OrdRing 2011 : First International Workshop on Ordering and Reasoning
Call For Papers
Goal of the workshop
The goal of the OrdRing 2011 workshop is to bring together the growing and very active community of Semantic Web researchers and practitioners interested in novel ideas, experiments, and application visions originating from requirements for and efforts aimed at combining ordering and reasoning.
Context and motivation
As the number and size of data sources increases, the need arises for efficient data computations and analysis techniques. In several settings, streaming algorithms become the only class of algorithm practically able to handle the huge amount of available information.
Semantic Web researchers and practitioners have now been using streaming algorithms for more than a decade, and with increasing success. Many SPARQL engines internally use streams for evaluating issued queries. The Description Logic community has also been investigating top-k ontological query answering, and the idea of Stream Reasoning is gaining considerable momentum.
Topics of interest
Topics of interest are related to :
Relation between streaming algorithms and reasoning techniques
Notion of soundness and completeness for reasoning approaches that use streaming algorithms
Knowledge representation techniques for ordered facts
Modeling search services (i.e., services that provides ranked outputs)
Reasoning techniques that exploit ordering/ranking
Top-k ontological query answering
Efficient SPARQL query evaluation using streaming algorithms
Reasoning on Data Stream
Integrating data streams with RDF and relational stores
Applications of stream reasoning and query answering
Implementation and evaluation experiences
Papers submitted to OrdRing 2011 should explore open research problems, and must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three PC members. Paper acceptance will be based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation.
The workshop will accept:
Full research and experience papers (maximum length: 12 pages)
Short Papers (maximum length: 6 pages)
Position and demonstration Papers (maximum length: 4 pages)
Paper submissions will have to be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and are to be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ordring2011).
Abstract submission deadline: August 12, 2011
Paper submission deadline: August 19, 2011
Notification of acceptance: September 16, 2011
Camera ready papers: September 26, 2011
Workshop date: October 23 or 24, 2011
