SWeTI 2018 : International Workshop on Semantic Web of Things for Industry 4.0
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
International Workshop on Semantic Web of Things for Industry 4.0 (SWeTI 2018)
In conjunction with 15th ESWC Conference 2018
June 3rd-7th, 2018, Heraklion, Crete Greece
Submission: March 02, 2018
** Aims of the Workshop **
Industry 4.0 refers to the 4th Industrial revolution – the recent trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. To fully realize the Industry 4.0 vision, manufacturers need to unlock several capabilities: vertical integration through connected and smart manufacturing assets of a factory; horizontal integration through connecting discrete operational systems of a factory; end-to-end integration through the entire supply chain. In recent technology advancements in Web of Things (WoT) and Semantic Web (Jointly referred as Semantic Web of Things) have a promising role to play to address Industry 4.0 vision. Integration of Semantic Web with WoT technologies enables communications among heterogeneous Industrial assets. Semantic Web can be also used to represent manufacturing knowledge in a machine-interpretable way. The semantic modeling of industrial assets and their service produces unambiguous and machine-interpretable descriptions and creates interoperability among assets and their services across domains. This workshop aims to bring together the different disciplines related to use of Semantic Web of Things for Industry 4.0 and form an international community to identify the major challenges and research directions. The workshop is intended to make the first step in shaping such community and providing a forum that enables:
- Sharing techniques and experience
- Develop better underlying of the foundation principles of building Industry 4.0 systems using Semantic Web
- Identifying potential domains and application areas
- Identifying future research directions
** Categories of Papers **
SWeTI 2018 welcomes papers in the following categories:
- Research papers, presenting original research with industrial case studies with evaluation of approach or case studies. Research papers are limited to 15 pages.
- Position papers, describing ongoing research and future emerging trends in Industry 4.0 and Semantic Web areas. papers are limited to 6 pages.
- Case studies and experience reports, reporting a real-world case study of Industry 4.0 and use of Semantic Web. Case studies and experience reports are limited to 6 pages.
- Demo papers from academic and industrial environments, ranging from early prototype to commercialized products, demonstrating advances to the state of the practices. Papers in this category are limited to 4 pages.
** Topics of Interest **
SWeTI 2018 invites submission covering the following topics (but not limit itself to):
- Industry 4.0 implementation and real-world case studies
- Challenges, vision, and concepts for Industry 4.0 and Semantic Web
- Semantic frameworks & architectures for interoperability among Industry 4.0 platforms
- Semantic data models for sensor data representation and integration for Smart factory domains
- Semantic architectures and middleware for building Industry 4.0 applications
- Semantic techniques using edge & fog computing for Manufacturing scenarios

- Semantic frameworks for developing Industry 4.0 applications
- Real-time IoT data analytics, data aggregation, data abstraction and event detection
- Use of Semantic Web in Emerging Industry 4.0 scenarios such as supply chain, predictive maintenance, asset tracking, logistics
** Important Dates **
Paper submissions: Friday, March 2, 2018
Notifications to authors: Friday, March 30, 2018
Camera-ready copies: Friday, April 13, 2018
Workshop: June 3rd and 4th, 2018
** Submission **
The paper review process will be single-blind (no need to anonymize the papers). Every submission will be reviewed by at least two independent referees. The emphasis will be given more on usefulness and originality. If accepted, the paper must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors. All submissions should be formatted according to the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
Accepted papers will be published in online workshop proceedings (e.g., CEUR). Organizers will arrange an invited submission for one selected best paper from workshop proceedings to a special edition of a relevant journal.
Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF format at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sweti18
