Stream Reasoning

In the recent years, there has been an increasing speed and volume of data production in several domains, such as Internet of Things, Social Networks and Smart Cities.

Consequently, techniques to process huge amounts of heterogeneous streaming data in a continuous fashion are getting more and more important.
