CFP Int. Workshop on Semantic Digital Twins at ESWC 2020

International Workshop on Semantic Digital Twins (SeDiT 2020)

Co-located with the 16th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2020)
Heraklion, Crete, Greece - 31 May 2020

SEDiT2020 welcomes the submission of original research and application 
papers dealing with all aspects of applying semantic technologies to the 
use of digital twins. We encourage theoretical, methodological, 
empirical, and applications papers. Submitted papers should describe 
original work.
We strongly encourage and appreciate the submission of papers 
incorporating links to demos and/or software source code.

The concept of digital twin, as a virtual replica of a physical entity, 
has gained traction recently in a range of domains such as industry, 
construction, energy, health or transport. Digital Twins can be used to 
view the status of the twinned physical object, without the need to 
interrogate the object itself. The digital twin can be queried by other 
software without the need to query the device itself thus relieving 
pressure on devices, which typically have very limited computational 
capabilities. Digital twins can also be used for monitoring and 
diagnostics to optimize device performance without impacting on the 
physical device.

Digital twins require unambiguous descriptions of both the entity and 
its digital counterpart, as well as the ability to integrate data from 
heterogeneous sources of information (including real-time data) and to 
interact with the physical world. Given these requirements, semantic 
technologies will play a significant role in bringing digital twins to 

The aims of the SeDIT workshop are twofold. Firstly, to initiate 
discussion about current trends and future challenges of semantic 
digital twins. Secondly, to support communication and collaboration with 
the goal of aligning the various efforts within the community and 
accelerating innovation in all the associated fields.


Topics include, but are not limited to:

.- Semantics and digital twins
.- Semantic descriptions of digital twins and their context
.- Interaction with semantic digital twins
.- Synchronization between an entity and its semantic digital twin
.- Simulation and models of semantic digital twins
.- Validation of semantic digital twins
.- Analytics and visualization for semantic digital twins
.- Scalability of semantic digital twins
.- Self-awareness of semantic digital twins
.- Semantic digital twin ecosystems
.- Security and trust for semantic digital twins
.- Privacy and ethics for semantic digital twins
.- Semantic digital twins in industry
.- Semantic digital twins in construction
.- Semantic digital twins in health
.- Semantic digital twins in transport
.- Semantic digital twins in the energy sector
.- Semantic digital twins in smart cities
.- Semantic digital twins for people
