Semantic Web Journal: Call for Papers on Big Data: Theory and Practice


Semantic Web Journal Call for Papers on Big Data: Theory and Practice

The Semantic Web journal calls for innovative and high-quality papers 
describing theory and practice of storing, accessing, searching, mining, 
processing, and visualizing big data. We especially invite papers that 
describe or demonstrate how ontologies, Linked Data, and Semantic Web 
technologies can handle the problems arising when integrating massive 
amounts of multi-thematic and multi-perspective information from 
heterogeneous sources to answer complex questions that cut through 
domain boundaries.

We welcome all paper categories, i.e., full research papers, application 
reports, systems and tools, ontology papers, as well as surveys, as long 
as they clearly relate to challenges and opportunities arising from 
processing big data - see our listing of paper types in the author 
guidelines. In other words, we expect all submitted manuscripts to 
address how the presented work can exploit massive and/or heterogeneous 

Topics include but are not limited to

     Sensor Semantics and Smart Dust
     Semantics-based Aggregation and Generalization of (Observation) Data
     Massive Data Integration for the Digital Earth
     Semantic Interoperability and Heterogeneity
     Linked Science
     Knowledge Discovery from Linked Data
     Mining the Social and Mobile Web
     Inductive and Abductive Approaches to Ontology Learning
     Ontology Modularization
     Ontology Evolution
     Knowledge Patterns
     On-the-fly Ontology Alignment and Matching
     Semantic Translation
     Distributed Reasoning
     Handling Uncertainty, Vagueness, and Inconsistencies
     Ontology-driven Data Visualization
     Semantics-enabled User Interfaces to Handle Massive Data
     Trust and Privacy Issues in Publishing and Reasoning about Big Data
     The User as Knowledge Engineer
     Semantics-based Negotiation between Domain Experts
     Dialog and Question Answering Systems based on Linked Data and 
     Connecting the Semantic Web with Spatial Data Infrastructures and 
the Model Web
     Internet of Things
     Applications of Linked Data

Important Dates
Manuscript submission due: 13. February 2012
First notification: 26. March 2012
Issue publication: Summer 2012

The special issue on Big Data Theory and Practice calls for original 
high-quality research on any of the above mentioned topics. Authors are 
requested to follow the author guidelines, submit online as detailed in 
the author guidelines, and include the name of the call within the 
submission letter. All manuscripts will be reviewed based on the SWJ 
open and transparent review policy and will be made available during 
online the review process.
