*** Call for Papers *** 


8th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2015)


Co-located with 24nd International World Wide Web Conference

18-22 May 2015, Florence, Italy




The Web is continuing to develop from a medium for publishing textual
documents into a medium for sharing structured data. In 2014, the Web of
Linked Data grew to a size of about 1000 datasets with contributions coming
from companies, governments and other public sector bodies such as
libraries, statistical bodies or research institutions. In parallel, the
schema.org initiative has found increasing adoption with large numbers of
websites semantically marking up the content of their HTML pages.


The 8th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2015) aims to stimulate
discussion and further research into the challenges of publishing,
consuming, and integrating structured data from the Web as well as mining
knowledge from the global Web of Data. In addition to its traditional focus
on open web data, the special focus of this year’s LDOW workshop will be the
application of Linked Data technologies in enterprise settings as well as
the potentials of interlinking closed enterprise data with open data from
the Web.
