1st International Workshop on Semantics for Big Data on the Internet of
Things (
SemBIoT 2014)
Co-located with IEEE Conferecne
​ ​
on Big Data, Washington DC, USA

The goal of this workshop is to bridge the gap between research on Semantic
Web, IoT, sensor networks and data management and advance solutions to the
complex challenges of Big Data on the Internet of Things. A fundamental
theme of this workshop is the use of semantic techniques for enabling
automatic integration of heterogeneous data from different types of data
sources. Therefore, the issue of scalability of semantic techniques in
dynamic data source environments is a key focus of this workshop. Papers
that address at least two out of the Volume, Variety and Velocity
dimensions of Big Data are particularly encouraged.

The workshop seeks novel contributions to topics including (but not limited

   -     Techniques for establishing semantic interoperability between a
   large number of data source
   -     Reasoning and querying over distributed semantic data streams
   -     Distributed ontological reasoning with massive fact bases
   -     Semantic indexing techniques for discovery and search in dynamic
   data source environments
   -     Real time large scale stream data mining / analytics
   -     Lightweight metadata modeling for resource-constrained environments
   -     Security and privacy of data on the Internet of Things
   -     Benchmarks
   -     Algorithms and data analysis methods for extracting meaning and
   value from the Internet of Things
   -     Use case analysis involving the application of social media and
   Linked Data methodologies in real world scenarios
   -     Data management for targeted IoT applications (e.g. smart health,
   transportation, disaster response)
   -     Applications and use-cases
