>  CHAPTER PROPOSALS INVITED FROM RESEARCHERS AND PRACTITIONERS IN DATA
> MANAGEMENT AND WEB INFORMATION SYSTEMS
> 1st Proposal Submission Deadline: January 31, 2010
> Full Chapter Submission Deadline: April 15, 2010
>
> Linking Enterprise Data
>
> A book edited by David Wood, Eric Miller and Uche Ogbuji, Zepheira, USA
>
> To be published by Springer Science+Business Media
>
> I.  Introduction
>
> Linking Enterprise Data is the application of Semantic Web architecture
> principles to real-world information management issues faced by commercial,
> not-for-profit and government enterprises.  The term LED is a play on
> Linking Open Data (LOD), a community project started by the World Wide Web
> Consortium's Semantic Web Education and Outreach Interest Group aimed at
> exposing data sets to the Web in standard formats and actively relating them
> to one another with hyperlinks.
>
> Enterprise data is growing at a much faster rate than traditional
> technologies allow.  The World Wide Web is the only information system we
> know that scales to the degree that it does and is robust to both changes
> and failure of components. Most software does not work nearly as well as the
> Web does.  Applying the Web's architectural principles (not necessarily the
> public World Wide Web itself) for enterprise problems may be the only way to
> effectively address the current and future information glut. Challenges
> remain, however, because the use of distributed architectures requires
> enterprises to give up the central control and planning traditionally
> applied by IT departments.
>
> II.  Objective of the Book
>
> This book aims to provide practical approaches to addressing common
> information management issues by the application of Semantic Web and Linked
> Data research to production environments.  The approaches taken are based on
> international standards. The book is to be written and edited by leaders in
> Semantic Web and Linked Data research and standards development and early
> adopters of Semantic Web and Linked Data standards and techniques.
>
> III.  Target Audience
>
> This book is meant for Semantic Web researchers and academicians, and CTOs,
> CIOs, enterprise architects, project managers and application developers in
> commercial, not-for-profit and government organizations concerned with
> scalability, flexibility and robustness of information management systems.
>  Not-for-profit organizations specifically include the library and museum
> communities.
>
> Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
> - Business, technical and social values of applying Web architecture to
> enterprise content, such as the means by which deployment agility,
> resilience and reuse of data may be accomplished
> - Building of social (human-centered) communities to curate distributed
> data
> - Enterprise infrastructure for Linking Enterprise Data
> - Persistent Identifiers for the Web, life sciences, libraries and memory
> organizations
> - Linking the government cloud
> - Applications of Linked Data to enterprises, such as drug discovery,
> clinical information, organizational learning or curation of/access to
> distributed information
> - Publishing large-scale Linked Data
>
> IV.  Publisher
>
> This book is scheduled for publication by Springer Science+Business Media.
> For additional information regarding the publisher, please visit
> http://www.springer.com. This publication is scheduled to be released in
> 2011.
