  Call for Papers: 6th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2013)
     Co-located with 22nd International World Wide Web Conference
                14 May 2013, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
               http://events.linkeddata.org/ldow2013/


Linked Data is a set of best practices for publishing structured data on
the Web which focuses on setting hyperlinks between data items provided
by different web servers. These hyperlinks connect the data from all
servers into a single global data graph - the Web of Linked Data.

The 6th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2013) aims to stimulate
further research into exploiting this global data graph to deliver
transformative applications to large user bases, as well as to mine the
graph for implicit knowledge. Inevitably the challenges associated with
Linked Data range from lower level 'plumbing' issues over large-scale
data processing and mining, to higher level conceptual questions of
value propositions and business models. LDOW2013 will provide a forum
for exposing novel, high quality research and applications in all of
these areas. In addition, by bringing together researchers in the field,
the workshop will further shape the ongoing Linked Data research agenda.
