Ontologies and semantics have emerged as a fundamental research topic in the information systems area to knowledge representation, making explicit the meaning of information, to share information and to achieve interoperability between. Thus, ontologies and semantics are being used in different fields such as Semantic Web, e-Business, information integration, data mining, database design, etc. But its use can be extended beyond information systems and can be applied in networked systems. In these systems ontologies can provide the basis for the automation of information exchanges, dynamic configuration of systems, detecting attacks into the systems, reasoning on behaviour and context that allow dynamic and context-aware applications, etc.

The purpose of this special collection is to collect innovative and high-quality research contributions regarding the role played by ontologies and semantics in networked systems. This special collection aims to explore the synergies between these technologies and give insights on the recent advances in these topics by soliciting original scientific contributions in the form of theoretical and experimental research and case studies.


In this special collection we welcome contributions on the following topics (but are not limited to):

* Design and modeling of ontologies for different kind of networked systems:
- Web services
-(Secure) computer networks and distributed systems
- Context-aware applications
- Architectures of networked services
- Online communities
- Grid services
- E-government/e-business/e-commerce systems
- Recommender systems for networked applications
* Ontologies for networked system interoperability
* Ontology for semantic Web services composition
* Applications, evaluations, and experiences with ontologies and semantics in the following kind of networked systems:
- E-business systems
- E-governement systems
- Collaborative systems
- Multimedia communications
- Secure and private communications
- Context-aware systems
* Ontological and semantic evaluation of networked systems
* Editing tools for ontologies for networked systems
* Usability and user interaction with semantic technologies in networked applications


Deadline for submission of papers: 31 October 2012
Authors to receive a 1st decision by: 30 January 2013
Final notification of acceptance: 31 March 2013
On-line and print publication: (subject to JRPIT Schedule)


Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contribution to the field of ontologies and semantics in networked systems, as well as their suitability to the special collection, and for their overall quality. Contributions are accepted for review on the understanding that the same work has not been published and that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Substantially revised (minimum 30% of new content) versions of papers published in conference proceedings can also be submitted. In this case, the original paper should also be enclosed.
The Journal of Research and Practice in Information Technology is an international quality, peer reviewed journal covering innovative research and practice in Information Technology. For additional information regarding the journal and manuscript preparation, please visit
All submissions should be sent directly to the Guest Editors.
