Matching Offerings and Queries on an Internet of Things Marketplace

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 11155)


A marketplace for the Internet of Things acts as the corner stone of an IoT ecosystem, by matching the offer (i.e., data or functionalities) with the demand coming from IoT applications (e.g. analytics). In this paper, we present the semantic matching implemented on the public BIG IoT marketplace, accessible at
