First International Workshop on Semantic Web on Constrained Things (SWoCoT)
“In recent years, the combination of Internet of Things (IoT), Semantics and Web of Things (SWoT) has been more and more popular to collect sensing data according to the semantic web stack and build smart services and applications. One momentum is the release of a W3C recommendation for WoT architecture along with a formal specification of Thing Descriptions. The Web of Things (WoT) allows to describe device semantics, bridging the gap between device and service descriptions. Developers can use WoT standards and tools to collect sensing data and control devices for the applications in agriculture, energy, enterprise, finance, healthcare, industry, etc.”
“At the same time, decentralized infrastructures able to capture and transform data at the edge have gained attraction over centralized ones, due to both the constant attempts to reduce industrial costs and the real necessity to reduce global carbon emissions. Decentralized infrastructures hence represent a step towards the so-called Green Web, especially as they are usually built on small and low-energy consuming devices. However, fulfilling the SWoT promises using such infrastructures poses new challenges as these small devices are constrained in terms of computing capabilities and memory, and since wireless network communications are also energy-consuming and can hinder battery life of autonomous devices. Deploying SWoT standards on such devices require to control and monitor the consumption of these resources, whereas semantic technologies are known to be verbose and computation intensive.”
“This first international workshop aims at bridging together research and industry communities working on the different aspects of embedding data semantics and standards-based solutions into edge and/or constrained Internet and Web of Things setups, as well as reducing the carbon footprint of semantic technologies.”
“The workshop will include a keynote presentation, different types of submission (research, in-use, experience, position, tools and demos), and break-out discussions.”
Co-located with the ESWC Conference 2023 in Hersonissos, Greece
