CFP: Final Call for Posters and Demonstrations -- ISWC-2015 (Deadline extended to 7th July, 2015)

Apologies for cross posting!

====

*** Call for Posters and Demonstrations -- ISWC-2015 ***
*** Submission Deadline is extended to 7th July, 2015***


The ISWC 2015 Posters and Demonstrations Track complements the Research Paper track of the conference and offers an opportunity for presenting late-breaking research results, on-going research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. The informal setting of the Posters and Demonstrations Track encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the presenters, while offering participants an effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends and to network with other researchers.
 
We invite submissions relevant to the area of the Semantic Web and which address, but are not limited to, the topics of the Research Track; the Evaluation & experiments track; and the Semantic Web In Use Track. Technical posters, reports on Semantic Web software systems, descriptions of completed work, and work in progress are all welcome. Demonstrations are intended to showcase innovative Semantic Web related implementations and technologies. All submissions are intended to convey a scientific result or work in progress and should not be advertisements for commercial software packages.
 
Authors of full papers accepted for the Research Track; Replication, Benchmark and Data Track; and Semantic Web In Use Track are explicitly invited to submit a poster or a demonstration. The submission should be formatted as the other posters and demonstrations but must cite the accepted full paper and needs to include an explanation of its added value with respect to the conference paper. The added value could include: a) extended results and experiments not presented in the conference paper for space reasons, or b) a demonstration of a supporting prototype implementation.
 
Submission Information
Authors must submit a four-page extended abstract for evaluation. All submissions will undergo a common review process, including those related to already accepted full papers. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the Semantic Web, originality, potential significance, topicality and clarity. For demonstrations, authors are strongly encouraged to include in their submission a link to where the demo (live or recorded video) can be found. They should also make clear what exactly will be demonstrated to the participants (e.g., what data sets will be used, which functionalities will be shown).
 
All papers and abstracts have to be submitted electronically via the EasyChair conference submission system: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iswc2015pd 
 
Submissions must use the PDF file format and must adopt the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Details are provided on Springer's Author Instructions page. Submissions that exceed the page limit will be rejected without review.
 
At least one of the authors must be a registered participant at the conference, and attend the Poster/Demo Session to present the work. The abstracts of accepted posters and demonstrations will be given to all conference attendees and published on the conference web site, but will not be published by Springer in the printed conference proceedings. They will, however, be compiled into a CEUR-WS Proceedings for easy Web retrieval and archival.
 
Metadata for all successful submissions will be included in the conference metadata corpus. Detailed information about metadata creation will be provided with the acceptance notification of the successful submissions.

Important Dates
- Poster & Demo Submission: July 7, 2015
- Notifications: Aug 6, 2015
- Camera-Ready Versions: August 21, 2015
 
All deadlines are Hawaii time (HST).

[CFP] Semantic Web Journal Special Issue on Quality Management of Semantic Web Assets (Data, Services and Systems)

The standardization and adoption of Semantic Web technologies has 
resulted in  a variety of assets, including an unprecedented volume of 
data being semantically enriched and systems and services, which consume 
or publish this data. Although gathering, processing and publishing data 
is a step towards further adoption of Semantic Web, quality does not yet 
play a central role in these assets (e.g., data lifecycle, 
system/service development).

Quality management essentially refers to activities and tasks involved 
to guarantee a certain level of consistency and to meet the quality 
requirements for the assets. In general, quality management consists of 
the following four phases and components: (i) quality planning, (ii) 
quality control, (iii) quality assurance and (iv) quality improvement.

The quality planning phase in the Semantic Web typically involves the 
design of procedures, strategies and policies to support the management 
of the assets. The quality control and assurance components have their 
primary aim in preventing errors and to meet quality requirements 
pertaining to the Semantic Web standards. A core part for both 
components are quality assessment methods which provide the necessary 
input for the controlling and assurance tasks.

Quality assessment of Semantic Web Assets (data, services and systems), 
in particular, presents new challenges that were not handled before in 
other research areas. Thus, adopting existing approaches for data 
quality assessment is not a straightforward solution. These challenges 
are related to the openness of the Semantic Web, the diversity of the 
information and the unbounded, dynamic set of autonomous data sources, 
publishers and consumers (legal and software agents). Additionally, 
detecting the quality of available data sources and making the 
information explicit is yet another challenge. Moreover, noise in one 
data set, or missing links between different data sets, propagates 
throughout the Web of Data, and imposes great challenges on the data 
value chain.

