A Connected World/Web of Things is an emerging area that not only requires development of infrastructure but also deployment of new data services capable of supporting multiple, scalable (cloud-based) and interoperable (cross-systems and cross-domain) applications. I
n the race of designing the Connected World/Web as part of the Future Internet architecture, academia and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry communities have realized that a common problem to be tackled is the interoperability of the data and their availability for providing information services.
Worldwide there is an increasingly focusing on how to evolve communications technologies to enable a Connected World, thus Semantic-enabled Web of Things systems will need to interact and be interconnected for offering the always-promoted everything-connected interoperability paradigm.
The Connected World/Web & Semantic Interoperability workshop provides to developers, scientific researchers, industry experts and general audience interested in the evolution of the Internet of connected things world, the possibility to explore interoperability research challenges and provide a room to expose their research scientific ideas and progress and also explore new trends and opportunities of using semantic web technologies for solving problems and creating new solutions on emerging specialized paradigms like the current Internet of connected Things or simply acknowledge as Internet of Things (IoT).
