Web2Touch 2020: Semantic Technologies for Smart Information Sharing

and Web Collaboration


Conference Track @ 29th IEEE WETICE 2020

Basque Coast – Bayonne, France, June 10-12, 2020





Web2Touch (W2T), since its early days, is committed to bringing solutions for

collaborative work using the Web. New advances in Web-based systems are the

driver for changes in cooperative activities, such as risk and cybersystems

management, or smart environments, where human activities are more and more

performed via the internet and the Web. Web practitioners, users and

applications exploit, in rapidly varying ways, the richness of the Web to

support the user activities. Based on these considerations, the Web2Touch

track tackles knowledge and data sharing based on software engineering, on

artificial intelligence, and on methods for Knowledge Organization Systems

(KOS) (e.g. ontologies, taxonomies, etc.). The focus of the track is on

information creation, maintenance, disambiguation, interlinking, veracity and

security. Reasoning and deep learning techniques are also considered, since

these lead to better decisions or awareness of events. W2T deepens the

concept of \”working together\” by exploring decision support assistance,

collective intelligence, semantic search, smart environments,

intentions-based analysis, and other collaborative-based ways for problem

solving. W2T aims at exploring the state-of-the-art on these topics and

users\’ practical experiences, as well as trends and research, paving the way

for future collaborative approaches to knowledge engineering and sharing.

In the previous editions of W2T, which started in 2007, best papers were

published in International Journals, such as Journal of Web Portals (2011 and

2013), Concurrency and Computation and Collaborative Enterprise (2013),

Future Generation Computer Systems (2015 and 2016), and Springer Nature

Computer Science (2019).

Topics Covered


W2T concerns improvements obtained through enhanced organization

and management of knowledge. Examples are models and tools to represent

dynamic changes in shared information, smart (context-aware) Web

applications, and new domains of application of semantic techniques, such as

Industry 4.0, Big Data, social networks, Internet of Things,

enhanced connectivity, and mobile technologies. W2T is also about practical

experiences in both well established and emerging interdisciplinary

applications, including eHealth, smart cities, smart companies,

entertainment, eLearning, education, and digital agriculture. Contributions

addressing one or more of the following topics are expected:

+ Ontologies and Knowledge Graphs

– Ontology tools, ontology engineering, reuse and integration

– Knowledge Graph expansion, enrichment, and validation

– Knowledge and data quality assessment

– Data profiling and axiom discovery

– Knowledge and Data provenance

– Knowledge and Data veracity

+ Semantic sharing and collaborative knowledge management

– Data integration and interlinking from and across different sources and formats/

semantics including big Web data, linked open data, crowdsourced data, social

data, knowledge networks data

– Crowdsourcing techniques for semantic collaboration

– Use of semantics in mobile Web, wearable and edge computing, and cross-device

content management and delivery

– Semantic annotations, \’semantifying\’ collaborative Web sources and Semantic

technologies for Information Extraction Transformation and Loading (ETL)

+ Collaborative semantic Web techniques and applications

– Experiences and best practices in semantic Web support for collaborative work

and business

– Semantic techniques for cultural progress and community involvement

– Collaborative semantic Web in interdisciplinary applications such as Web

science, eHealth, education, entertainment, smart environments, smart factories

in the Industry 4.0, and digital agriculture

– Privacy, security and safety in smart environments (cybersecurity

and risks in cybersystems)

+ Experiences analyzing publicly available datasets, such as: Computer Science

Education (e.g., Blackbox, Engage-csedu), MOOC (e.g., Coursera, EdX), Computer

Virology (e.g., Genoma, Drebin), Healthcare, Bioinformatics (e.g., Dream Challenges)
