4th International Workshop on Methods, Evaluation, Tools and Applications 
for the Creation and Consumption of Structured Data for the e-Society 

Part of the OnTheMove Conferences & Workshops, Rhodes, Greece, 
26-30 October 2015

Website: http://www.onthemove-conferences.org/index.php/meta4es-2015


Supported by IFIP TC 12 WG 12.7 – Social Networking Semantics and Collective 
Intelligence and The Big data roadmap and cross-disciplinarY community for 
addressing socieTal Externalities (BYTE, http://byte-project.eu/) Project

The future e-Society is an e-inclusive society based on the extensive use of 
digital technologies at all levels of interaction between its members. It is a
society that evolves based on knowledge and that empowers individuals by 
creating virtual communities that benefit from social inclusion, access to 
information, enhanced participation, interaction and freedom of expression, 
among other. This leads to radical changes in the dynamics and the interaction 
between its members, determining new economic scenarios.

In this context, the role of the World Wide Web and the information and 
communication technologies (ICTs) in the way people and organizations exchange 
information and interact in the social cyberspace is crucial. Large amounts of 
structured data – Big (Open) Data – are being generated, published and shared 
and a growing number of services and applications emerge from it.

The structured data that are being published – e.g., as RDF on the Web of Data 
– is the result of current popular initiatives adopted by a growing number of 
actors from transversal domains (e.g. governments, city municipalities, etc.). 
Managing such data in order to make sense of it by producing services and 
applications for end-user consumption from government and public body data is 
presently a huge challenge for the research community, going towards a Value 
Web. From a business perspective, the (dynamic) composition of services using 
Big Structured Data stimulates the market.

These initiatives take into account methods for the creation, storage and 
consumption of increasing amounts of structured data and tools that make 
possible their application by end-users to real-life situations, as well as 
their evaluation. The final aim is to lower the barrier between end-users and 
ICT through contributions to the e-Society such as multilingual information, 
information visualization, privacy and trust, rich multimedia retrieval, etc.

The applications must be designed in such a way to help people use their 
knowledge at best and generate new knowledge in return, while keeping intact 
their privacy and confidentiality, whether it is in e-Culture, e-Government, 
e-Democracy, e-Health, or in other areas of the e-Society.

The fourth edition of the Meta4eS workshop aims at bringing together 
researchers, professionals and experts interested to discuss, demonstrate and 
share best practices, ideas and results around the creation, management and, 
particularly, consumption of structured data for the e-Society. The focus will 
be both on scientific and technological research and on industrial use cases 
from various application domains.


This year, Meta4eS has a special focus on cross-disciplinary communities and 
applications associated with Big Data in any possible domain (e.g., Culture, 
Tourism, Smart Manufacturing and Production, Smart City and Digital City, 
Health, Government and Public Sector, Environmental and Geo-Spatial, Ambient 
Assisted Living, Energy, Communications, Social Media) and their impact on the 

Topics related to methods, tools and applications for the Big Data Value Chain 
for the e-Society and their evaluation are of interest. These include (but are 
not limited to) best practices, case studies and tendencies related to:

- Big Data for Cross-disciplinary Communities
- Societal Impacts of Big Data
- Research Roadmapping based on Societal Externalities of Big Data
- Big Data Value Chain in e-Society
- Smart Data
- Data Visualization Tools for e-Society
- Knowledge Creation, Sharing and Retrieval for e-Society
- Knowledge Evolution from Social Processes
- Use of Natural Language Resources in the Creation and Consumption of 
  Structured Data
- Exploiting Multilingual Terminology for Structured Data Consumption
- Best Practices in Consuming Big Structured Data for e-Society
- Lightweight Ontology Creation Methodologies for e-Society
- Ontology in Use for e-Society Applications across Communities and Disciplines
- Semantic Information Processing for better understanding our society
- Service composition for e-Society
- Security, Privacy and Trust in Consuming Big Structured Data
- Evaluation Methodologies
- Usability Testing applied to Big Structured Data in e-Society
- End-user experience with Big (Open) Data
- Research Projects and Live Demos regarding Applications of Big Structured 
  Data for e-Society

Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three members of the workshop 
Program Committee, based on originality, significance, technical soundness and 
clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English and are of two 
types:regular papers and short papers. Papers should not exceed 5,000 words 
(excluding references), and should not exceed 10 pages in the final 
camera-ready format. Short papers, of at most 5 pages in the final camera-ready 
format, may relate to a software tool demonstration, describe a small case 
study, or explore preliminary ideas about a relevant topic. Papers should be 
formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style and submitted in PDF 
format. Author instructions can be found at: 

Paper submission site: 

Papers, demos and posters presenting ongoing studies relevant to the workshop’s 
topics are encouraged for submission.

All accepted workshop papers (regular papers or short papers) will be published 
by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and indexed by ISI, ACM 
Digital Library and DBLP.

Failure to commit to presentation at the workshop automatically excludes a 
paper from the Conference Proceedings.
