Uncertainty Reasoning for the Web

Wed 15 Feb 2017

We are looking for submissions addressing topics relevant to the general subject of uncertainty in the context of the World Wide Web (WWW), the Semantic Web (SW) or Linked Data (LD), including fuzzy theory, probability theory, and other approaches.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Syntax and semantics for extensions to WWW-SW-LD languages and frameworks to enable representation of uncertainty

– Logical formalisms to support uncertainty in WWW-SW-LD languages

– Best practices for representing uncertain, incomplete, ambiguous, or controversial information related to WWW-SW-LD

– Probability theory for entity resolution in WWW-SW-LD content

– Non-symbolic and symbolic approaches to uncertainty representation, handling and resolution related to WWW-SW-LD

– Architectures for applying plausible reasoning to the problem of ontology and schema mapping

– Using fuzzy approaches to deal with imprecise concepts within ontologies and schemas

– The concept of a fuzzy/probabilistic ontology and its relevance to WWW-SW-LD

– Best practices for representing uncertain, incomplete, ambiguous, or controversial information related to WWW-SW-LD

– The role of uncertainty as it relates to web services and cloud computing

– Interface protocols with support for uncertainty as a means to improve interoperability among cloud and web services

– Uncertainty reasoning techniques applied to trust issues related to WWW-SW-LD

– Existing implementations of uncertainty reasoning tools in the context of WWW-SW-LD

– Issues and techniques for integrating tools for representing and reasoning with uncertainty

– The future of uncertainty representation, handling and reasoning related to WWW-SW-LD
