International Workshop on Context, Interpretation and Meaning (CIM2014)

http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/~fm206/cim14/

19 or 20 October 2014

Riva del Garda, Trentino, Italy

Collocated with the 13th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2014).


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


One size does not fit all use cases when inter-relating real-world
datasets. For example should data about two cities be matched on their
geographic coverage, name or regional government boundary? It depends upon
the use to which the data will be put. For emergency response you could
imagine needing all available data while for longitudinal studies more
precision would be required. Similar issues arise in life sciences when
relating genes, proteins and nucleotides, or chemistry when matching
compounds.


Ontology alignment and linked data have to date focused on generating a
mapping for a given application. This workshop will explore the potential
for reusing, reinterpreting and contextualising mappings, and on whether or
not they can be effectively crowd-sourced. To do so, the way in which the
mapping has been generated needs to be understood so that the implied
meaning of the operational equivalence can be interpreted.


CIM2014 aims to bring together different communities: those who create
mappings with those who rely on them for developing novel applications. We
are seeking to foster discussion and debate between the communities through
face-to-face discussion in breakout groups during the workshop. This will
be seeded through short presentations about real-world challenges and
state-of-the-art solutions. The goal is to produce a common vision of the
future for the communities.


Topics of Interest

   - Dynamic linking and matching
   - Collective Interpretation of linked data
   - Background knowledge in matching
   - Crowd-sourcing structured data
   - Incentive structures for creating and mapping data
   - Machine-learning over incomplete structured and semi-structured data
   - Provenance of matches and data
   - Justification of mappings
   - Approximate matching
   - Informed decision support


Workshop Format and Location

CIM2014 is a half-day workshop co-located with ISWC 2014. It  focuses on
community building and discussions.  It will involve:

   - Short talks: papers will be limited to 12 minutes with 3 minutes for
   questions.
   - Demonstration session: showcasing existing tools and approaches
   - Break-out groups formed sorted according to interest.
   - Feedback from break-out groups and open discussion
   - Discussions of future vision for the community


Paper Submission Instructions

We solicit papers of 5-12 pages that report on existing tools, work in
progress or future visions. Papers should aim to encourage debate and
discussion about the topics of the workshop.  The best research papers will
be nominated for publication in the Journal of Data Semantics.  Position
papers are also very welcome.


All papers have to be submitted electronically via the EasyChair conference
submission system https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cim20140.


All submissions must be in English. Submissions must be in PDF formatted in
the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS). For details on the LNCS style, see Springer's Author
Instructions (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0
).  CIM-2014 submissions are not anonymous.


At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop
and the ISWC conference and present the paper at the workshop.  The
workshop proceedings will be published online.
