Master of Science in Informatics at Grenoble, Option Artificial Intelligence and the Web, year 2016/2017

I give a course on the foundations for processing tree-shaped data with an application to XML technologies in the Master of Science in Informatics at Grenoble at the University Grenoble Alpes. The course is named "The semantic web: from XML to OWL". The part entitled "Foundations for XML" covers languages, algorithms and tools for the correct and efficient processing of tree-shaped data, and for the analysis of queries and programs that manipulate trees. A brief course description presents the course contents and outline. Pointers to teaching material can be found below:
