Just a quick clarification... If you would like to contact the workshop organisers, please send mail to ldow2008[at]events.linkeddata.org, rather than the address previously quoted.

Thanks,

Tom.

> 
> 1.    Objectives
> 
> The Web is increasingly understood as a global information space 
> consisting not just of linked documents, but also of Linked 
> Data. More 
> than just a vision, the Web of Data has been brought into 
> being by the 
> maturing of the Semantic Web technology stack, and by the publication 
> of large datasets according to the principles of Linked Data. During 
> 2007, the size of the Web of Data has grown to several billion RDF 
> triples which are served by a network of interlinked data sources and 
> which cover domains such as geographic information, people, 
> companies, 
> online communities, films, music, books and scientific publications. 
> In addition to publishing and interlinking datasets, there is also 
> ongoing work on Linked Data browsers, Linked Data crawlers, Web of 
> Data search engines and other applications that consume Linked Data 
> from the Web.
> 
> The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for the Linked Data 
> community, in which participants can:
> 
> + present and discuss approaches to publishing Linked Data on 
> the Web; 
> + showcase innovative applications that consume Linked Data; 
> shape the 
> + agenda and identify upcoming research issues for the next
> development stage of the Web of Data.
> 
> 
> 2. Topics of Interest
> 
> Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
> 
> + publishing large data sources as Linked Data on the Web
>    (e.g. publishing tools and wrappers, experience from practical 
> projects)
> + interlinking data on the Web
>    (e.g. linkage heuristics, similarity measures)
> + embedding data into classic Web documents
>    (e.g. GRDDL, RDFa, microformats)
> + crawling and caching Web data
> + smushing and integrating data from different sources
> + querying distributed data on the Web
> + Linked Data browsers
> + Linked Data search engines
> + applications that exploit Linked Data from the Web 
> characterizing and 
> + measuring the Web of Data assessing the quality and 
> trustworthiness of 
> + Web data licensing issues in publishing Linked Data
> 
> 
> 3. Submissions
> 
> We seek three kinds of submissions:
> 
> + Full technical papers - should not exceed ten pages in 
> length. Short 
> + technical papers and position papers - are expected up to 5
> pages.
> + Demo descriptions - 2 page description of the application, ideally
> accompanied with a link to an online demo.
> 
> Submissions must be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings 
> Templates.
> Papers will be peer-reviewed by three independent reviewers. Accepted 
> papers will be presented at the workshop and included into the 
> workshop proceedings.
