Dear all,

The 4th edition of the workshop on "Ordering and Reasoning" again covers 
many topics related to temporal and stream reasoning and query 
answering. The final deadline is 12 July (abstracts 8 July). See below 
for details.



4th International Workshop on Ordering and Reasoning (OrdRing2015)
October 11th/12th, 2015 - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, US

Co-located with the 14th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2015)



New abstract submission deadline: July 8, 2015  **extended**
New paper submission deadline: July 12, 2015    **extended**
Notification of acceptance: August 7, 2015


More and more applications require real-time processing of large, 
dynamically generated, ordered data, where order captures essential 
information about recency, proximity or relevance. Recency is crucial 
for recognizing temporal events, as in complex event processing; 
proximity and relevance are essential for ranking query answers, as in 
top-k query answering. In some cases, orders are a natural, even 
unavoidable, aspect of the data, which may constrain the ways in which 
we can access it. In other cases, orders need to be derived by 
additional computations, and then be enforced on the (unordered) input. 
While each of these scenarios represents some unique challenges, all of 
them involve streams of data and require us to reason about sequences of 
events. The goal of this workshop is to explore this joint concept of 
ordered data processing.

Semantic technologies can play a relevant role in this setting, as they 
provide the expressive power to integrate highly dynamic sources. This 
is also witnessed by a number of recent works on order-related concepts, 
such as Stream Reasoning and top-k ontological query answering. Stream 
and rank-aware data management techniques are progressively providing 
reactive and reliable query answering over massive datasets, while 
ontological process models allow us to define meaningful patterns in 
event streams. Related works range from applied topics, such as query 
optimization, to foundational topics, such as temporal logics.

This workshop (as its predecessors in 2011, 2013 and 2014) aims at 
bringing together this growing and very active community interested in 
integrating ordering with reasoning by using methods inspired by stream 
and rank-aware data management. It thus aims to stimulate and guide a 
paradigm shift in semantic technologies.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  * Streaming algorithms in query answering and reasoning
  * Ontology-based data access over data streams
  * Modelling complex events, processes, and patterns in ordered data
  * Incremental maintenance of materialization of data streams
  * Continuous query answering
  * Ontological top-k query answering
  * Continuous and top-k query answering for fuzzy and probabilistic logics
  * Order in knowledge representation, such as temporal or spatial orders
  * Topologies for distributed processing of data streams
  * Data compression algorithms for data stream processing
  * Parallelization and distribution in order-aware semantic technologies
  * Approximation approaches to inference with orderings
  * APIs for data stream exchange
  * Proposals for and applications of benchmarks
  * Applications of stream reasoning and top-k ontological query answering
  * Implementation and evaluation experiences


We welcome submissions describing ideas, experiments, and application 
visions originating from requirements for, and efforts aimed at, 
interleaving ordering and reasoning. We encourage:
  * short position and short demo papers not exceeding 6 pages;
  * scientific and technical papers not exceeding 12 pages
  * Expressions of Interest (EoI) not exceeding two pages, describing 
expertise, current research interests and relation to the community and 
ISWC audience in general.

Submissions should be formatted according to the Lecture Notes in 
Computer Science guidelines for proceedings available at 
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0. Papers 
should be submitted in PDF format. All submissions will be done 
electronically via the OrdRing2015 web submission system 

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the 
workshop. Information about registration will appear soon on the ISWC 
2015 Web page.

The Workshop Proceedings will be published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings 
(www.ceur-ws.org <http://www.ceur-ws.org>)
