Call for Papers
4th International Workshop on Consuming Linked Data (COLD2013)
2013 Special Theme: Towards Industrial Linked Data Ecosystems

http://db.uwaterloo.ca/cold2013/

Co-located with:
12th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2013)
Sydney, Australia

====================================================================

===================
ABSTRACT
===================

The quantity of published Linked Data continues to increase. However, 
applications that exploit Linked Data are not yet widespread. Reasons 
may include a lack of suitable solutions for a number of open problems. 
The diversity and dynamics of LOD sources have brought new challenges in 
seamless data integration, dynamic discovery, provenance tracking, and 
quality assessment at the Web scale. Addressing these issues requires 
joint community efforts from both LOD provision and consumption 
perspectives, including the development and investigation of concepts 
that can lead towards the realisation of a sustainable Linked Data 
ecosystem. The objective of this workshop is to provide a focused venue 
for academic and industrial discussions on concepts, algorithms, 
infrastructure and tools (including systematic analysis and rigorous 
evaluation) that help to exploit Linked Data (and not just to produce it).

This years' edition of COLD is in association with Fujitsu and has a 
special theme, "Towards Industrial Linked Data Ecosystems", where we 
particularly encourage submissions that relate to applying Linked Data 
methodologies for industrial settings. However, papers on all aspects of 
consuming Linked Data are solicited.

For further information about the workshop, please contact the workshop 
chairs at cold.org.ws@googlemail.com

===================
TOPICS OF INTEREST
===================

Relevant topics for COLD 2013 include but are not limited to:

* Live Linked Data (i.e., algorithms and applications that make use of
Linked Data at runtime)
* Architectures for consuming Linked Data (e.g., Dataspaces, Cloud, NoSQL)
* Handling additional web data (e.g., microformats, microdata,
schema.org, APIs, JSON, Open Graph Protocol, Twitter Cards...)
* Web scale data management (indexing, crawling, etc.)
* Query processing over multiple linked datasets and/or endpoints
* Search on the Web of Data
* Auto-discovery of URIs and data
* Caching and replication techniques
* Dataset dynamics
* Reasoning over Linked Data from multiple sources
* Information quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data
* User interface research for interaction with the Web of Data
* Integration of Linked Data sources
* Languages for navigating and consuming Linked Data
* Linked Data summarisation, data-guides, schema learning
* Sustainable Linked Data ecosystems for industrial/commercial settings

===================
IMPORTANT DATES
===================

Abstract deadline:                      Jul. 12
Full paper deadline:                    Jul. 19 (extended)
Final decision and notification:        Aug. 09
Camera ready:                           Aug. 25

===================
SUBMISSIONS
===================

We seek novel technical research papers in the context of consuming
Linked Data with a length of up to 12 pages. Deadlines are 23:59 
Hawaiian time. Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the 
Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science 
(LNCS). Please submit your paper via EasyChair at 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cold2013

Submissions that do not comply with the formatting of LNCS or that 
exceed the page limit will be rejected without review. The author list 
does not need to be anonymised, as we do not have a double-blind review 
process in place. Submissions will be peer reviewed by three independent 
reviewers. Accepted papers have to be presented at the workshop to be 
published in the proceedings. Proceedings will be published online at 
CEUR-WS. We also encourage supplementary web-based material (e.g., 
XHTML+RDFa versions of papers) to be submitted alongside PDFs. This 
material will be published on the workshop website.
