SPECIAL ISSUE ON THE UBIQUITOUS SEMANTIC WEB (
http://www.ijswis.org/?q=node/49)
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL ON SEMANTIC WEB AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Guest Editor:
    •    Dr. Jeff Z. Pan, University of Aberdeen, UK
    •    Dr. Shonali Krishnaswamy, Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R),
Singapore
    •    Dr. Yuan-Fang Li, Monash University, Australia
    •    Prof. Dr. Manfred Hauswirth, Digital Enterprise Research

INTRODUCTION:
The recent years have witnessed an explosive growth of smart devices
(phones, tablets, etc.), with iOS and Android being the two leading
platforms. Collectively Android and iOS dominate the smart devices market,
accounting for more than 90% of the market share.

Typically equipped with a comprehensive operating system, versatile
connectivity options, rich multimedia support, various sensing capabilities
and generous computational resources, smart, mobile devices has truly
enabled ubiquitous and situation-aware communication. We believe it is an
area of tremendous growth potential for the adoption of semantic
technologies.

After more than a decade of active research, tremendous progress has been
made in fundamental research areas, including ontology reasoning, query
answering, Linked Data, among others. However, the mobile setting is an
emerging research area and many unique challenges need to be addressed for
realizing the ubiquitous Semantic Web. On portable devices, such challenges
include, for example, limited computing capabilities, battery power,
connectivity and bandwidth, trustworthiness of devices, services,
context-aware semantic computing, user profiling, privacy issues, to name a
few.


OBJECTIVE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE:
The special issue welcomes original, high-quality research works on the
Ubiquitous Semantic Web. These include theoretical, applied research as
well as descriptions of innovative application of Semantic Web technologies
in the ubiquitous setting. Wherever applicable, submissions should
demonstrate the contribution of the research through a systematic
evaluation.


RECOMMENDED TOPICS:
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited
to) the following:

    •    The optimization and adaptation of semantic infrastructure
(ontology reasoning, SPARQL and conjunctive query answering, etc.) on
mobile devices: performance, scalability, power consumption, etc.
    •    User and context modeling
    •    Presentation and visualization of semantic data on mobile devices
    •    Production and consumption of semantic data on mobile devices
    •    Security, trust, and privacy issues on the Ubiquitous Semantic Web
    •    Semantic sensors and sensor networks
    •    Linked Stream Data processing
    •    Semantic, context-aware matchmaking
    •    Semantic ubiquitous cloud computing
    •    Development, testing, deployment tools and environment for
ubiquitous semantic applications
    •    Application of Semantic Web languages, techniques and systems on
mobile devices


SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special
theme issue on The Ubiquitous Semantic Web on or before June 1st 2014
(abstract) and June 15th 2014 (full paper). All submissions must be
original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED
AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS
at http://www.igi-global.com/journals/guidelines-for-submission.aspx.
Papers must follow APA style for reference citations.

After submitting the paper, please also inform the guest editors by email,
indicating the paper ID assigned by the submission system. If a submission
is based on a prior conference or workshop publication, the journal
submission must demonstrate substantial differences/improvement. For such
an extended manuscript, please explicitly cite previous publications on
which the current submission is based, along with a note explaining the
main differences/improvements.

More information can be found on the special issue web site:
http://www.ijswis.org/?q=node/49. Please follow the journal's guidelines
for submissions. Initial submission should be made as a PDF document to the
EasyChair website. Please include, in accordance with the journal's
guidelines, 5-10 keywords, to assist both with indexing and reviewer
selection. Contact: ijswiswdq20130 at easychair.org
