C-SPARQL is an extension of SPARQL to support continuous queries, registered and continuously executed over RDF data streams, considering windows of such streams. Supporting streams in RDF format guarantees interoperability and opens up important applications, in which reasoners can deal with knowledge that evolves over time. We present C-SPARQL by means of(More)
This article defines C-SPARQL, an extension of SPARQL whose distinguishing feature is the support of continuous queries, i.e. queries registered over RDF data streams and then continuously executed. Queries consider windows, i.e. the most recent triples of such streams, observed while data is continuously flowing. Supporting streams in RDF format guarantees(More)
This article presents a technique for Stream Reasoning, consisting in incremental maintenance of materializations of ontological entailments in the presence of streaming information. Previous work, delivered in the context of deductive databases, describes the use of logic programming for the incremental maintenance of such entailments. Our contribution is(More)
While reasoners are year after year scaling up in the classical, time invariant domain of ontological knowledge, reasoning upon rapidly changing information has been neglected or forgotten. On the contrary, processing of data streams has been largely investigated and specialized Stream Database Management Systems exist. In this paper, by coupling reasoners(More)
Top-k queries, i.e. queries returning the top k results ordered by a user-defined scoring function, are an important category of queries. Order is an important property of data that can be exploited to speed up query processing. State-of-the-art SPARQL engines underuse order, and top-k queries are mostly managed with a materialize-then-sort processing(More)
Continuous SPARQL (C-SPARQL) is a new language for continuous queries over streams of RDF data. CSPARQL queries consider windows, i.e., the most recent triples of such streams, observed while data is continuously flowing. Supporting streams in RDF format guarantees interoperability and opens up important applications, in which reasoners can deal with(More)
A combined approach of deductive and inductive reasoning can leverage the clear separation between the evolving (streaming) and static parts of online knowledge at conceptual and technological levels.

This article proposes a model-driven methodology to design and develop semantic Web service applications and their components, described according to the emerging WSMO standard. In particular, we show that business processes and Web engineering models have sufficient expressive power to support the semiautomatic extraction of semantic descriptions (i.e.,(More)
