The Semantic Evaluation At Large Scale (SEALS) project will develop a new research infrastructure dedicated to the evaluation of semantic technologies. The infrastructure, developed jointly by the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid's School of Computing and nine other European universities, will provide evaluation services for different types of semantic technologies.

The SEALS project plans to develop an infrastructure, called the SEALS Platform, which will provide services for the evaluation of semantic technologies. The project also will organize a series of international evaluation campaigns about different types of semantic technologies with the intention of providing a discussion forum on semantic technology evaluation and object evaluation results for the most relevant existing technologies. The results of the different semantic technologies obtained through the evaluation process will support the currently difficult tasks of selecting the appropriate semantic technologies for different objectives, and obtaining recommendations to facilitate the use and development of additional semantic technologies.

The evaluations provided by the SEALS Platform will enable researchers to ground their research on objective and replicable evaluation results, and share and discuss those results with other researchers. The long-term goal of the SEALS project is to establish a research infrastructure that is sustained by a community based on the evaluation of semantic technologies.
