    55While E-Mail can be archived long-term server-side using the IMAP standard, there is no standard for archiving IM conversations. Chat logs are mostly stored locally on the client machine, using IM-client-specific file formats. This has several disadvantages: Storing the archive locally on the client computers is inconvenient when using more than one computer, archives is spread over different installations, are out of sync and get easily lost. Using proprietary, client- and protocol-specific formats to store the information makes it hard to manage and search the stored information using other interfaces as the client UI.

     7This thesis addresses these issues by developing [http://nabu.opendfki.de/ Nabu], a system providing server-side logging of instant messages. 
    88It tries to integrate instant messaging into the efforts made in the [http://www.ryerson.ca/~dgrimsha/courses/cps720_02/resources/Scientific%20American%20The%20Semantic%20Web.htm Semantic Web] community to store and retrieve information in a unified way. It uses the semantic web standard [http://www.w3.org/RDF/ RDF] to describe the stored information on the server. For retrieving the stored information, it  supports the [http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-query/ SPARQL] query language, which is currently in an ongoing standardization process at the W3C.
