Call for Papers ESWC 2019 Velocity on the Web Track: On semantics of/in/for IoT and Social streams/events on the Web


The Velocity on the Web (VoW) research track is looking for impactful research contributions addressing theoretical, analytical and empirical aspects of the rapidly evolving information flows on the web.

We encourage contributions to research at the intersection of Semantic Web and Stream Processing, Internet of Things and Data Integration, as well as, other scientific areas that would benefit from data sharing in a vast, unbounded, and noisy web environment.

Submissions to the VoW research track should describe original work. For those contributions based on implemented systems, we encourage principled means of repeatable evaluation.


Currently, we produce information faster than how much we can consume. While Social Media and News Streams flood the web with highly informative contents, users struggle in the attempt of satisfying their information needs. Knowledge Graphs are valuable sources to navigate the web space. However, they also require to manage frequent changes and highly dynamic data.

In this scenario, there is a clear need of new theoretical, analytical and empirical Semantic Web solutions for taming variety and velocity simultaneously in a fast evolving and heterogeneous web environment.
