Workshop on Semantic Statistics for Social, Behavioural, and Economic Sciences: Leveraging the DDI Model for the Linked Data Web

September 12-16, 2011
Leibniz Center for Informatics, Schloss Dagstuhl, Wadern, Germany

OVERVIEW
This workshop will examine the metadata model of the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) used in the Social, Behavioural, and Economic (SBE) sciences, and design an implementation of that model using the Semantic Web standards (RDF, OWL, etc.). Invited participants will represent the user community (data librarians, archivists, researchers, and data producers), DDI experts, and experts in the Semantic Web technologies and standards. The goal of the workshop is to develop a best practice for the publication of microdata and related metadata into the Linked Data Web, which might be put forward as a standard for use with data in this domain for dissemination on the Web.

COURSE INSTRUCTORS
Richard Cyganiak (DERI - Digital Enterprise Research Institute, Galway, Ireland)
Arofan Gregory (ODaF - Open Data Foundation, Tucson, Arizona, USA)
Wendy L. Thomas (MPC - Minnesota Population Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA)
Joachim Wackerow (GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences, Mannheim, Germany)
