Semantics and Big Data

The Web has evolved into an important platform for creating, sharing, and managing structured data that generates significant value in many applications. This success is tightly coupled to the continued growth of Web data in terms of volume, velocity, variety, veracity, and value. Large amounts of data are now available in RDF, JSON, CSV, or Microformats through APIs, streams, data dumps, or individual Web documents. The challenge to researchers is to develop tools and methods to fully exploit the potential of these resources.

The WWW 2016 Semantics and Big Data track aims at bringing together researchers from Semantic Web, Databases, and Artificial Intelligence to discuss open issues and solutions for the integration, description, management, analysis, and mining of Web data. We invite submissions on all aspects of data on the Web, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Integration: linking, joining, integrating, aligning, and reconciling Web data and ontologies from different sources
  • Representation: languages and formats for representing data & meta-data, schemas, ontologies, knowledge graphs, and provenance information
  • Mining and Curation: information extraction, crowdsourcing, discovery, data mining, cleansing, and consolidation
  • Data Management, Update, and Query: maintaining, refreshing, and accessing large and dynamic Web datasets
  • Data Analytics and Inference: techniques for deriving insights from Web data, such as prediction, reasoning, ranking, visualization, and question answering
  • Tools, Datasets, Benchmarks: relevant digital assets made available to researchers and practitioners
  • Applications: innovative applications in actual practical use, e.g., in enterprise, education, science, medicine, mobile, web search, social networks, etc.

We encourage authors to make their datasets, software, and experimental results available on the Web so as to promote transparency, reproducibility, and future reuse of their results.
