Wimmics stands for Web-Instrumented Man-Machine Interactions, Communities, and Semantics. Our challenge is to bridge formal semantics and social semantics on the web. We are a joint research team between INRIA Sophia Antipolis – Méditerranée and I3S (CNRS and Université Nice Sophia Antipolis). Our research areas are graph-oriented knowledge representation, reasoning and operationalization to model and support actors, actions and interactions in web-based epistemic communities. The application of our research is supporting and fostering interactions in online communities and management of their resources. Wimmics is a follow-up of the teams Acacia, Edelweiss and Kewi.
