SSWS 2013 in Australia at ISWC 2013

SSWS 2013 is the ninth edition of the successful Scalable Semantic Web Knowledge Base Systems workshop series. This workshop provides a forum for discussing scalability issues for the Semantic Web, with the focus on the development and deployment of knowledge base systems for processing Semantic Web data.

We expect that scalability issues are going to challenge the Semantic Web for a long time and significant effort is needed in order to tackle them. This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners to share their recent ideas and advances towards building scalable knowledge base systems for the Semantic Web.

As in previous years the SSWS workshop is co-located with the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2013) in Sydney, Australia.

The workshop will be held on Monday October 21, 2013 as a full day event at the Sydney Masonic Conference & Function Centre. For more information about the venue please check the ISWC Workshop Venue page

Workshop Topics

The workshop will be centered on the discussion of three major aspects: 1) foundations, methods and technologies for pushing forward the state-of-the-art; 2) performance evaluation and related principles, methodologies and tools; 3) identification of important issues and future research directions. Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Semantic Web repositories
  • Reasoning mechanisms, techniques and systems
  • Query evaluation and optimization
  • Performance evaluation and benchmarks
  • Distributed knowledge base systems
  • Large scale knowledge base management
  • Semantic Web-based information integration
