[CfP] International Workshop on Semantic Web of Constrained Things (SWoCoT) @ ESWC 2023

*** Apologies for cross-posting ***

In recent years, the combination of Internet of Things (IoT), Semantics and
Web of Things (SWoT) has been more and more popular to collect sensing data
according to the semantic web stack and build smart services and
applications. One momentum is the release of a W3C recommendation for WoT
architecture along with a formal specification of Thing Descriptions. The
Web of Things (WoT) allows to describe device semantics, bridging the gap
between the different domain and service descriptions. Developers can use
WoT standards and tools to collect sensing data and control devices for the
applications in agriculture, energy, enterprise, finance, healthcare,
industry, etc.
At the same time, decentralized infrastructures able to capture and
transform data at the edge have gained attraction over centralized ones,
due to both the constant attempts to reduce industrial costs and the real
necessity to reduce the global carbon emission. Decentralized
infrastructures hence represent a step towards the so-called Green Web,
especially as they are usually built on small and low-energy consuming
devices. However, fulfilling the SWoT promises using such infrastructures
poses new challenges as these small devices are constrained in terms of
computing capabilities and memory. Moreover for autonomous devices,
wireless network communications are also energy-consuming and can hinder
their battery life. Deploying SWoT standards on such devices require to
control and monitor the consumption of these resources, whereas semantic
technologies are known to be verbose and computation intensive.

This first international workshop aims at bridging together research and
industry communities working on the different aspects of embedding data
semantics and standards-based solutions into edge and/or constrained
Internet and Web of Things setups, as well as reducing the carbon footprint
of semantic technologies.
The workshop will include a keynote presentation, different types of
submissions (research, in-use, experience, position, tools, and demos), and
break-out discussions.

Workshop Objectives
The purpose of the workshop is to provide a venue for scientific
presentations, systematic analysis, and rigorous evaluation of semantic WoT
architectures, ontologies, and tools, as well as practical and applied
experiences and lessons learned applied to constrained devices both from
academia and industry. The workshop can lead to a contribution to the W3C
community group on WoT.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
- Ontologies and models adjustments for solving data and service
heterogeneity in constrained networks
- Ontology/vocabulary efficient integration and communication among
embedded systems
- Extensions of current State-of-the-Art ontologies (M2M, SSN/SOSA, SAREF,
etc) for sensing, converting raw data for embedded systems
- Knowledge Graph applications, and use cases
- Libraries for creating knowledge graphs at the edge
- Distributed querying and reasoning in edge computing
- Smart brokers to exchange messages between edge and gateways
- Binary RDF formats to efficiently exchange datasets among smart devices
- Low coding approaches applied to constrained devices
- Architectural considerations for constrained devices
- Experimentations / Efficient evaluation of using semantic technologies in
constrained devices (memory storage, processing, carbon footprint, network,
- Automatization of knowledge graph construction methods for embedded
- Lessons learned/ Best practices for implementing SWoT applications for
embedded systems
- IoT application use cases in various domains: healthcare, smart
agriculture, smart, transportation, robotics, industry 4.0, etc.

Submission guidelines
The submissions must be written in English using the Springer style
(LNCS/CCIS one-column page format) and submitted non-anonymously in PDF via
EasyChair. We invite the submission of original research results and
proposed research directions related to the focus areas of the workshop, in
one of the three categories given below:

- Full papers (up to 15 pages)
- Short papers (6-8 pages)
- Demos (up to 4 pages)
Please note that HTML+RDFa contributions are also welcome as long as the
layout complies with the LNCS style.

All proposed papers must be submitted using the easychair conference
management system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=swocot2023.
All submitted papers will be subject to peer-review process. At least one
co-author of each accepted paper is required to register to ESWC and
present the paper.
