Making Sense of Stream Data

Call for Papers

The Journal of Web Semantics ( invites submissions for a special issue on Making Sense of Stream Data, to be edited by Albert Bifet, Emanuele Della Valle, Danh Le Phuoc, and Konstantin Schekotihin.

Our growing ability to collect, integrate, store, and analyze massive data fuels scientific breakthroughs and technological innovations. However, in a world where volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity are the new normal, making sense of historical data is no longer enough. First, in the 2020s’ the demand for storage will exceed the production capability by an order of magnitude. This exponential inflation will thus require analyzing almost 30% of global data in real-time. Second, when changes hit, those who employ historical data analytics discover that their models are no longer relevant. COVID-19 is one of those changes.

In this special issue, we call researchers from the various areas such as Knowledge Representation, Semantic Web, Complex Event Processing, Streaming Machine Learning, or
Stream Processing for theoretical contributions, novel algorithms, artifacts, and tools to realize successful systems. Moreover, we invite practitioners from any application domain that deals with data streams to report their experiences, best practices, and insights.

Submission Guidelines

For this special issue, we are seeking two types of papers:

- _Research papers_ describing novel and significant scientific contributions. Those papers are typically 15-20 pages long.
- _System papers_ that focus on the description of stream reasoning systems where the authors fully detail the design, construction, implementation, and usage as well as demonstrate its usefulness. Those papers are expected to be 6-8 pages long.

The _Journal of Web Semantics_ solicits original scientific contributions of high quality. Following the overall mission of the journal, we emphasize the publication of papers that combine theories, methods, and experiments from different subject areas in order to deliver innovative semantic methods and applications. The publication of large-scale experiments and their analysis is also encouraged to clearly illustrate scenarios and methods that introduce semantics into existing Web interfaces, contents, and services.

Submission of your manuscript is welcome provided that it, or any translation of it, has not been copyrighted or published and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere.

Manuscripts should be prepared for publication in accordance with instructions given in the JWS guide for authors ( and use the two-column variant of the style. The submission and review process will be carried out using Elsevier's Web-based ( Please state the name of the SI in your cover letter and, at the time of submission, please select “**VSI:SR**” when reaching the Article Type selection.

Upon acceptance of an article, the author(s) will be asked to transfer the copyright of the article to the publisher. This transfer will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information. Elsevier's liberal preprint policy ( permits authors and their institutions to host preprints on their websites. Preprints of the articles will be made freely accessible via JWS First Look ( Final copies of accepted publications will appear in print and at Elsevier's archival online server.
