Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2011) Workshop at WWW2011


     28th or 29th March, 2011, Hyderabad, India



The Web has developed into a global information space consisting not just of
linked documents, but also of linked data. In 2010, we have seen significant
growth in the size of the Web of Data, as well as in the number of
communities contributing to its creation. In addition, there is intensive
work on applications that consume Linked Data from the Web.

The LDOW2011 workshop in Hyderabad follows the LDOW2008 workshop in Beijing,
the LDOW2009 workshop in Madrid, and the LDOW2010 workshop in Raleigh. As
with the previous workshops, LDOW2011 is open to covering all topics related
to Linked Data publication and consumption, including principled research in
the areas of user interfaces for the Web of Data as well as on issues of
quality, trust and provenance in Linked Data. We also expect to see a number
of submissions related to current areas of high Linked Data activity, such
as government transparency, life sciences and the media industry. The goal
of this workshop is to provide a forum for exposing high quality, novel
research and applications in these (and related) areas. In addition, by
bringing together researchers in this field, we expect the event to further
shape the ongoing Linked Data research agenda.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to, the

1. Foundations of Linked Data

    * dataset dynamics and synchronisation
    * analyzing and profiling the Web of Data

2. Data Linking and Fusion

    * entity consolidation and linking algorithms
    * Web-based data integration and data fusion
    * performance and scalability of integration architectures

3. Write-enabling the Web of Data

    * authorisation mechanisms for Linked Datasets (WebACL, etc.)
    * enabling write-access to legacy data sources (Google APIs, Flickr API,

4. Data Publishing

    * publishing legacy data sources as Linked Data on the Web
