     Special Session on Resource-aware Semantic Technologies

	        	at the

  Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST 2018)

As Semantic Technologies gain momentum, their impact on resources and 
society increases. At the same time application developers would like to 
employ semantic technologies on devices that are heavily resource 
constrained such as mobile devices. So far the efficiency of semantic 
technologies is still mainly assessed by running times. Its vertical 
scalability (scale-up) has been investigated for a while now. So far 
adaptive horizontal scalability (scale-out) of semantic technologies and 
systems is  hardly investigated. Here the challenge is to utilize 
resources opportunistically and efficiently, based on availability and 
the application requirements.  This is significant and challenging in 
semantic-enabled contexts -- especially in those with dynamic networks 
of independent devices, such as multi-agent systems and IoT.

   While computational and cognitive complexity of semantic technologies 
are being investigated, work on their resource consumption, e.g. in 
terms of energy or storage, is still in its infancy. However, assessing, 
managing and predicting the resource consumption is a vital prerequisite 
for the wider usefulness of semantic technologies.

The special session calls for contributions regarding, but not limited 
to the following topics:

     - resource-adaptive semantic technologies
     - reasoning algorithms for resource-bound hardware
     - measurement frameworks for energy-consumption of semantic
     - ontologies for energy management
     - prediction methods for resource consumption
     - application of semantic technologies for resource management
