[CFP] 2nd Workshop on Semantic Web of Things for Industry 4.0 (SWeTI 2019)

The Second International Workshop on Semantic Web of Things for Industry 4.0 (SWeTI 2019)

In conjunction with the 16th ESWC Conference 2019

June 2nd-6th, 2019, Portoroz, Slovenia
Submission: March 01, 2019

** Aims of the Workshop **

Industry 4.0 refers to the 4th Industrial revolution – the recent trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. To fully realize the Industry 4.0 vision, manufacturers need to unlock several capabilities: vertical integration through connected and smart manufacturing assets of a factory; horizontal integration through connecting discrete operational systems of a factory; end-to-end integration through the entire supply chain.

In recent technology advancements in Web of Things (WoT) and Semantic Web (Jointly referred as Semantic Web of Things) have a promising role to play to address the Industry 4.0 vision. Integration of Semantic Web with WoT technologies enables communications among heterogeneous industrial assets. Semantic Web can be also used to represent manufacturing knowledge in a machine-interpretable way. The semantic modeling of industrial assets and their service produces unambiguous and machine-interpretable descriptions and creates interoperability among assets and their services across domains. Semantic Web is indeed a good fit for a plethora of complex problems related to automated, flexible, and self-configurable systems like Industry 4.0 systems.

Several of such novel systems based on Semantic Web of Things are already being proposed. However, these efforts have not yet been consolidated in order to capitalize on experiences in the major issues such as: computational underpinning, multidisciplinary technologies involved, and application domain demands. Therefore, the time is ripe to bring together the different disciplines related to the use of Semantic Web of Things for Industry 4.0 and form an international community to identify the major challenges and research directions. The workshop is intended to build a community and to provide a forum that enables:

- Sharing techniques and experiences
- Developing a better theoretical basis of the foundational principles for building Industry 4.0 systems using Semantic Web
- Identifying potential domains, application areas and use case patterns
- Identifying future research directions

** Topics of Interest **

SWeTI 2019 invites submission covering the following topics (but not limit itself to):

- Industry 4.0 implementation and real-world case studies
- Analysis of typical  Industry 4.0 needs and how these can be addressed with capabilities offered by the Semantic Web technology stack
- Challenges, vision, and concepts for Industry 4.0 and Semantic Web
- Semantic frameworks & architectures for interoperability among Industry 4.0 platforms
- Semantics driven data integration approaches (e.g., OBDI) and their application in Industry 4.0 settings
- Semantic data models for sensor data representation and integration for Smart factory domains
- Semantic architectures and middleware for building Industry 4.0 applications
- Semantic techniques using edge & fog computing for Manufacturing scenarios
- Linked Data-based Intelligent Applications for Manufacturing Industries
- Case studies and experience reports on existing open standards (RAMI, OPC-UA) for Industry 4.0 use cases
- Semantic frameworks for developing Industry 4.0 applications
- Real-time IoT data analytics, data aggregation, data abstraction and event detection
- Use of Semantic Web in Emerging Industry 4.0 scenarios such as supply chain, predictive maintenance, asset tracking, logistics
- The role of semantics in supporting cyber-physical social systems in the Manufacturing domain

** Important Dates **

Paper submissions: Friday March 1, 2019
Notifications to authors: Friday March 29, 2019
Camera-ready copies: Friday April 12, 2019
Workshop: June 2nd or 3rd, 2019

** Categories of Papers **

SWeTI 2019 welcomes papers in the following categories:
- Research papers, presenting original research within industrial case studies, including an evaluation of the approach or case studies. Research papers are limited to 15 pages.
- Position papers, describing ongoing research and future emerging trends in Industry 4.0 and Semantic Web areas. Position papers are limited to 6 pages.
- Case studies and experience reports, reporting real-world case studies of Industry 4.0 and use of Semantic Web. Case studies and experience reports are limited to 6 pages.
- Demo papers from academic and industrial environments, ranging from early prototype to commercialized products, demonstrating advances to the state of the practices. Papers in this category are limited to 4 pages.

** Submission **

Paper review process will be single-blind (no need to anonymize the papers).  Every submission will be reviewed by at least two independent referees. The emphasis will be on usefulness and originality. If accepted, the paper must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors. All submissions should be formatted according to the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Accepted papers will be published in online workshop proceedings (e.g., CEUR). Organizers will arrange an invited submission for one selected best paper from workshop proceedings to a special edition of a relevant journal.
