[CfP] Web Stream Processing Workshop @WWW (The Web Conference 2018)

Web Stream Processing Workshop 2018 (WSP2018)
Co-located with The Web Conference 2018 (formerly WWW2018),
April 23/24, 2018 Lyon, France

Applications in different domains require reactive processing of massive, dynamically generated streams of data.

This trend is increasingly visible also on the Web, where more and more streaming sources are becoming available.

These originate from social networks, sensor networks, the Internet of Things (IoT) and many other technologies that

use the Web as a platform for sharing data.

This has resulted in new Web-centric efforts such as the Web of Things (WoT), which focuses on  exposing and

describing the IoT resources on  the Web; or the Social Web which provides protocols, vocabularies,

and APIs to facilitate access to social communications and interactions on the Web.

Several challenges arise in this context, including the opportunity of performing data analytics over Web streams.

This requires the necessity of integrating heterogeneous Web data, which should be distributed and accessible in

 a decentralized manner. Some of these challenges have been addressed through emerging efforts like

Stream Reasoning and RDF Stream Processing.

While these are relevant examples of research in this domain, there is a growing need to develop flexible and

scalable analytical processing for streaming data on the Web, in order to allow decentralized processing, publication

and discovery of streaming data, as well as integration mechanisms at Web scale. To achieve this, the expertise from

other communities, including stream mining, machine learning and distributed processing can be highly valuable.

This workshop aims at putting together relevant communities in order to discuss and explore holistic processing models

for streaming data on the Web. This will include discussions on the issues related to publishing data streams on the

Web as well as analysing them with queries and inference processes. The event will contribute to the creation of an active

community interested in integrating stream processing, data analytics and and dynamic data reasoning by using methods

inspired by data and knowledge management.

Topics of Interest
Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Publishing and using data streams on the Web

* Data compression algorithms for data stream exchange over the Web

* Web stream mining

* Processing and analysis of social Web streams

* WoT enabled applications

* Environmental data streams on the Web

* Real world data/event discovery from data streams

* Continuous query answering over data streams in the Web

* Complex Event Processing for Web data streams

* Ontological query answering over data streams in the Web

* Role of parallelization and distribution in Web stream processing

* Modelling and knowledge representation for data streams

* Topologies for distributed processing of Web data streams

* Approximation approaches to processing Web data streams

* Handling incomplete and noisy Web data streams

* Time-series data analysis and change/pattern detection for the Web

* Machine learning over streams of data

* Implementation and evaluation experiences

* Noise and anomaly management in the Web streams

* Applications and proof of concepts

* Reference datasets and proposals for benchmarks

We will welcome submissions describing ideas, experiments, and application visions related to data streams on the Web.

Submissions should be formatted according to the new ACM format guidelines available at <http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0>


selecting the generic “sigconf” sample. *Long papers* should not exceed eight pages

(including bibliography, diagrams, images and appendices).

We encourage the submission *short papers* - two to five pages - to present intermediate results and ongoing work to

be discussed with the community during the workshop.

Paper should be submitted in PDF format, but other formats are welcome upon agreement (please contact the chairs in case).

All submissions will be done electronically via the EasyChair Web submission system at:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=www2018satellites (Web Stream Processing workshop track).

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. Information about registration are available on the WWW2018 web page:


The workshop proceedings will be published in the WWW2018 companion proceedings.
