Special issue on "Uncertainty Reasoning for the Web"
International Journal of Approximate Reasoning

Guest Editors:


Effective methods for reasoning under uncertainty are vital for realizing many aspects of the World Wide Web, Semantic Web, and uses of Linked Data (WWW-SW-LD), but the ability of current-generation technology to handle uncertainty remains extremely limited. Thus, there is a continuing demand for uncertainty reasoning technologies among WWW-SW-LD researchers and developers.

The objective of this special issue is to collect and report on recent high quality research that targets problems related to uncertainty in the context of the World Wide Web, the Semantic Web or Linked Data. High quality contributions addressing related theoretical and/or practical aspects are expected.

This special issue is a following-up of the 2014-2016 editions of the International Workshop on Uncertainty Reasoning for the Semantic Web (URSW), co-located on an annual basis with the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC). Although participants of this workshop are particularly invited to submit extended and revised versions of accepted workshop papers, this Call for Papers is open to everyone interested in the topic of this special issue.

This special issue would be a continuation of three postproceedings LNCS volumes:

Topics of interest

We are looking for submissions addressing topics relevant to the general subject of uncertainty in the context of the World Wide Web (WWW), the Semantic Web (SW) or Linked Data (LD), including fuzzy theory, probability theory, and other approaches. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Submission Procedure

All submitted manuscripts will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contribution to the field, as well as their suitability to the special issue and their overall quality. Manuscripts must describe original research which neither has been published nor is currently under review in other journals or conferences. Guest editors will make an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all submissions.

Papers are to be uploaded at the IJAR submission web site, selecting "Uncertainty Reasoning for the Web", when reaching the "Article Type" step in the submission process.
