Call for Papers: Special Issue on Semantic Technologies and Interoperability in the Built Environment

Call for papers: Special Issue on

Semantic Technologies and Interoperability in the Built Environment

Description of the topic

The built environment encompasses a variety of artefacts ranging from buildings to infrastructures. These artefacts are related at different scales –from the singular building, furniture, street lights… to the entire city–, and are interlinked in multiple ways –buildings connected to supply infrastructures and transport networks, buildings defining public spaces–.

Semantic Web journal: Special Call for Linked Dataset Descriptions

Linked Data is a key enabler for the Semantic Web vision and one of the steps towards a truly "Semantic Web".

The Semantic Web journal calls for brief papers (usually about 5-8 pages) containing a concise description of a Linked Dataset. The paper shall describe in concise and clear terms key characteristics of the dataset as a guide to its usage for various (possibly unforeseen) purposes. In particular, such a paper shall typically give information, amongst others, on the following aspects of the dataset (if applicable).
