1st International Workshop on Sensors and Actuators on the Web (SAW 2019)

Auckland, New Zealand, 26 or 27 October 2019

WWW: http://saw.gitlab.emse.fr/2019/
E-mail: iswc-saw2019@easychair.org

Please consider contributing to SAW 2019 - held as a part of the 18th
International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2019).

Major industries including manufacturing, transport and logistics, personal
and public health, smart cities and smart energy, crisis management and
many others spanning commercial, civic, and scientific operations that
involve sensors and actuators exposed on the web. In potential combination
with other AI techniques, the Semantic Web offers representational,
analytical, and reasoning capabilities that are important for the
development of advanced applications that rely on sensors and actuators,
potentially geographically distributed and/or exposed on the Web of Things.
SAW 2019 targets Semantic Web practitioners that represent, reason with,
publish, or use knowledge related to sensors and actuators in general. This
workshop gives a breath of fresh air to the Semantic Sensor Network
Workshop series that started within ISWC in 2006, was complemented by
special tracks at ESWC since 2010, and was resumed by a successful 9th
edition at ISWC 2018 which benefited from renewed energy arising from the
October 2017 W3C recommendation and OGC standard, and more importantly,
increases significance due to the growth in IoT enabled applications. SAW
2019 is organized by the contributors to SOSA/SSN and particularly welcomes
early adopters of this ontology, whose work may not be mature enough to get
published at the main conference, or consist in migrating previous work.

The SAW workshop will be a full day event meant to be highly interactive,
so as to facilitate discussions among participants that could result in
future collaborative work. A keynote/invited talk will be planned, and
followed by authors presenting their paper. We will ensure sufficient time
will be dedicated to questions and answers for each paper. The session will
end with a general discussion session to discuss experience with the
ontologies and decide on the next steps. It is expected that most of the
standard's editors will be present.


Topics include, but are not limited to:

 - Knowledge representation and reasoning for sensors and actuators
 - Semantic Sensor Networks and the Web of Things, semantic discovery of
sensors and actuators
 - Status monitoring, configuration, and reconfiguration of sensors and
 - Trust, privacy, and security in Semantic Sensor Networks
 - Migration of ontologies and datasets to the OGC and W3C SOSA/SSN ontology
 - Processing and storage of semantic sensor and actuator data on the
 - Semantic Web and Linked Data for sensor and actuator data
 - Interoperability and alignment among standards, ontologies, catalogues,
related to sensors and actuators
 - Geospatial semantics and data related to sensors and actuators on the Web
 - Experience in sensor network applications of semantic technologies
 - Sensor data streams
 - Intelligent Environments using sensor and actuator systems
 - Novel applications of semantic sensor networks,
physical/IoT-cyber-social data
 - Citizen sensors, participatory sensing and social sensing
 - Coupling between semantics and other AI techniques for Semantic Sensor
Networks (deep learning, multi-agent systems, etc.)


Papers should be submitted by June 28, 2019. We invite research papers and
demonstration papers, either in long (16 pages) or short (8 pages) format.
Submissions must be in PDF, formatted in the style of the Springer
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

All proposed papers must be submitted in electronic form (PDF format) using
the SAW 2019 conference management system at
