The focus of BDSDST 2015 will be on potential of Big Data, Smart Data and semantic technologies in different application areas.

Growing technical possibilities to gather and aggregate multi-modal data from sensors, mobile devices, social media, log files, cameras, microphones etc. provide useful information about the state and the environment of the data sources, but also result in large and complex data sets, which today are known as Big Data. When processed properly by right predictive and prescriptive analytic approaches, Big Data might carry huge amounts of useful information, which was not accessible before and allow for better-founded, more robust predictions and better decision-making. Combined with semantic technologies, which enable machines and people likewise to understand and share data and facilitate the interrelation and integration of data, content and processes in meaningful ways, the maximum potential of the gathered data can be exploited.

Using Big/Smart Data as well as methods and tools based on semantic technologies can provide more transparency, enable precise and well-founded decisions and improve planning processes, particularly with regard to environmental and energy aspects, which will result in more sustainable and efficient processes and systems, especially in areas such as logistics, mobility and the Smart Grid.

The BDSDST 2015 workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners who use Big and Smart Data, preferably in combination with semantic technologies and shall support technology transfer from foundational research into practice. We also welcome sole contributions from Big Data, Smart Data or semantic Web research as those might stimulate the development of proper solutions for nowadays challenges.


The workshop covers diverse application areas of Big Data, Smart Data and semantic technologies including, but not limited to:

* Transport logistics
* Green logistics
* Production planning control and scheduling
* Process planning and monitoring
* Maintenance logistics
* Service parts demand analytics
* Supply Chain Management
* Green Supply Chains
* Smart Factory
* Integration and visualization of sensor and mobility data
* Data-driven supply chain and traffic optimization
* Risk and congestion management
* Disruption management
* Mobility service analytics
* Traffic flow modelling and analytics
* Emission modelling, analytics, simulation and visualization
* Public transportation
* Prescriptive analytics
* Complex Event Processing
* Ambient Intelligence
* Cognitive Systems
* Information Integration
* Machine Learning
* Mobile Information Systems
* Context-aware Computing
* Text Mining
* Service-oriented Computing
* Grid and Cloud Computing
* Technology-enhanced learning
* Automation
* Energy consumption modelling, monitoring and analytics
* smartEnergy
* eEnergy
* Smart Grid
* eGovernment
* eMobility
* eHealth

In addition to general usage of Big Data and semantic technologies, a special focus will be given to using Big Data, Smart Data and semantic technologies to improve the sustainability and energy efficiency of processes and systems. We explicitly encourage contributions tackling this challenge.


We invite researchers and practitioners from various fields in research and industry to submit original research, work in progress and industrial papers.

Full papers must not exceed 12 pages. Short papers, work in progress and industrial papers must not exceed 8 pages.

Submissions must be in PDF format and follow the LNI style guidelines (

Contributions shall be submitted via Conftool online submission system at

Submissions will be reviewed by at least two program committee members. Accepted papers will appear in the (electronic) Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI,
