In the recent years, there has been an increasing speed and volume of 
data production in several domains, such as Internet of Things, Social 
Networks and Smart Cities. An interesting feature of such data is that 
its utility is often related to time: the sooner the data is processed, 
the higher is the value. Consequently, techniques to process huge 
amounts of heterogeneous streaming data in a continuous fashion are 
getting more and more important.

Data Stream Management Systems and Complex Event Processing provide 
solid foundations for continuously querying and monitoring data streams. 
However, other kinds of processing are desired, such as deductive and 
inductive inference, where domain models provide background knowledge 
and context for the reasoning.

With Stream Reasoning we refer to a research trend that aims at studying 
how to introduce reasoning processes in scenarios involving streams. Up 
to now, we have seen two types of stream reasoning, reasoning over 
streams and reasoning about streams. Reasoning over streams is the 
incremental reasoning over information that is continuously produced and 
made available, typically in the context of a static domain model. 
Reasoning about streams is the reasoning with streams as first class 
entities. Stream Reasoning introduces new challenges with regard to 
traditional reasoning over static or slowly changing data: data is made 
available in a continuous way, possibly from different sources, time is 
a first-class citizen, responsiveness is a key requirement, and deletion 
mechanisms are often required in order to satisfy performance and space 

The goal of this special issue is to collect the most recent and 
advanced research on stream reasoning. Both types of stream reasoning 
described above are relevant for this special issue, as well as novel 
proposals for other types of stream reasoning.

Submission deadline: 19 October 2017. Papers submitted before the 
deadline will be reviewed upon receipt.
