The Journal of Web Semantics invites submissions to a special issue on Semantic Web research and technologies specifically for the Internet of Things / Web of Things. The goal is to demonstrate how this area can benefit from specific research contributions and advances of the Semantic Web.

See below for details.

> The Journal of Web Semantics invites submissions to a special issue on

> of Things / Web of Things. The goal is to demonstrate how this area
> can benefit from specific research contributions and advances of the
> Semantic Web.
> 
> The existing global networking infrastructure has facilitated the
> widespread development of cyber-physical systems, through networks of
> smart objects, pervasively using the internet for connectivity and
> communication. These ``things'' that communicate using Internet
> protocols and make the results of their computation available in
> real-time have given rise to rapidly evolving, new paradigms of
> computing that contribute towards realizing a global, distributed
> infrastructure with a lot of similarities to the Web. Many areas such
> as smart cities, smart buildings, social networks, wearables, and
> large-scale sensor deployments, along with applications in diverse
> domains such as e-health, agriculture, environmental monitoring and
> e-commerce already demonstrate significant uptake and impact.
> 
> However, the exciting and enhanced capabilities of these networks
> present several unprecedented and complex challenges that need to be
> overcome before data, device and service interoperability on IoT/WoT
> networks can deliver all of their predicted potential. Despite being
> connected, there are a plethora of isolated islands of heterogeneous
> networks that require heavy lifting of protocols and data, and
> reconciliation of semantics before they can truly communicate using
> Internet standards. Additionally, interconnected networks produce a
> data deluge to the order and scale of big data which will present
> scalability problems to the network and data analysis and knowledge
> extraction and management. Besides the well-known paradigm of the
> Cloud, new approaches such as (mobile) edge computing and fog
> computing have been proposed to address these problems. The goal is to
> not transport all data but the relevant data across the Internet. This
> requires a fundamental rethinking of current architectural paradigms
> and a decentralization of analysis and knowledge technologies towards
> the edge and inside the whole Internet. The end of this process may be
> the convergence of the so far traditionally separated research areas
> of information processing and communication into a single
> architectural paradigm. It is clear that semantic technologies will
> play a vital and central role in achieving this vision.
> 
> The focus of this special issue is to showcase novel and disrupting
> approaches for the semantic Web to aid in this mission. The ability to
> analyze, represent and integrate data into higher level artefacts from
> very large distributed information sources, the description and
> management of the data and technical infrastructure and the mutual
> influences and interactions among technical infrastructures, knowledge
> creation and use and social aspects are central research questions for
> researchers, organizations, and governments.
> 
> This special issue wants to bring together cutting-edge research with
> particular emphasis on novel and innovative techniques applied to
> real-world scenarios that showcase the distinguishing benefits through
> the application of Semantic Web approaches, ontologies, and Linked
> data principles to the important questions and new challenges raised
> by IoT/WoT.
> 
> Topics of interest with a clear focus on applying or developing novel
> approaches in these areas include but are not limited to:
> 
>    - Big data and real-time data processing for IoT/WoT
>    - Communication protocols for IoT/WoT and their implementation
>    - Modeling and analysis of physical components and environment
>    - Distributed knowledge management (creation and integration of
>      higher-level artefacts in edge / fog computing) 
>    - Industrial applications and use cases: lessons learned and
>      success stories 
>    - Frameworks, models, methods, techniques and toolkits for
>      building the IoT/WoT 
>    - Smart Infrastructure:
>       - Fault tolerance in critical buildings and infrastructures
>       - Energy efficiency in homes, buildings and infrastructures
>       - Traffic and mobility
>       - Intelligent sensors and actuators for homes, buildings and
>         infrastructures 
>       - Smart solutions for health and medicine
