Stream Reasoning Workshop 2021

After the successful Stream Reasoning workshops in Vienna, Berlin, Zürich, and Linköping in previous years, the fifth edition of the workshop will be held in Milan, Italy, on October 4-6 2021.

The workshop is invitation-only and focuses on strengthening our growing community by sharing different perspectives, challenges, and experiences obtained by working with expressive yet efficient decision-making over rapidly changing data.

For Stream Reasoning to grow as a research area, it is very valuable to bring together these different views and goals, to exchange ideas in a relaxed and collaborative atmosphere. Therefore, this year we welcome submissions describing ideas, experiments, and application visions related to data and event streams. We encourage short position and short demo papers not exceeding 4 pages as well as longer technical papers not exceeding 12 pages.

Selected technical papers will be encouraged for submission to a special issue of the Journal of Web Semantics on Stream Reasoning, whose call deadline will follow the workshop. The submissions to the special issue will undergo a usual round of review to ensure that they meet journal requirements and standards.

Submissions should be formatted according to the Lecture Notes in Computer Science guidelines for proceedings. Papers should be submitted in PDF format, but other formats are welcome upon agreement (please contact the chairs in case). All submissions will be done electronically via the EasyChair Web submission system.

All papers accepted to the workshop will be published in informal proceedings and on the workshop website.
