Internet of Things (IoT) is an area of innovation and growth. It is more and more present in our daily lives in application areas like Smart Cars and mobility, Smart Cities, Health and Tourism. These applications, based on network-enabled devices, such as smartphones, connected domotic devices, different kinds of sensors, etc., highly contribute to data and resources generation/creation. Usually generated by such devices in an autonomous and isolated way, these data and resources are often highly heterogeneous and require hard efforts to be reused, integrated or aggregated in order to obtain added-value data and services. This heterogeneity problem is intensified by the great volumes of such generated data and resources that makes it difficult to manage with non-automatic solutions. In this context, researches conducted in the fields of Web services and semantic Web have led to interesting solutions allowing to tackle, from one hand, the heterogeneity problems based on standard protocols and the automation problem based on ontologies, from the other hand.
These solutions seem however to be limited in the context of IoT for several reasons, including the different communication protocols, different constraints related to the connected smart devices, specificity of different used ontologies, specificity of Web services composition models that makes them hardly reusable, etc. A more global integration considering Linked Open Data (LOD) principles should be thought for a high efficiency use and reuse of IoT data and resources. This could be done by well-adapting existing Semantic Web standards to IoT specificities from the one hand, and by natively taking into account domain knowledge while generating, linking, integrating IoT data and resources, from the other hand.
The workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working in IoT, Semantic Web, and Web services domains in order to present, discuss and share original research works and practical experiences.
