Sem4Tra is a full-day workshop on Semantics and the Web For Transport. It is co-located with the ICWE conference 2020.

Brief Abstract
Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) integrates different transport services into a single mobility service. The goal is to provide a traveler with the service needed for a door-to-door travel under a single payment whilst integrating disparate modes of mobility (public transport, car- or bike-sharing, taxi/car rental, or a combination thereof) under one travel experience.

After years of conceptualization, MaaS is becoming a present reality rather than a future goal. However, many challenges remain unanswered. The development of multimodal travel information, planning and booking services, and the interoperability between business applications are currently limited due to the fragmentation and incompatibility of interchange formats and protocols both within and across transport sectors.

The foundation of Semantic Web and the technologies such as RDF and Linked Data, foster utilization and application of the semantics of terms in a decentralized fashion on web-scale. Given the decentralized nature of MaaS, this workshop targets researchers and practitioners who are contributing to the transformation of the transportation sector by proposing new semantic and
Web API based solutions to achieve the MaaS objectives. The workshop is an opportunity for disseminating and discussing use cases and studies showing the application of semantic and Web technologies in the transport domain to tackle the above-mentioned challenges.

Topics of interest
• Modeling and knowledge representation in the Transport domain
• Vocabularies and ontologies for the Transport domain
• Semantic-based conversion of transportation data formats (e.g., GTFS, NeTEx/Transmodel)
• Web APIs sharing Linked Open Transport data on web-scale
• Transport payment solutions with Web standards
• Semantic interoperability solutions for MaaS
• Web applications exploiting semantics in transport
• User-based contributions to transport data, possibly enhanced by semantics
• Semantic integration of transport data with other open city data

Submission guidelines
Share your contribution before the deadline through the EasyChair platform. The accepted contributions will be published in the proceedings of the workshop. Each accepted paper needs to be presented by one of the authors at the workshop.

• Full research papers (8-12 pages)
• Short research paper (4-6 pages)
• Position papers (4-6 pages)
• System/demo papers (4-6 pages)
• 5 minutes lightning talk for EU projects or ideas (1 page)

Authors can choose the best way to express their work, such as HTML or PDF. However, a LNCS-like layout should be provided.
