An ever growing interest and wide adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) andWeb technologies are unleashing 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 currently benefi ting and will continue to benefi t from IoT and Web technologie in a foreseeable future. Similarly, semantic technologies
have proven their e ectiveness in various domains and a few among multiple challenges which semantic Web technologies are addressing are to (i) mitigate heterogeneity by providing semantic inter-operability, (ii) facilitate easy integration of data application, (iii) deduce and extract new knowledge to build applications providing smart solutions,
and (iv) facilitate inter-operability among various data processes including representation, management and storage of data.
In this tutorial, our focus will be on the combination of Web technologies, Semantic Web, and IoT technologies and we will present to our audience that how a merger of these technologies is leading towards an evolution from IoT to Web of Things (WoT) to Semantic Web of Things. This tutorial will introduce the basics of Internet of Things, Web of Things and Semantic Web and will demonstrate tools and techniques designed to enable the rapid development of semantics-based Web of Things applications. One key aspect of this tutorial is to familarize its audience with the open source tools designed by di erent semantic Web, IoT and WoT based projects and provide the audience a rich hands-on experience to use these tools and build smart applications
with minimal e orts. Thus, reducing the learning curve at its maximum. We will showcase real-world use case scenarios which are designed using semantically-enabled
WoT frameworks (e.g. CityPulse, FIESTA-IoT, M3).
