Hi all,

This event might be of interest to DL researchers working on temporal 
and quantitative aspects, or on streaming and top-k query answering. See 
below for details.



3rd International Workshop on Ordering and Reasoning (OrdRing2014)
October 19th/20th, 2014 - Riva del Garda, Trentino, Italy

Co-located with the 13th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2014)


* Deadline Extended to 14.7.2014
* The two best papers of OrdRing2014 have the opportunity to be 
published on Journal on Data Semantics.


Abstract submission deadline: still open
Paper submission deadline: July 14, 2014
Notification of acceptance: July 30, 2014


More and more applications require real-time processing of large, 
dynamically generated, ordered data, where order captures essential 
information about recency, proximity or relevance. Recency is crucial 
for recognizing temporal events, as in complex event processing; 
proximity and relevance are essential for ranking query answers, as in 
top-k query answering. In some cases, orders are a natural, even 
unavoidable, aspect of the data, which may constrain the ways in which 
we can access it. In other cases, orders need to be derived by 
additional computations, and then be enforced on the (unordered) input. 
While each of these scenarios represents some unique challenges, all of 
them involve streams of data and require us to reason about sequences of 
events. The goal of this workshop is to explore this joint concept of 
ordered data processing.

Semantic technologies can play a relevant role in this setting, as they 
provide the expressive power to integrate highly dynamic sources. This 
is also witnessed by a number of recent works on order-related concepts, 
such as Stream Reasoning and top-k ontological query answering. Stream 
and rank-aware data management techniques are progressively providing 
reactive and reliable query answering over massive datasets, while 
ontological process models allow us to define meaningful patterns in 
event streams. Related works range from applied topics, such as query 
optimization, to foundational topics, such as temporal logics.

This workshop (as its predecessors in 2011 and 2013) aims at bringing 
together this growing and very active community interested in 
integrating ordering with reasoning by using methods inspired by stream 
and rank-aware data management. It thus aims to stimulate and guide a 
paradigm shift in semantic technologies.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Streaming algorithms in query answering and reasoning
- Ontology-based data access over data streams
- Modelling complex events, processes, and patterns in ordered data
- Incremental maintenance of materialization of data streams
- Continuous query answering
- Ontological top-k query answering
- Continuous and top-k query answering for fuzzy and probabilistic logics
- Order in knowledge representation, such as temporal or spacial orders
- Topologies for distributed processing of data streams
- Data compression algorithms for data stream processing
- Parallelization and distribution in order-aware semantic technologies
- Approximation approaches to inference with orderings
- APIs for data stream exchange
- Proposals for and applications of benchmarks
- Applications of stream reasoning and top-k ontological query answering
- Implementation and evaluation experiences


We will welcome submissions describing ideas, experiments, and 
application visions originating from requirements for, and efforts aimed 
at, interleaving ordering and reasoning. We will encourage short 
position and short demo papers not exceeding 6 pages as well as longer 
technical papers not exceeding 12 pages. They should follow the LNCS 
proceedings style files..

Submissions should be formatted according to the Lecture Notes in 
Computer Science guidelines for proceedings available at 
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0. Papers 
should be submitted in PDF format. All submissions will be done 
electronically via the OrdRing2014 web submission system 

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the 
workshop. Information about registration will appear soon on the ISWC 
2014 Web page.

The Workshop Proceedings will be published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings
