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)
Continuous SPARQL (C-SPARQL) is proposed as new language for continuous queries over streams of RDF data. It covers a gap in the Semantic Web abstractions which is needed for many emerging applications, including our focus on Urban Computing. In this domain, sensor-based information on roads must be processed to deduce localized traffic conditions and then(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)

Search Computing (SeCo) is a project funded by the European Research Council (ERC). It focuses on building the answers to complex search queries like “Where can I attend an interesting conference in my field close to a sunny beach?” by interacting with a constellation of cooperating search services, using ranking and joining of results as the dominant(More)
Data Streams unbounded sequences of time-varying data elements are pervasive. They occur in a variety of modern applications including the Web where blogs, feeds, and microblogs are increasingly adopted to distribute and present information in real-time streams. We foresee the need for languages, tools and methodologies for representing, managing and(More)
Social semantic data are becoming a reality, but apparently their streaming nature has been ignored so far. Streams, being unbounded sequences of time-varying data elements, should not be treated as persistent data to be stored “forever” and queried on demand, but rather as transient data to be consumed on the fly by queries which are registered once and(More)
The capability of UML profiles to serve as annotation mechanism has been recognized in both industry and research. Today’s modeling tools offer profiles specific to platforms, such as Java, as they facilitate model-based engineering approaches. However, the set of available profiles is considerably smaller compared to the number of existing Java libraries(More)
