   EXTENDED CALL FOR PAPERS

   8TH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON APPLICATIONS OF SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGIES
   (AST 2014 – http://ast2014.fzi.de)

   EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MAY 11, 2014

   CO-LOCATED WITH INFORMATIK 2014 – BIG DATA: DEALING WITH COMPLEXITY

   STUTTGART, GERMANY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2014

----------------------------------------
AIM AND GOALS
----------------------------------------
Semantic Technologies encode meanings explicitly and independent from concrete formats and application logic. This enables machines and people likewise to understand, share, and reason over semantically represented data during retrieval and processing time. They provide an abstraction layer on top of existing ICT technologies and infrastructures aiming at the interrelation and integration of data and processes in meaningful ways. In the light of the W3C’s vision of a Web of Linked Data, Semantic Technologies are substantial constituents for the creation of data stores, the building of domain vocabularies, and the specification of data handling rules.

The application of Semantic Technologies is currently being investigated in various fields, including Ambient Intelligence, Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledge Management, Robotics, Bioinformatics and many more. We believe that the methods and tools provided by Semantic Technologies will play a crucial role in these and other application areas for the foreseeable future, in particular related to Big and Smart Data. A special emphasis will therefore be given to works that describe key issues and practices related to a synthesis of Semantic Technologies and Big and Smart Data.

The AST workshop will provide an open and stimulating environment that brings together researchers, practitioners and users from various fields to discuss goals, limitations, challenges, and real experiences related to the application and deployment of Semantic Technologies.
