontologies supporting semantic annotation.

This paper has been presented at the COLING-2000 Workshop on Semantic Annotation and Intelligent Content, Centre Universitaire, Luxembourg, 5.-6. August, 2000.
