[CfP] Deadline extension: International Workshop on Semantics For Transport (Sem4Tra)

International Workshop on Semantics For Transport

(#Sem4Tra2019) in conjunction with SEMANTiCS2019 [https://2019.semantics.cc/


*Workshop website:* https://sem4tra.linkeddata.es/

*Workshop date and location: *09 September 2019 – Karlsruhe (Germany)

*Extended Submission deadline:* 18 July 2019


Sem4Tra is a half-day workshop on Semantics For Transport. It is co-located
with the SEMANTiCS conference 2019.

*Brief Abstract*


Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) consists in the integration of various forms
of transport services into a single mobility service. The goal is to
provide a traveler with the service needed for a door-to-door travel under
a single payment whilst integrating disparate modes of mobility under one
travel experience.

After years of conceptualization, MaaS is becoming a present reality rather
than a future goal. However, the development of multimodal travel services
and the interoperability between business applications is currently limited
due to the fragmentation and incompatibility of interchange formats and
protocols both within and across transport sectors.

The technology known as RDF, Linked Data and the Semantic Web, proposes a
framework to discuss the semantics of terms in a decentralized fashion on
web-scale. As MaaS is decentralized by definition, this workshop targets
researchers and practitioners that are contributing to transform the
transportation sector by proposing new semantic-based solutions to achieve
the MaaS objectives.

*Topics of interest*


   - Modeling and knowledge representation in the Transport domain
   - Vocabularies and ontologies for the Transport domain
      - Semantic-based conversion of transportation data formats (e.g.,
      GTFS, NeTEx/Transmodel)
      - Web APIs sharing Linked Open Transport data on web-scale
      - Transport payment solutions with Web standards
      - Semantic interoperability solutions for MaaS
      - Applications exploiting semantics in transport
      - User-based contributions to transport data, possibly enhanced by
      - Semantic integration of transport data with other open city data

*Submission guidelines*


Share your contribution before the deadline through the EasyChair
<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sem4tra> platform. The accepted
contributions will be published in the proceedings of the workshop. Each
accepted paper needs to be presented by one of the authors at the workshop.



   - Full research papers (8-12 pages)
   - Short research paper (4-6 pages)
   - Position papers (4-6 pages)
   - System/demo papers (4-6 pages)



Authors can choose the best way to express their work, such as HTML or PDF.
However, a LNCS-like layout should be provided.
