1st Workshop on Knowledge Injection into and Extraction from Linked Data
==========================================================================

* Prof. Martin Hepp will give a keynote to the workshop:
Ontology Engineering for Linked Data: What Makes For A Good Ontology?


The first workshop on knowledge injection into and extraction from 
linked data is a co-located event with EKAW 2010 
<http://ekaw2010.inesc-id.pt/>, held in Lisbon (Portugal) 
<http://ekaw2010.inesc-id.pt/conference-venue.html> on October 2010.

Notice: the exact date of the workshop is still to be fixed. It will be 
either October 11th or 15th.

Motivation and objectives

The first workshop on Knowledge Injection to and Extraction from Linked 
Data (KIELD2010 at EKAW 2010 <http://ekaw2010.inesc-id.pt/>) will gather 
three prominent sub-communities of Knowledge Engineering and Management: 
Knowledge Modelling, Knowledge Discovery and Linked Data. The rapid 
growth of the Linked Data cloud, in parallel with on-the-fly design of 
relevant vocabularies, presents new opportunities for traditional 
research disciplines.

Most notably:

    * Although the popular vocabularies reflect today needs, they
      sometimes lack deeper ontological reflections. State-of-the-art
      knowledge modelling, especially the pattern-based ontology design
      principles, could help connect Linked Data vocabularies to more
      sophisticated models, while keeping themselves simple.
      Furthermore, collaborative ontology design methodologies could
      find their way to the process of vocabulary design, currently
      undertaken by VoCamp communities and stand-alone groups.
    * The linked data themselves represent a large and growing resource
      woven from numerous components. Empirical knowledge discovery in
      linked data, carried out by machine learning and data mining
      algorithms, could reveal interesting patterns on frequently used
      structures, which could then be fuelled back to the vocabulary
      design. Existing techniques for mining network-structured data,
      such as graph databases or web links, are likely to require
      adaptation so as to take account of links that are typed according
      to semantically rich and heterogeneous schemata.

Aside the EKAW 2010 <http://ekaw2010.inesc-id.pt/> conference itself, 
the workshop is informally associated with the series of WOP workshops - 
Workshops on Ontology Patterns 
<http://ontologydesignpatterns.org/wiki/WOP:2009>. Participants of the 
previous successful WOP (1st edition at ISWC2009) are encouraged to 
submit to KIELD 2010.

By this interdisciplinary nature KIELD2010 aims at being of high 
interest for both researchers and practitioners of all three areas 
mentioned above. Furthermore, it will give space to ongoing and 
pioneering research activities, which would still be too preliminary as 
conference publications, although extremely hot as topics in the 
semantic technology field.

Key topics

The workshop welcomes research, application, and position papers on the 
following topics (non-exclusive):

Ontology engineering for Linked Data

    * Methodologies
    * Ontology patterns extraction
    * Ontology patterns identification and discovery
    * Pattern-based triplification
    * Anti-patterns or worst practices

Data mining from Linked Data

    * Entity recognition
    * Link prediction
    * Pattern mining
    * Sequential patterns
    * Rule mining

Linked Data in use

    * Domain applications based-on linked data
    * Linked data exploitation
    * Interaction with linked data

Paper Submission

Two types of submissions will be accepted: full papers presenting recent 
research results, and position papers presenting either research in 
progress or key issues in the scientific discussion.

All submissions have to be formatted according to the Springer LNCS 
format, in PDF. Full papers are limited to 12 pages and position papers 
to 6 pages.

All submissions must be performed through KIELD EasyChair 
<http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kield2010>.

The accepted papers will be published in workshop notes, under CEUR. (to 
be confirmed)
