2nd CfP: WWW2008 Workshop about Linked Data on the Web (LDOW 2008)

From: Chris Bizer <chris@bizer.de>
Date: Wed, 9 Jan 2008 11:52:45 +0100
Message-ID: <001501c852ad$c45b0b60$418d2da0@wrz03715>
To: <semantic-web@w3.org>, "Linking Open Data" <linking-open-data@simile.mit.edu>

Hi all,

just a quick reminder that the submission deadline for the WWW2008 
Linked Data on the Web workshop is approaching quickly, but there is 
still enough time to prepare submissions.

LDOW submission deadline: January 28, 2008

The workshop seeks high-quality submissions on all aspects of Linked 
Data publishing, browsing, crawling and use as well as on emerging 
topics like interlinkage algorithms and Linked Data fusing.

Possible submission formats are full (up to10 pages), short papers (up 
to 5 pages) and demo descriptions (2 pages). See CfP below.

As there has been lots of exiting stuff happening around Linked Data 
over the last year, I'm sure will have a great workshop and I'm 
looking forward to meeting the whole Linked Data community in person 
at WWW2008 again :-)



                International Workshop about:

                    Linked Data on the Web
                            (LDOW 2008)

                             April 22, 2008
                              Beijing, China

                  To be held in conjunction with the
17th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2008)

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
+ 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
+ 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

Papers will be peer-reviewed by three independent reviewers. Accepted
papers will be presented at the workshop and included into the
workshop proceedings.

 Submission deadline: January 28, 2008
 Notification of acceptance: February 21, 2008
 Camera-ready paper submission: March 1, 2008
