LocWeb 2016, the sixth in its series, continues a successful workshop series at the intersection of location-based services and Web architecture. Its focus lies in Web-scale services and systems facilitating location-aware information access. The location topic is seen as a cross-cutting issue equally concerning information access, semantics and standards, and Web-scale systems and services. LocWeb is an integrated venue where the location aspect can be discussed in depth with an interested community. We aim for a highly interactive, collaborative full day workshop with ample room for discussion and demos that will explore and advance the geospatial topic.
New application areas for Web architecture, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Web of Things (WoT), will lead to increasingly rich and large sets of applications for which location is highly relevant. We predict that location will be of increasing importance in Web-based designs, and that this subject will continue to provide challenging research questions.
The workshop report has now been published in SIGIR Forum vol.50(2):
