Call for papers
The Semantic Web (SW) carries out the vision of a global web of data usable for both human and machines. This web, consisting of inter-connected instance data annotated with possibly expressive ontologies, promises a huge opportunity for web-based applications in many domains. As an open, decentralized, and complex system, the building and development of the Semantic Web bring up a number of new problems to which traditional Artificial Intelligence approaches (Description Logic, Logic Programming, Ontology Reasoning, etc.) are not effective and feasible. More and more researchers from the Semantic Web community are aware of the importance of introducing computational intelligence methodologies and approaches (e.g., including neural network, fuzzy logic or evolutionary computation) to study the complexity of such a huge web of data.
The goal of this special issue is to discuss on current trends in the marriage of the Semantic Web and Computational Intelligence. The specific topics solicited for this special issue will cover all aspects of computational intelligence research, including, but are not limited to:
- Fuzzy logic and uncertainty reasoning for Semantic Web
- Neural network and machine learning for Semantic Web
- Evolutionary computation for Semantic Web
- Hybrid approaches of EC, NN, and fuzzy logic for Semantic Web applications
All papers submitted to this special issue will be rigorously peer-reviewed by experts in this field. To ensure timely publication of this issue, the following timeline will be used for this special issue:
