Call for Papers
RDF Stream Processing Workshop


In conjunction with the 12th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2015

May 31th, 2015 in Portoroz, Slovenia

* Motivation
Data streams are an increasingly prevalent source of information in a wide
range of domains and applications, e.g. environmental monitoring, disaster
response, or smart cities. The RDF model is based on a traditional
persisted-data paradigm, where the focus is on maintaining a bounded set of
data items in a knowledge base. This paradigm does not fit the case of data
streams, where data items flow continuously over time, forming unbounded
sequences of data. In this context, the W3C RDF Stream Processing (RSP)
Community Group <http://www.w3c.org/community/rsp> has taken the task to
explore the existing technical and theoretical proposals that incorporate
streams to the RDF model, and to its query language, SPARQL. More
concretely, one of the main goals of the RSP Group is to define a common,
but extensible core model for RDF stream processing. This core model can
serve as a starting point for RSP engines to be able to talk to each other
and interoperate.

* Goal
The goal of this workshop is to bring together interested members of the
community to:

- Demonstrate their latest advances in stream processing systems for RDF.
- Foster discussion for agreeing on a core model and query language for RDF
- Involve and attract people from related research areas to actively
participate in the RSP Community Group.

Each of these objectives will intensify interest and participation in the
community to ultimately broaden its impact and allow for going towards a
standardization process. As a result of this workshop the authors will
contribute to the W3C RSP Community Group Report that will be published as
part of the group activities. The workshop results, including the best
contributions from the submissions, will be published in the ESWC Satellite
Events proceedings.

* Format
The workshop will provide a forum for the growing community to discuss
challenges, current solutions and ideas in RDF stream processing. As such
it will mainly consist of both research and technical slots on topics such
as complex event processing, query language extensions, and efficient
execution approaches for RDF data. There will be a research (lightning
talks) session and a show-and-tell (demo) session where the developers of
RDF stream processing engines can showcase their latest achievements.
Moreover, we also invite application developers to show off their latest
uses, extensions, or enhancements of existing engines. Feedback from
developers, who use current engines, is highly valuable to advance the
state of the art of the community. A face-to-face meeting of the W3C RSP
Community Group focusing on upcoming steps regarding concrete
standardization activities will form the conclusion.

* Submission Instructions
The main aim of the workshop is to foster new ideas and perspectives on RDF
stream processing from related research areas, and facilitate growth and
discussion of the W3C RSP Community Group. For this reason, we encourage
both research and show-and-tell contributions. Submissions might be:

- An Expression of Interest (EoI) of one page. The EoI should contain
author’s expertise, current research interests, relation to the RSP
community, and relevance to the broader ESWC audience.
- A demo or RSP system for the show-and-tell session, including a brief
description and how it fits in the RSP spectrum.
Submissions will be managed through EasyChair using the following URL:

Submissions to the workshop will be published in the W3C RSP site for
permanent archival. The best submissions will be selected for publication
in the ESWC Satellite Events proceedings.

* Important dates
Submission for EoI: Friday March 16, 2015
Notification of acceptance: Friday April 3, 2015
Workshop days: Sunday May 31, 2015
