Journal on Data Semantics

ISSN: 1861-2032 (Print) 1861-2040 (Online)


With the Web serving as a huge worldwide data repository, issues related to data semantics (familiar to database modelers since the 1970s) have again become of paramount importance. As Web data comes from heterogeneous, possibly unknown and mostly uncontrolled sources, it is anything but obvious how the information beyond the most basic factual data can be correctly understood. The same concern applies to data that is exchanged between systems that need to agree on its meaning in order to avoid dangerous misunderstandings. Semantic elicitation and the availability of appropriate semantic metadata are the key to the meaningful use of information in modern distributed environments. The Journal on Data Semantics (JoDS) provides an international high-quality publication venue for researchers whose themes cover issues related to information semantics. Its target domain ranges from theories supporting the formal definition of semantic content to innovative domain-specific applications of semantic knowledge, thus covering work done on conceptual modeling, databases, Semantic Web, information systems, workflow and process modeling, ontologies, business intelligence, interoperability, mobile information services, data warehousing, knowledge representation and reasoning, and artificial intelligence.Topics of relevance to this journal include (but are not limited to):Conceptualization, knowledge representation and reasoningConceptual data, process, workflow, and event modelingProvenance, evolution and change managementContext and context-dependent representations and processingMulti-model and multi-paradigm approachesMappings, transformations, reverse engineering and semantic elicitationSemantic interoperability, semantic mediators and metadata managementOntology models and languages, ontology-driven applicationsOntology, schema, data and process integration, reconciliat, ion and alignmentWeb semantics and semi-structured dataIntegrity description and handlingSemantics in data mining and knowledge extractionSemantics in business intelligence, analytics and data visualizationSpatial, temporal, multimedia and multimodal semanticsSemantic mobility data and services for mobile usersSupporting tools and applications of semantic-driven approachesSubmissions may qualify as research papers, survey articles, industry papers, position papers, or short communications, and should contain original material that has not been submitted or published elsewhere.
