FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS FOR 1st WORKSHOP ON SOCIAL SEMANTICS FOR LINKED  
DATA ON THE WEB
http://semanticweb.org/wiki/SSLD2009

Motivations

The Web is considered as the most important information space in our  
modern society. Human beings have been trying to reflect their  
interests and life styles on the Web, but the participation in  
contributing social content has to date been limited. Web 2.0 plays an  
important role in facilitating the participation by providing an  
architectural platform to enable linking data in various formats from  
various sources. However, the further the data on a system is linked,  
the more difficult it becomes to interlink data across heterogeneous  
sources. This poses critical problems with connecting data across  
different systems.

Social Semantics are believed to lend a hand with overcoming this  
situation. In general, the term Social Semantics refers to a  
combination of social and semantic technologies. Social Semantic  
technologies provide solutions towards bridging the gap between the  
Semantic Web and Web 2.0.

The goal of this half-day workshop is to provide a platform for  
discussing research topics underlying the concepts of Social Semantics  
for Linked Data. Participants can look forward to:

     * discussing approaches to facilitate socially-aware on the Web;
     * presenting novel applications that consume Web data;
     * performing critical research and present practical issues  
associated with Social Data and Data Portability of the Web of Data.

By bringing together representatives of academia and industry, the  
workshop is also a means for identifying new research problems and  
disseminating results of the research and practice.

The aim of this workshop is to cover all aspects that relate to  
research and practical issues of Social Semantics and Linked Data.  
Topics of interest include:

     * Linked Data
     * Data Portability
     * Applications that publish, interlink, and query the Web of Data
     * Social Tagging and Folksonomies
     * Social Networks
     * Collective Intelligence
     * Web 2.0
     * Semantic Web
     * Semantic wikis
     * Trust and privacy in social applications
