Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2011) Workshop at WWW2011






Workshop date: March 29th, 2011, Hyderabad, India


Submission deadline: 8th February, 2011






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
the previous workshops, LDOW2011 is open to cover all topics related to
Linked Data publication as well as 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.