In case of systems and services, different implementations follow the 
specifications for RDF and SPARQL to varying extents, or even propose 
and offer new, non-standardized extensions. This causes strong 
incompatibilities between systems, e.g., between the used SPARQL 
features in the query engines and support features in RDF stores. The 
potential heterogeneity and incompatibility poses several challenges for 
the quality assessments in and for such systems and services.

Eventually, quality improvement methods are used to further enhance the 
value of the Semantic Web Assets. One important step to improve the 
quality of data is identifying the root cause of the problem and then 
designing corresponding data improvement solutions. These solutions 
select the most effective and efficient strategies and related set of 
techniques and tools to improve quality. Quality improvement metrics for 
products and services entails understanding and improving operational 
processes and establishing valid and reliable service performance measures.

This Special Issue is addressed to those members of the community 
interested in providing novel methodologies or frameworks in managing, 
assessing, monitoring, maintaining and improving the quality of the 
Semantic Web data, services and systems and also introduce tools and 
user interfaces which can effectively assist in this management.

Topics of Interest
We welcome original high quality submissions on (but are not restricted 
to) the following topics:
- Methodologies and frameworks to plan, control, assure or improve the 
quality of - - Semantic Web Assets
- Quality exploration and analysis interfaces
- Quality monitoring

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

The  series of  SSWS workshops  aim at  creating a  forum for  discussing a
critical issue for the Semantic Web, that is, scalability.  As the Semantic
Web evolves, scalability becomes increasingly important. This workshop will
focus on addressing  the scalability issue with respect  to the development
and deployment of  knowledge base systems on the  Semantic Web.  Typically,
such systems deal with information described in Semantic Web languages like
OWL and RDF(S),  and provide services such as  storing, reasoning, querying
and debugging.  There are two basic requirements for these systems.  First,
they have  to satisfy the application's semantic  requirements by providing
sufficient reasoning support.  Second, they  must scale well in order to be
of  practical use.   Given the  sheer size  and distributed  nature  of the
Semantic Web, these requirements  impose additional challenges beyond those
addressed by earlier knowledge base systems.  This has been well recognized
by  the community  as demonstrated  by  the excitement  around the  billion
triples challenge.

We expect that the above issue is going to challenge the Semantic Web for a
long period of time and significant effort is needed in order to tackle the
problem.  This half day workshop seeks to bring  together  researchers  and
practitioners to  share their recent ideas and  progresses towards building
scalable knowledge base systems for the Semantic Web.

The workshop will be centered on  the discussion of three major aspects: 1)
foundations,   methods   and   technologies   for   pushing   forward   the
state-of-the-art;  2)   performance  evaluation  and   related  principles,
methodologies and  tools; 3) identification of important  issues and future
research directions.  Topics of interest  for the workshop include, but are
not limited to:

   * Semantic Web repositories
   * Reasoning mechanisms, techniques and systems
   * Query evaluation and optimization
   * Performance evaluation and benchmarks
   * Distributed knowledge base systems and P2P systems
   * Large scale knowledge base management
   * Semantic Web-based information integration

We expect that  the outcome of the workshop will  benefit not only Semantic
Web  developers but also  Semantic Web  evaluators and  end users.  We also
welcome   participants  from   related  disciplines   such   as  Artificial
Intelligence, Databases and Information Integration.

Annotations that aren't safely ignored (was Re: How to specify OWL version in a document)

Like ic:imports? :-) [1]  Or trowl:Nbox? [2]

There are already cases where annotations are used as more than simple metadata. 

Many protocols have ways to specify that certain extensions are mandatory, so that if a message is received with an unknown, mandatory extension, an error is signalled, with other unknown extensions simply ignored.

Maybe we could use annotation prop... oh, right.

One convention that might work would be to use a faux property (e.g.  kludge:isKnownMagicAnnotationProperty) for such mandatory annotation properties, and make contradictory positive and negative assertions about the property.

Tools that know the right magic can discard these assertions; tools that know about the convention can signal a useful error; tools that do not know about the convention can detect an inconsistency.

An alternative approach would be to use disjoint metaclasses to force inconsistency (might give better error messages / faster failure for EL).

(There are also recommendations like SKOS that use annotation properties, instead of data or object properties, for properties that are central to the subject area. This is problematic for reasoners using the direct semantics.)

