A huge volume of linked data has been published on the Web, yet is not processable by Complex Event Processing (CEP) or Event Stream Processing (ESP) engines. This paper presents a frame-work to bridge this gap, under which linked data are first translated into events conforming to a lightweight ontology, and then fed to CEP engines. The event processing results will also be published back onto the Web of data. In this way, CEP engines are connected to the Web of data, and the ontological reasoning is integrated with event processing. Finally, the implementation method and a case study of the framework are presented.
