An ever growing interest and wide adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies unleash a true potential of designing a broad range of high-quality consumer applications. Smart cities, smart buildings, and e-health are among various application domains which are benefited from IoT technologies. Diversity, dynamicity and heterogeneity of devices, networks and data are among major challenges hindering the wide adoption of IoT technologies. Semantic technologies have been effectively used
in various domains, particularly, to address the heterogeneity challenge to (i) ease the interconnection of such data, (ii) deduce new knowledge to build smart applications and (iii) maintain interoperability at data processing, management and storage. We will familiarize our audience with the "evolution" of IoT called Web of things (WoT) which is based on existing Web standards. Combining Semantic Web and Web of Things
technologies pave the way for the Semantic Web of Things. This tutorial will introduce the basics of Internet of Things and Web of Things in order to enable the rapid development of semantics-based Web of Things applications. Towards that goal, the tutorial will also demonstrate how semantic web technologies are employed for semantic annotation and reasoning on data to build interoperable IoT/WoT applications. One key aspect is helping IoT developers in dealing with semantic web technologies
by reducing the learning curve as much as possible. We will showcase realworld use case scenarios which are designed using semantically enabled IoT frameworks (e.g. CityPulse, FIESTA-IoT).