ABOUT OTM 2015

--------------

 

Of course as a past participant, you are already familiar with the OnTheMove concept and format. This 14th edition of OnTheMove (OTM 2015) as before is composed of three interrelated yet complementary scientific conferences that together attempt to span a relevant range of the advanced research on, and cutting-edge development and application of, information handling and systems in the wider current context of ubiquitous distributed computing.

 

 

-  CoopIS'15, Cooperative Information Systems, our flagship event in its 23rd edition since its inception in 1993, invites fundamental contributions on principles and applications of distributed and collaborative computing in the broadest scientific sense in workflows of networked organizations, enterprises, governments or just ad-hoc communities

 

CoopIS’15 PC co-Chairs:

 * Georg Weichhart (Profactor GmbH + Johannes Kepler University, Austria)

 * Heiko Ludwig, IBM Almaden Research Center, USA

 * Michael Rosemann, Queensland University  of  Technology, Australia

 

 

-  Cloud & Trusted Computing’15 (C&TC’15), is the successor of DOA (Distributed Object Applications) and focuses on critical aspects of infrastructure for cloud computing, specifically spanning issues of trust, reputation, and security

 

Cloud & Trusted Computing’15 PC Chairs:

 * Claudio Ardagna, Universita' degli Studi di Milano, Italy

 * Meiko Jensen, University of South Denmark, Denmark

 

 

-  ODBASE'15, Ontologies, Databases and Applications of SEmantics covers the fundamental study of structured and semi-structured data, including linked [open] data, and the meaning of data as is needed for today’s databases, and the role of data and semantics in design methodologies and new applications

 

ODBASE’15 PC Chairs:

 * Yuan An, Drexel University, USA

 * Min Song, Yonsei University, Korea

 * Markus Strohmaier, University of Koblenz-Landau, Germany

 

 

Themes

——————

For 2015 again a number of broadly interrelated themes have been identified— submissions w.r.t. these themes should therefore carefully position themselves:

 

   * Mobile aspects of secure computing in general as a basis for trusted use of Cloud-based IS

   * Infrastructure and semantics for big data and the internet in general

   * Role of community-driven, semantics-based business intelligence in cooperative IS

   * Implementation and application of open innovation in ecosystems of organizations and enterprises

 

 

12th OTM Academy — not your “usual PhD symposium”…

———————————

We especially also wish to draw attention to our refreshed OTM Academy, a unique and specially developed comprehensive program for PhD students and their advisors. Accepted submissions under this program will enjoy a thorough and interactive critique by the OTMA Faculty of presentation, both poster and paper, about their PhD project as well as a published contribution in our LNCS workshop proceedings, and much more— check its own website! http://www.onthemove-academy.org/

 

Furthermore, there is the recently added Industry Case Studies Program (ICSP), in which successful submitters may use OnTheMove as the forum for presenting cutting-edge applications of distributed computing, receiving analysis and critique by the attending scientific community.

[extended deadline] LD4KD2015 - ECML/PKDD workshop on Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery

** apologies for cross-posting **

================================
LD4KD2015
2nd Workshop on Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery

http://events.kmi.open.ac.uk/ld4kd2015/

co-located with the European Conference on Machine Learning and
Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery 2015 (ECML/PKDD 2015)
September 7th - 11th 2015, Porto, Portugal
(http://www.ecmlpkdd2015.org/)

================================

Linked Data have attracted a lot of attention in recent years, as the
underlying technologies and principles provide new ways, following the
Semantic Web standards, to overcome typical data management and
consumption issues such as reliability, heterogeneity, provenance or
completeness.  However, the way in which Linked Data can be applicable
and beneficial to the Knowledge Discovery (KDD) process is still not
completely understood.  Many aspects of KDD could in fact benefit from
Linked Data, e.g. mining Linked Data sources, using Linked Data to
enrich, represent or integrate local data for data preparation,
interpretation or visualisation.

The LD4KD2015 workshop encourages the participation of researchers from
the Knowledge Discovery field to discuss and get informed about the use,
benefits and challenges of Linked Data, while Linked Data researchers
can take advantage of and adapt Knowledge Discovery methods in their
domain.

*SCOPE*

We welcome high quality position papers, research papers and demos in
which
(1) Linked Data are used as support of Knowledge Discovery processes to
    extract useful knowledge, or
(2) Knowledge Discovery techniques are adapted to work and possibly
    extend Linked Data.

Topics of either theoretical and applied interest include, but are not
limited to:

Linked Data for data pre-processing: cleaning, sorting, filtering or
