As the number and size of data sources increases, the need arises for 
efficient data computations and analysis techniques. In several 
settings, streaming algorithms become the only class of algorithm 
practically able to handle the huge amount of available information.

Semantic Web researchers and practitioners have now been using streaming 
algorithms for more than a decade, and with increasing success. Many 
SPARQL engines internally use streams for evaluating issued queries. The 
Description Logic community has also been investigating top-k 
ontological query answering, and the idea of Stream Reasoning is gaining 
considerable momentum.

The *goal* of the *OrdRing 2011* workshop is to bring together the 
growing and very active community of Semantic Web researchers and 
practitioners interested in novel ideas, experiments, and application 
visions originating from requirements for and efforts aimed at combining 
ordering and reasoning.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Relation between streaming algorithms and reasoning techniques
* Notion of soundness and completeness for reasoning approaches that use 
streaming algorithms
* Knowledge representation techniques for ordered facts
* Modeling search services (i.e., services that provides ranked outputs)
* Reasoning techniques that exploit ordering/ranking
* Top-k ontological query answering
* Efficient SPARQL query evaluation using streaming algorithms
* Reasoning on Data Stream
* Integrating data streams with RDF and relational stores
* Applications of stream reasoning and query answering
* Implementation and evaluation experiences


Papers submitted to *OrdRing 2011* should explore open research 
problems, and must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or 
be under review for another workshop or conference. All papers will be 
peer-reviewed by at least three PC members.

The workshop will accept:
* Full research and experience papers (maximum length: 12 pages)
* Short Papers (maximum length: 6 pages)
* Position and demonstration Papers (maximum length: 4 pages)

Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer 
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and are 
to be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair. All 
submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the international 
program committee. Paper acceptance will be based on originality, 
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation.

Workshop papers will be published as CEUR-WS Proceedings. *The best 
papers will have the opportunity to be published in the LNCS Search 
Computing book series by Springer*. At least one author of an accepted 
paper must register and participate in the workshop. Registration is 
subject to the terms, conditions and procedure of the main ISWC 
conference to be found on their website.
