Special Issue "Semantics for Big Data Integration"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 September 2018)
In recent years, there has been a great deal of interest in big data. Much of the work on big data has focused on volume and velocity in order to consider data set size, but the problems of variety, velocity, and veracity are equally important in dealing with heterogeneity, diversity, and complexity of data. Semantic technologies can be a means to deal with these issues.
Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to publish high-quality research, from academic and industrial stakeholders, for disseminating innovative solutions that explore how big data can leverage semantics, i.e., what are the challenges and opportunities arising from adapting and transferring semantic technologies to the big data context.
Original, high-quality contributions that have not yet been published, submitted, or are not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences are sought.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- interplay of semantics and big data
- semantic methods and technologies applied to big data dimensions
- scalability of semantic methods and technologies
- the use of semantic metadata, linked open data and ontologies for big data
- semantic for big data extraction, transformation and integration
- Knowledge integration from big data on the Web

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
