Best In-Use Paper at ISWC 2014

A paper about the scalable extension of STAR-CITY (the predictive reasoning component of SIMPLI-CITY) to Bologna, Miami and Rio has been awarded the best In-Use Paper at the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2014), which took place in Riva del Garda, Italy, 19-23 October 2014.

Abstract of the award-winning paper:

F. Lecue, R. Tucker, S. Tallevi-Diotallevi, G. Liguori, M. Borioni, R. Nair, Y. Gfoukas, A. Rademaker, L. Barbosa, “Semantic Traffic Diagnosis with STAR-CITY: Architecture and Lessons Learned from Deployment in Dublin, Bologna, Miami and Rio”, in the 13th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2014), Trento, Italy, 2014, p. 292-307.

STAR-CITY is a system supporting Semantic road Traffic Ana-lytics and Reasoning for CITY. The system has been designed (i) to provide insight on historical and real-time traffic conditions, and (ii) to support efficient urban planning by integrating (human and machine-based) sensor data using variety of formats, velocities and volumes. Initially deployed and experimented in Dublin City (Ireland), the system and its architecture have been strongly limited by its flexibility and scalability to other cities. This paper describes its limitations and presents the “any-city” architecture of STAR-CITY together with its semantic configuration for flexible and scalable deployment in any city. This paper also strongly focuses on lessons learnt from its deployment and experimentation in Dublin (Ireland), Bologna (Italy), Miami (USA) and Rio (Brazil).
