Call for papers: Special issue of the Semantic Web journal on



One of the key challenges in making use of Big Data lies in
finding ways of dealing with heterogeneity, diversity, and
complexity of the data, while its volume and velocity forbid
solutions available for smaller datasets as based, e.g., on
manual curation or manual integration of data. Semantic Web
Technologies are meant to deal with these issues, and indeed
since the advent of Linked Data a few years ago, they have become
central to mainstream Semantic Web research and development. We
can easily understand Linked Data as being a part of the greater
Big Data landscape, as many of the challenges are the same. The
linking component of Linked Data, however, puts an additional
focus on the integration and conflation of data across multiple

Possible Topics

Topics of interest focus explicitly on the interplay of Semantics
and Big Data, and include

    the use of semantic metadata and ontologies for Big Data, the
    use of formal and informal semantics, the integration and
    interplay of deductive (semantic) and statistical methods,
    methods to establish semantic interoperability between data
    sources, ways of dealing with semantic heterogeneity,
    scalability of Semantic Web methods and tools, and semantic
    approaches to the explication of requirements from eScience
