OrdRing 2011 Workshop Page

Goal of the workshop

The goal of the OrdRing 2011 workshop is to bring together the growing and very active community of Semantic Web researchers and practitioners interested in novel ideas, experiments, and application visions originating from requirements for and efforts aimed at combining ordering and reasoning.

Context and motivation

As the number and size of data sources increases, the need arises for efficient data computations and analysis techniques. In several settings, streaming algorithms become the only class of algorithm practically able to handle the huge amount of available information.

Semantic Web researchers and practitioners have now been using streaming algorithms for more than a decade, and with increasing success. Many SPARQL engines internally use streams for evaluating issued queries. The Description Logic community has also been investigating top-k ontological query answering, and the idea of Stream Reasoning is gaining considerable momentum.

Topics of interest

 Topics of interest are related to :

  • Relation between streaming algorithms and reasoning techniques
  • Notion of soundness and completeness for reasoning approaches that use streaming algorithms
  • Knowledge representation techniques for ordered facts
  • Modeling search services (i.e., services that provides ranked outputs)
  • Reasoning techniques that exploit ordering/ranking
  • Top-k ontological query answering
  • Efficient SPARQL query evaluation using streaming algorithms
  • Reasoning on Data Stream
  • Integrating data streams with RDF and relational stores
  • Applications of stream reasoning and query answering
  • Implementation and evaluation experiences

Submission Guidelines

Papers submitted to OrdRing 2011 should explore open research problems, and must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three PC members. Paper acceptance will be based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation.

The workshop will accept:

  •     Full research and experience papers (maximum length: 12 pages)
  •     Short Papers (maximum length: 6 pages)
  •     Position and demonstration Papers (maximum length: 4 pages)

Paper submissions will have to be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and are to be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ordring2011).

Important Dates

  • Abstract submission deadline: August 12, 2011
  • Paper submission deadline: August 19, 2011
  • Notification of acceptance: September 10, 2011
  • Camera ready papers: September 15, 2011
  • Workshop date: October 23, 2011

Workshop Proceedings

Workshop papers will be published as CEUR-WS Proceedings. The best papers will have the opportunity to be published in the LNCS Search Computing book series by Springer.
At least one author of an accepted paper must register and participate in the workshop. Registration is subject to the terms, conditions and procedure of the main ISWC conference to be found on their website.
