Workshop Topics


NOTE: See proposed date below or contact Workshop chairs for more details


In this emergent Connected World/Web of Things dynamic environment, where technology evolves rapidly and thus data sources change formats at all the time, there is a strong requirement to integrate multiple information sets. This describes the necessity to be interoperable at the data/event level so that it becomes easier to combine/aggregate data/event coming from heterogeneous data sources. This raises also the challenge of being able to look up/discover data source and relevant data.

Semantic Web has been identified as one of the most popular methods and technologies that in combination with communication services enlighten the convergence and interoperability. However, there are yet gaps to ensure semantic interoperability in a Connected World also to ensure cross-domain interworking: Healthcare, Wellbeing, Smart Ageing, Smart Cities, Agriculture, and Industrial Internet.

Relevant related topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to:


  • Semantic/non-semantic methods, models, and formats for interoperability,
  • Linked Data approaches for World/Web of Connected Things data integration,
  • Information frameworks/systems and models for data exchange,
  • Knowledge representation and connected World/Web domain models.
  • Architectural building blocks and their ability to be integrated into multi-tiered systems
  • Cross-domain semantics and cross-domain Interoperability models
  • Design and development of Connected World/Web of Things systems;
  • Data analytics for Connected World/Web of Things applications;
  • Streaming data integration and complex events processing;
  • Sensor data management, actuation and smart behaviour;
  • Security/privacy/trust in a Connected World/Web of Things;
  • Supporting web of things implementations with semantic web technologies;
  • Marketplaces for semantic/non-semantic interoperable systems, applications and services;
  • Use-cases and implemented applications demonstrators and proof of concepts;
  • Alignment between different description models for Services/Resources/Entities;
  • Standardization, Communities and Initiatives;


The above list is not exhaustive, and we would like to encourage participants to be creative.
