CALL FOR PAPERS
-----------------------

LINKED DATA ON THE WEB (LDOW2009)
Workshop at WWW2009, April 2009, Madrid, Spain

Submission Deadline: February 7th 2009

http://events.linkeddata.org/ldow2009/

--------------------
OVERVIEW
--------------------

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 an increasing number of datasets according to the principles of
Linked Data. Today, this emerging Web of Data includes data sets as
extensive and diverse as DBpedia, Geonames, US Census, EuroStat,
MusicBrainz, BBC Programmes, Flickr, DBLP, PubMed, UniProt, FOAF,
SIOC, OpenCyc, UMBEL and Yago. The availability of these and many
other data sets has paved the way for an increasing number of
applications that build on Linked Data, support services designed to
reduce the complexity of integrating heterogeneous data from
distributed sources, as well as new business opportunities for
start-up companies in this space.

Building on the success of last year's LDOW workshop at WWW2008 in
Beijing, the LDOW2009 workshop aims to provide a forum for presenting
the latest research on Linked Data and drive forward the research
agenda in this area. While last year's workshop focused on the
publication of Linked Data, this year's workshop will focus on Linked
Data application architectures, linking algorithms and Web data
fusion.

--------------------
TOPICS OF INTEREST
--------------------

Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to,
the following:

* Data Linking and Fusion
    o linking algorithms and heuristics, identity resolution
    o Web data integration and data fusion
    o evaluating quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data

* Linked Data Application Architectures
    o crawling, caching and querying Linked Data on the Web;
optimizations, performance
    o Linked Data browsers, search engines
    o applications that exploit distributed Web datasets

* Data Publishing
    o tools for publishing large data sources as Linked Data on the
Web (e.g. relational databases, XML repositories)
    o embedding data into classic Web documents (e.g. GRDDL, RDFa, Microformats)
    o licensing and provenance tracking issues in Linked Data publishing
    o business models for Linked Data publishing and consumption

--------------------
SUBMISSIONS
--------------------

We seek three kinds of submissions:

* Full technical papers: up to 10 pages in ACM format
* Short technical and position papers: up to 5 pages in ACM format
* Demo description: up to 2 pages in ACM format

Submissions must be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings
Templates. Submissions will be peer reviewed by three independent
reviewers. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and
included in the workshop proceedings.

Proceedings will be published online at CEUR-WS.
