With the rapid development of RFID technology and EPC Network, more and more physical things from the real world are going to be tagged and connected to the web. Since the semantic web aims at connecting all things on the web, physical things, as parts of 'Things' on the web, are required to be described semantically in the semantic web environment. The authors' work focuses on semanticizing physical things' static and dynamic information, which are distributed at EPCISs in the EPC Network. RISE IS (RfId SEmantic Information Service) is a semantic bridge sitting between RDF-based EPCIS accessing applications and the EPC Network.
