Special Issue "Semantics in the Future Internet"
A special issue of Future Internet (ISSN 1999-5903).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (22 October 2010).
This special issue publishes revised selected contributions from the workshops of the 3rd Future Internet Symposium 2010 (FIS’10: http://www.fis2010.org): Towards a Converged, Consolidated and Sustainable Future Internet. FIS’10 is a venue for European and international researchers to share their work on next generation Internet technologies. FIS is a scientific forum for the European Union's Future Internet Initiative, an effort to align European Internet research on the shared challenges presented by Europe's increasingly Internet-based society and economy. Six accepted FIS’10 workshops (http://www.fis2010.org/program/accepted-workshops) contribute to serving the interest of the emerging community and foster new researchers as they progress to become the new leaders in this emerging field.
In the last years, semantic technologies have gained an increasing interest and impact in various fields and industry, like e-Science, publishing and content-based business, telecommunications. Numerous Future Internet infrastructures and services have a potential to leverage on and benefit from the large amounts of shared machine processable (i.e., semantic) data that becomes available, often freely (particularly, as Linked Open Data Cloud: http://linkeddata.org), on the Internet and in the companies’ intranets.
Particular areas of interest in this special issue include development of semantic technologies for Internet of Services, Internet of Things and Internet of Content, as well as employment of semantics in related application fields, such as telecommunication networks, smart ubiquitous environments, traffic telematics, energy efficiency, multimedia, e-business, etc. See also the general topics of FIS’10: http://www.fis2010.org/calls/call-for-papers.
