Cyber-Physical Systems are enhancing several industry sectors through a
higher coordination between computational and physical elements.
Nevertheless, challenges remain at multiple levels:

·        coping with platform hardware/software heterogeneity and
computational resource restrictions;

·        device communication and interoperability, requiring protocols and
systems with high autonomy and flexibility in information storage,
management and discovery;

·        real-time event detection and characterization: dynamic
context-aware data analysis should leverage resources from available nearby
devices in an opportunistic way and produce human- and
machine-understandable event annotations;

·        high-level frameworks and applications for resource-constrained
and/or real-time platforms, integrating personal devices (smartphones,
tablets, wearables) into industrial control networks to put humans in the

Semantic technologies provide a possible solution paradigm, fostering open
knowledge-based architectures exploiting automated reasoning for
information management and decision making.

The goal of the “Semantic Cyber-Physical Systems for Industry 4.0” special
session is to collect the most recent and advanced research on topics such
as the Semantic Web of Things, opportunistic computing and semantic-enabled
systems where devices, agents and people interact, specifically in Industry
4.0 settings. Innovative applications and case studies are also welcome,
including semantic-based approaches for smart manufacturing, supply chain
management, collaboration and co-design to name a few.
