Ordering and Reasoning


Sunday, October 23rd - 09:00 - 12:30 - Room: Hayden

The goal of the ORDRING 2011 workshop is to bring together the growing and very active community of Semantic Web researchers and practitioners interested in novel ideas, experiments, and application visions originating from the efforts aimed at interleaving ordering and reasoning.

As the number and size of data sources increases, the need arises for efficient data computations and analysis techniques. In several settings, streaming algorithms become the only class of algorithm practically able to handle the huge amount of available information.

Semantic Web researchers and practitioners have now been using streaming algorithms for more than a decade, and with increasing success. Many SPARQL engines internally use streams for evaluating issued queries. The Description Logic community has also been investigating top-k ontological query answering, and the idea of Stream Reasoning is gaining considerable momentum.
