CALL FOR PAPERS
============================

Workshop on Hyperlinking in the Web of Linked Things - (WLT 2014) in
conjunction with the ACM HyperText Conference, Santiago del Chile,
Chile, September 1-4, 2014.


IMPORTANT DATES
------------------------------
Submission of papers: May 30 2014
Notification of authors: June 13 2014
Workshop day: September 01 2014


MOTIVATIONS
-----------------------
The idea of linking the Web and physical things is not new, but in the
last years this line of research has grown exponentially. The Web of
Things is about exploiting Web standards to connect physical objects.
They can be everyday objects with attached tokens linked to a virtual
counterpart on the Web, which users can scan to get information about
them. However they can also be smart physical objects with embedded
sensors and processing capabilities that make them able to stream data
and process them. Embedded tiny Web servers make even possible to
communicate to such objects using HTTP standards and to invoke
services provided by the objects. Users can perform such actions
remotely as well, thanks to their URI reference. This makes physical
things gateway to the world of physical and virtual things, through
hyperlinks between them. If physical things are also smart, they can
reason about their properties and be able to generate new links among
these physical things, by discovering similarities between them.

Direct consequences are the URI explosion and the need of new
approaches to manage heterogeneity. Linked Data principles advocate
the need of a single data model to represent things and the use of
typed hyperlinks, in order to make links or objects processable,
understandable and discoverable by machines.

The goal of this workshop is to discuss the issues that arise
concerning the new Web of Linked Things. It wishes to stimulate a
discussion about the current state-of-art and the ongoing projects
that concern the discovery and linking of things, not necessarily
limited to Linked Data-based approaches.


TOPICS
-----------
Relevant workshop topics include but are not limited to:
- Semantics for the Web of Thinks
- Linked data for the Web of Thinks
- Automatic generation of links
- Discovery of things
- Link annotation
- Link updating
- Adaptive links
- Methods to query data produced by things
- Nomadic objects and nomadic links
- User interaction with linked things

FORMAT
--------------
- Long papers (8 pages) for research papers.
- Short papers (4 pages) for position papers and research-in-progress papers.

All submissions should be formatted according to the official ACM SIG
proceedings template and submitted via EasyChair.
Accepted formats are Postscript and PDF.

The workshop will consist of a part of accepted papers presentation
and a part of a discussion among participants. We are considering the
opportunity to have an expert in the topic to give an invited talk.

PROCEEDINGS
-----------------------
Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings and will
be published in the Extended Proceedings of the ACM Hypertext 2014
Conference.
At least one author of an accepted paper needs to register for the WLT
2014 workshop.
