Call for Papers - Linking Data (Semantic Data) Track of the 24th ACM 
Hypertext and Social Media Conference

1-3 May 2012, Paris, France

****************************************

*** The Conference

The ACM Hypertext and Social Media conference is a premium venue for 
high quality peer-reviewed research on hypertext theory, systems and 
applications. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext 
research including social media, semantic web, dynamic and computed 
hypertext and hypermedia as well as narrative systems and applications. 
The ACM Hypertext and Social Media 2013 conference will focus on 
exploring, studying and shaping relationships between three important 
dimensions of links in hypertextual systems and the World Wide Web: 
people, data, and documents.

In 2013, the conference is taking place as part of the First ACM 
European Computing Research Congress (ECRC 2013), which is co-located 
with the ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 
(CHI 2013).

*** The Linking Data Track

Linking data - and not just conventional Web documents - is one of the 
core building blocks of the Semantic Web. As semantic standards and 
technologies become mainstream - most prominently through developments 
such as Google's Knowledge Graph, Facebook's Open Graph Protocol, the 
schema.org initiative, and the Linked Open Data Cloud community movement 
- we experience a rapid growth in the amount, quality, and variety of 
usage scenarios for linked data sets. More and more organizations in the 
public and private domains are not just publishing their data according 
to Linked Data principles, but use the resulting Web-wide wealth of 
resources, rich in meaning and structure, to expand the functionality of 
their information-intensive applications.

The track focuses on research addressing challenges and opportunities 
associated with realizing and using Web-scale, distributed semantic data 
graphs, covering all aspects of the linked data management life cycle, 
including the creation of new linked Data, interlinking, entity 
extraction, enrichment of traditional Web content with semantic 
annotations, combinations of linked and other types of data, quality 
analysis, evolution and dynamics, and consumption through query 
processing and mining.

*** Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Publication of linked data
Data set dynamics and evolution
Data interlinking
Data set curation
Semantic annotation and markup
Algorithms for linking textual and data sources and entities
Semantic social network representation and analysis
Automatic and socially inspired algorithms for linked data management
Scalability of graph-based algorithms and infrastructures
Data mining for linked data
User interfaces and user/social interactions for linked data
Provenance, privacy, and rights management for linked data

*** Important Dates

Abstract deadline: December 13, 2012
Full and short paper submission deadline: December 18, 2012
Notification: January 30, 2013
Camera-ready version due: February 17, 2013

*** Submissions

Papers must report new results substantiated by experimentation, 
simulation, analysis, or application. Authors are invited to submit 
papers presenting original, not previously published works. Submission 
categories may include regular research papers (max 10 pages) discussing 
mature work, and short papers (max 5 pages) describing preliminary 
results of on-going work or novel thought-provoking ideas.

All submissions should be formatted according to the official ACM SIG 
proceedings template and submitted via EasyChair. The review process 
will not be blind, therefore it is not necessary for submissions to be 
anonymized. Please be sure to submit keywords via EasyChair. The 
submission system is available at 
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ht2013 .

Accepted papers will appear in the Hypertext 2013 Conference Proceedings 
that will be published by ACM and additionally be made available through 
the ACM Digital Library.
