LDAC2017 – Linked Data in Architecture and Construction Workshop 13 – 15 Nov 18


This year's LDAC workshop takes place at the Univeristy of Burgundy, in Dijon (France). In this workshop, the main aim is to evaluate the current status of the different available ontologies to capture building data. This includes:

  • the ifcOWL ontology (buildingSMART)
  • the Building Topology Ontology (BOT - W3C)
  • the PRODUCT ontology (W3C)
  • geospatial ontologies
  • infrastructure ontologies (oil&gas, roads, tunnels, rail)
  • HVAC ontologies
  • building automation ontologies (BACS, DogOnt, SAREF)
  • semantic sensor ontologies (SSN)

Aside the development and usage of these ontologies, the purpose of the LDAC workshop is to also investigate ways in which the ontology-based data can be combined into a complete and holistic set of available building data. Finally, and most importantly, a number of industrial cases are invited, aiming to give an indication of the effect of these ontologies on every day practice in managing building data (design, construction, facility management, smart cities). The following topics are hereby warmly welcomed:

  • linking building data to product data, GIS data and sensor data
  • decentralised publication of models
  • interoperability
  • ontology mapping and instance mapping
  • building data localization
  • semantic web services
  • reasoning
  • semantic query systems and approaches
  • visualization frameworks
  • open data publication
