New trends in Semantic Web-based applications

Description and Scope:

Semantic Web technologies are becoming more relevant to the research community.
Such interest has inspired many people to create innovative technologies and applications such as Semantic Searches, Information Integration, Information Interoperability, Bioinformatics, eHealth, eLearning, Software Engineering, eCommerce, eGovernment, Social Networks. In this sense, the application of semantic web has carried out an extensive use of ontologies in such diverse fields. The application of ontologies has supposed an incredible advance in developing techniques to manipulate, share, reuse and integrate information across heterogeneous data sources. In particular, in Big Data to preserve such homogeneous format has become one of the principal problems that these tremendous datasets are facing. To face this difficulty, research areas like Natural Language Processing, Ontology Matching, Ontology Alignment or Ontology population are providing efficient methodologies based on RDF and OWL language technologies to provide standard ways to convert such datasets into Linked Data uniform format. Nowadays, the usage of Linked Data format has been established as a de facto standard; everyone wants to publish their data in such format, Social Networks, Smart cities and Context-aware mobile applications. Thus, according to this demand, the development of certain techniques to enable users to publish, visualize and manipulate their data in an easy way is high-demanded. Also, the standardization of this linked format has completely revolutionized the way of representing and analyzing data demanding new graph-based machine learning and data mining techniques to explore such representation.

On the other hand, with the arrival of ontologies, fundamental questions have emerged about which kind of elements should be defined in an ontology model to specify knowledge and how this knowledge should be represented. In response to these questions, Ontological Engineering, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning research areas are working intensively to develop generic models which enable systems to employ reasoning techniques to produce knowledge.
Therefore, the main objective of this special issue is to collect and consolidate innovative and high-quality research contributions regarding to semantic Web-based applications applied to different disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence, Database Management, Knowledge Representation and Engineering, Natural Language and Processing, Cloud Computing, Social Web, Web Science, among others. This special issue aims to provide insights on the recent advances in these topics by soliciting original scientific contributions in the form of theoretical foundations, models, experimental research and case studies for developing semantic Web-based applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

• Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
• Knowledge Acquisition
• Ontological Engineering
• Ontology Sharing and Reuse
• Ontology Matching and Alignment
• Ontology Learning and Population
• Semantic Web Semantic Integration of heterogeneous data sources
• Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval using Semantic
