Venue: JIST2016 Conference, Singapore


Linked Data is now recognized as one of the prominent ways for publishing data on the web. Even though Linked Data Technology is the results of the long-term development in Semantic Web Community, it is not easy to deploy it to the real problems and often needs to be adapted for different domains. Applying ontology to augment publishing and analyzing semantic data is one of the most important research areas. Ontology and ontology-based application can enhance modeling and processing of the semantic data, especially the data in specific domains, in terms of data integration, interoperability, reusability and intelligence.

In this workshop, we want to share the experience and solutions to apply ontologies to enhance semantic data management, focusing on data publishing and consumption in specific domains. We welcome not only Semantic Web researchers but also knowledge engineers, and domain experts, who developed and applied ontologies and ontology-based applications for enhancing semantic data publishing and analysis for specific domains.

Topics of interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Ontology Design and Modelling for Supporting Semantic Data Processing
    • Ontology for specific domains (e.g. health care, education, open government, travel, culture, library, etc.) 
    • Knowledge acquisition from domain experts
    • Knowledge acquisition and learning from data
  • Ontology and its Application for Enhancing Semantic Data Publishing
    • Ontology-based conversion of data to RDF
    • Ontology-based data integration
    • Ontology-based identity management
    • Ontology-based database schema mapping
    • Domain-specific models for Linked data publishing
  • Ontology and its Application for Enhancing Semantic Data Consumption
    • Ontology-based Data Access (OBDA)
    • Ontology-based Linked data application framework
    • Domain-dependent semantic data analysis (e.g. quality assessment, data visualization, etc.)
    • Ontology-based interface and interaction for Linked data application
