Information quantity has rapidly increased on the web recently. Data size has also increased dramatically as multimedia data, which include visual information and auditory information, and has been used more and more in addition to the existing form of text data. It needs the semantic representation in human language to reduce the semantic gap between low-level and high-level characteristics; considering not only the low-level characteristics but also the high-level ones with the use of heterogeneous knowledge such as large scale text, image, video and so forth.

In this context, it is worth noting research that combines heterogeneous knowledge aspects with achievements in designing advanced systems for the acquisition and sophisticated semantic analysis of complex data patterns, group behaviors, and visual information and repositories. Also, advanced radio access technologies are required to support above applications under wireless environments for forthcoming 5G system. Finally, security and privacy concerns when mining and classifying the knowledge collected by personal sensing devices or accessed by external services such as health information systems, city management platforms or Internet of Things is of pivotal importance so as to avoid exposing personal and critical data towards malicious persons or organizations. Therefore, it is demanding to propose proper means to avoid information leakage or falsification without compromising the possibility of performing complex information extraction, inference or classification.

This special issue aims at bringing together leading researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to discuss novel research contributions related to Semantic Approaches for Knowledge Classification within the context of various platforms.
