META4eS 2015 - International Workshop on Methods, Evaluation, Tools and Applications for the Creation and Consumption of Structured Data for the e-Society (META4eS’15)

Date2015-10-28 - 2015-10-30


VenueRhodes island, Greece Greece



Topics/Call fo Papers

The future e-Society - renamed “OnTheMoveSociety” in the context of Meta4eS - is an e-inclusive society based on the extensive use of digital technologies at all levels of interaction between its members. It is a society that evolves based on knowledge and that empowers individuals by creating virtual communities that benefit from social inclusion, access to information, enhanced participation, interaction and freedom of expression, among other. This leads to radical changes in the dynamics and the interaction between its members, determining new economic scenarios.
In this context, the role of the World Wide Web and the information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the way people and organisations exchange information and interact in the social cyberspace is crucial. Large amounts of structured data – Big (Open) Data – are being generated, published and shared and a growing number of services and applications emerge from it.
The structured data that are being published – e.g., as RDF on the Web of Data – is the result of current popular initiatives adopted by a growing number of actors from transversal domains (e.g. governments, city municipalities, etc.). Managing such data in order to make sense of it by producing services and applications for end-user consumption from government and public body data is presently a huge challenge for the research community, going towards a Value Web. From a business perspective, the (dynamic) composition of services using Big Structured Data stimulates the market.
These initiatives take into account methods for the creation, storage and consumption of increasing amounts of structured data and tools that make possible their application by end-users to real-life situations, as well as their evaluation. The final aim is to lower the barrier between end-users and ICTs through contributions to the e-Society such as multilingual information, information visualisation, privacy and trust, rich multimedia retrieval, etc.
The applications must be designed in such a way to help people use their knowledge at best and generate new knowledge in return, while keeping intact their privacy and confidentiality, whether it is in e-Health, e-Government, e-Democracy andin other areas of the e-Society.
The third edition of the Meta4eS workshop aims at bringing together researchers, professionals and experts interested to discuss, demonstrate and share best practices, ideas and results around the creation, management and,particularly,consumption of structured data for the e-Society. The focus will be both on scientific and technological research and on industrial use cases from various application domains.
This year Meta4eS has a special focus on applications from the Energy and Sustainability domain.We encourage submissions of research results or on-going (case) studies in the context of Big (Open) Data,Smart Knowledge Processing for Society-on-the-move Applications, and Energy Data Value Chain, Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency, Demand-Response Management.
Topics related to methods, tools and applications for the creation and consumption of Big Structured Data (SD) for e-Society and their evaluation are of interest. These include (but are not limited to) best practices, case studies and tendencies related to:
• Ontology Evolution from Social Processes
• Use of Natural Language Resources in the Creation and Consumption of SD
• Automatic Multimedia Annotation
• Semantic-driven Multimedia Retrieval
• Exploiting Multilingual Terminology for SD Consumption
• Automation of the generation of RDF from legacy databases
• Visualisation of Big SD
• SD Contribution to e-Society
• Knowledge Creation and Knowledge Sharing in e-Society
• Best Practices in Consuming Big SD for e-Society
• Lightweight Ontology Creation Methodologies for e-Society
• Ontology in Use for e-Society Applications (focus on e-Energy)
• Service composition for e-Society
• Security, Privacy and Trust in Consuming SD
• Evaluation Methodologies
• Usability Testing applied to Big SD in e-Society
• End-user experience with Big (open) Data
• Research Projects and Live Demos regarding Applications of SD for e-Society
• Semantic Information Processing for Biometric Applications
• Application of Semantics for Smart Buildings, Smart Grids, Smart Transport and Smart Cities
