Best Student Paper Award at ICEIS‘21

Johannes Lipp, Siyabend Sakik, Moritz Kröger and Stefan Decker received the Best Student Paper Award at the 23rd International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS) for their paper “LISSU: Integrating Semantic Web Concepts into SOA Frameworks”. The ICEIS’21 took place from 26-28.04.2021 and was organized as a video conference.


In recent years, microservice-based architectures have become the de-facto standard for cloud-native applications and enable modular and scalable systems. The lack of communication standards however complicates reliable information exchange. While syntactic checks like datatypes or ranges are mostly solved nowadays, semantic mismatches (e.g., different units) are still problematic. Semantic Web Services and their derivatives tackle this challenge but are mostly too ambitious for practical use. In this paper, we propose Lightweight Semantic Web Services for Units (LISSU) to support Semantic Web experts in their collaboration with domain experts. LISSU allows developers specify semantics for their services via URI ontology references, and automatically validates these before initiating communication. It automatically corrects unit mismatches via conversions whenever possible. A real-world demonstrator setup in the manufacturing domain proves that LISSU leads to a more predictable communication.
