Mini-track: Semantic Technologies and Big Data Analytics

Track: Intelligence and Intelligent Systems (SIGODIS)




The vision of Semantic Integration for Big Data Analytics is to have
heterogeneous data linked in such a way that machines can understand its
meanings for the exchange and reuse of large amounts of data across
heterogeneous data sources. The semantic representation of heterogeneous
data, augmented with ontology of domain theories, will enable us to link a
large network of human knowledge and make this knowledge
machine-understandable. This will in turn enable various knowledge systems
to effectively analyze and reason the big data to uncover useful
information. Semantic Integration of heterogeneous data has been recognized
as one of the most important research issues and has received considerable
attention from both academia and industry. Semantic integration has made
significant progress over several years when numerous issues have been
addressed and many applications have been developed. However, despite all of
these advances, the current state of semantic integration requires
significant improvements to make it more effective in a broader range of
applications. This mini-track will provide a forum for gaining a better
understanding of the new technologies and their business aspects for
semantic integration for big data analytics. Potential authors/researchers
are encouraged to submit papers that address the issues related to
designing, developing, and evaluating the semantic integration of large
volume of heterogeneous data from the technical, behavioral, economical, or
managerial perspectives.


Best papers from this mini-track will be fast tracked for publication in a
special issue of International Journal of Intelligent Information
Technologies ( <http://www.idea-group.com/IJIIT>


Suggested topics include, but not limited to the following:


*         Semantic interoperability

*         Innovative design artefacts for semantic integration

*         Novel applications for semantic integration for Big Data Analytics

*         Semantic Integration for e-business and e-learning

*         Semantic Web/Ontology for Data Integration

*         Ontology creation, evolution, reconciliation, and mediation for
Big Data Analytics

*         Ontology mapping, Integration, and/or alignment for Big Data

*         Software agents for Semantic Integration

*         Managerial Issues of Semantic Integration for Big Data Analytics
