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

4th International Workshop on Methods, Evaluation, Tools and 
Applications
for the Creation and Consumption of Structured Data for the e-Society
(META4eS’15)

Part of the OnTheMove Conferences & Workshops, Rhodes, Greece,
26-30 October 2015

Website: http://www.onthemove-conferences.org/index.php/meta4es-2015

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

Supported by IFIP TC 12 WG 12.7 – Social Networking Semantics and 
Collective
Intelligence and The Big data roadmap and cross-disciplinarY community 
for
addressing socieTal Externalities (BYTE, http://byte-project.eu/) 
Project

SCOPE

The future e-Society is an e-inclusive society based on the extensive 
use of
digital technologies at all levels of interaction between its members. 
It is a
society that evolves based on knowledge and that empowers individuals by
creating virtual communities that benefit from social inclusion, access 
to
information, enhanced participation, interaction and freedom of 
expression,
among other. This leads to radical changes in the dynamics and the 
interaction
between its members, determining new economic scenarios.

In this context, the role of the World Wide Web and the information and
communication technologies (ICTs) in the way people and organizations 
exchange
information and interact in the social cyberspace is crucial. Large 
amounts of
structured data – Big (Open) Data – are being generated, published and 
shared
and a growing number of services and applications emerge from it.

The structured data that are being published – e.g., as RDF on the Web 
of Data
– is the result of current popular initiatives adopted by a growing 
number of
actors from transversal domains (e.g. governments, city municipalities, 
etc.).
Managing such data in order to make sense of it by producing services 
and
applications for end-user consumption from government and public body 
data is
presently a huge challenge for the research community, going towards a 
Value
Web. From a business perspective, the (dynamic) composition of services 
using
Big Structured Data stimulates the market.

These initiatives take into account methods for the creation, storage 
and
consumption of increasing amounts of structured data and tools that make
possible their application by end-users to real-life situations, as well 
as
their evaluation. The final aim is to lower the barrier between 
end-users and
ICT through contributions to the e-Society such as multilingual 
information,
information visualization, privacy and trust, rich multimedia retrieval, 
etc.

The applications must be designed in such a way to help people use their
knowledge at best and generate new knowledge in return, while keeping 
intact
their privacy and confidentiality, whether it is in e-Culture, 
e-Government,
e-Democracy, e-Health, or in other areas of the e-Society.

The fourth edition of the Meta4eS workshop aims at bringing together
researchers, professionals and experts interested to discuss, 
demonstrate and
share best practices, ideas and results around the creation, management 
and,
particularly, consumption of structured data for the e-Society. The 
focus will
be both on scientific and technological research and on industrial use 
cases
from various application domains.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

This year, Meta4eS has a special focus on cross-disciplinary communities 
and
applications associated with Big Data in any possible domain (e.g., 
Culture,
Tourism, Smart Manufacturing and Production, Smart City and Digital 
City,
Health, Government and Public Sector, Environmental and Geo-Spatial, 
Ambient
Assisted Living, Energy, Communications, Social Media) and their impact 
on the
e-Society.

Topics related to methods, tools and applications for the Big Data Value 
Chain
for the e-Society and their evaluation are of interest. These include 
(but are
not limited to) best practices, case studies and tendencies related to:

- Big Data for Cross-disciplinary Communities
- Societal Impacts of Big Data
- Research Roadmapping based on Societal Externalities of Big Data
- Big Data Value Chain in e-Society
- Smart Data
- Data Visualization Tools for e-Society
- Knowledge Creation, Sharing and Retrieval for e-Society
- Knowledge Evolution from Social Processes
- Use of Natural Language Resources in the Creation and Consumption of
  Structured Data
- Exploiting Multilingual Terminology for Structured Data Consumption
- Best Practices in Consuming Big Structured Data for e-Society
- Lightweight Ontology Creation Methodologies for e-Society
- Ontology in Use for e-Society Applications across Communities and 
Disciplines
- Semantic Information Processing for better understanding our society
- Service composition for e-Society
- Security, Privacy and Trust in Consuming Big Structured Data
- Evaluation Methodologies
- Usability Testing applied to Big Structured Data in e-Society
- End-user experience with Big (Open) Data
- Research Projects and Live Demos regarding Applications of Big 
Structured
  Data for e-Society

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three members of the 
workshop
Program Committee, based on originality, significance, technical 
soundness and
clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English and are of two
types:regular papers and short papers. Papers should not exceed 5,000 
words
(excluding references), and should not exceed 10 pages in the final
camera-ready format. Short papers, of at most 5 pages in the final 
camera-ready
format, may relate to a software tool demonstration, describe a small 
case
study, or explore preliminary ideas about a relevant topic. Papers 
should be
formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style and submitted in 
PDF
format. Author instructions can be found at:
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

Paper submission site:
http://submissions.onthemove-conferences.org/2015/meta4es

Papers, demos and posters presenting ongoing studies relevant to the 
workshop’s
topics are encouraged for submission.

All accepted workshop papers (regular papers or short papers) will be 
published
by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and indexed by ISI, 
ACM
Digital Library and DBLP.

Failure to commit to presentation at the workshop automatically excludes 
a
paper from the Conference Proceedings.
