8th Chinese Semantic Web & Web Science Conference (CSWS2014)
August 8-12, 2014 Wuhan, China
With only a few years, the rapid developing Web has led to revolutionary changes in the whole human society. The Semantic Web is the next generation of the Web. It provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across applications, enterprises, and community boundaries. Semantic Web technology facilitates building a large-scale Web of machine-readable knowledge that allows for data reuse and integration. Nowadays, many scholars and experts are devoting them to the work of applying the Semantic Web theories into specific practice, while in turn improving the Semantic Web theories and techniques according to the demand in practice. Web Science involves the full scope of Web-related applications, integrating all directions of Web-related interdisciplinary research into a new field. This joint conference aims to promote expansions from the Semantic Web to Web Science, and to discuss the core technology on the Next Generation Web, including swarm intelligence, semantic search, Web security, natural language processing (NLP) etc.

Titile: Semantic search on linked data
Dr. Haofeng Wang, East China University of Science & Technology
Abstract: Semantic Web is to add explicit semantics for data so that machines can not only display these data, but also understand, process and even integrate them. In recent years, with the fast development of the Linking Open Data (LOD) project and the DBpedia project, Semantic Web data sources increase significantly and a large number of graph data in form of RDF are published. The Web is rapidly changing from the one containing Web pages and hyper-links only (called Document Web) to a Data Web with abundant entities and rich relationships between entities. Large search engine companies like Google are building knowledge graph based on these semantic data to improve the quality of search, which indicates that we enter the era of semantic search. In this talk, I will first introduce LOD, the principle and best practice to publish linked data as well as the fundamental of RDF data model and SPARQL query language. Then I will focus on semantic search on LOD. In particular, I will introduce the underlying technologies of several popular semantic search engines such as Sindice, Sig.ma, Falcons, Watsons, Semplore and Hermes.
Bio: Dr. Wang Haofen graduated from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2013. Now he is an assistant professor in East China University of Science & Technology. Dr. Wang has published more than 40 papers in CCF A-level conferences like SIGMOD, SIGIR and AAAI, and CCF B-level conferences like ISWC, CIKM and WWW. He has also published 3 papers in Journal of Web Semantics (CCF B-level journal with impact factor as 3.049), 1 paper at ACM Transaction on Intelligent Systems and Technology, and 1 paper in IEEE Computational Intelligence (impact factor as 2.833). As a technical leader, he led a team to build a scalable semantic search engine, which won the 2nd price of Billion Triple Challenge, ISWC 2008. He also led a team to won the 1st price of data interlinking in ontology matching competition, OAEI, 2011. Moreover, He built the first effort of Chinese Linked Open Data: zhishi.me and was invited to give a talk at W3C Multilingual Workshop, 2013.
Title: Ontology-based data access
Prof. Dr. Guohui Xiao, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
Abstract: In this tutorial we provide a comprehensive understanding of the problem of ontology-based data access (OBDA), from both thetheoretical and the practical points of view. In OBDA, the objective is to access data trough a conceptual layer.Usually, this conceptual layer is expressed in the form of an OWL or RDFS ontology, and the data is stored in relational databases. The terms in the conceptual layer (RDF Graph) are mapped to the data layerusing so-called global-as-view (GAV) mappings, associating to each element of the conceptual layer a (possibly complex) query over thedata sources. GAV mappings have been formalized in the recent R2RML W3C standard. This virtual graph can then be queried using an RDFquery language such as SPARQL.The advantages of OBDA are two folds: (1) with OBDA, one can access the(legacy) database using semantic web techniques; (2) by reusing the techniques in the database system, OBDA provides scalable performance.we provide also a "hands-on'' experience with Ontop, a state-of-the-art system for OBDA. Ontop is an open-source project released under Apache License, developed at the Free University ofBozen-Bolzano and part of the core of the EU project Optique. Ontop is available as: a plugin for Protege 4, SPARQL end-point, and OWLAPI and Sesame libraries. To the best of our knowledge, Ontop is the first system supporting all the following W3C recommendations: OWL, R2RML,SPARQL, SWRL and SPARQL OWL 2 QL regime.
Bio: Dr. Guohui Xiao is a Postdoc researcher at the KRDB Research Centre for Knowledge and Data of Free University of Bozen-Bolzano. Hereceived his PhD from Vienna University of Technology, Austria in 2014 and his MSc and BSc degrees from Peking University, China. His research interests include knowledge representation and reasoning, semantic web, ontology-based data access, and non-monotonic reasoning. He has published several papers in these areas, many of which are published in proceedings of major conferences and journals. He is currently working in the EU FP7 Optique project (Scalable End-userAccess to Big Data) and is one of the core developers of the Ontop system for OBDA.
