1st CfP: 3rd Workshop on USAGE ANALYSIS AND THE WEB OF DATA (USEWOD2013) @ ESWC 2013

=============== First Call for Papers =============== 


Workshop at ESWC 2013 - Montpellier, France, 26 or 27 May 2013 

The purpose of this workshop is to investigate new developments concerning
the synergy between semantics and semantic-web technology on the one hand,
and the analysis and mining of usage data on the other hand. Semantics can
be used to enhance the analysis of usage data. Usage data analysis can
enhance semantic resources as well as Semantic Web applications. 

The emerging Web of Data demands a re-evaluation of existing evaluation
techniques: the Linked Data community is recognizing that it needs to move
"beyond triple counts". Usage analysis is a key method for the evaluation of
a datasets and applications. New ways of accessing information enabled by
the Web of Data requires the development or adaptation of algorithms,
methods, and techniques to analyze and interpret the usage of Web data
instead of Web pages. The results can provide fine-grained insights into how
semantic datasets and applications are being accessed and used by both
humans and machines - insights that are needed for optimising the design and
ultimately ensuring the success of semantic resources. 

Data Challenge 
In addition to regular papers, USEWOD2013 includes a data challenge. We will
release a dataset of usage data (server log files) from Linked Open Data
sources. This year's challenge will be even more exciting than the USEWOD
2011 and 2012 challenges, as we add log files from bioportal.bioontology.org
which is one of the most actively used terminology services in the
biomedical domain, and well-known beyond the borders of the Computer Science
research community. This adds a schema level perspective to the USEWOD
dataset, enabling new kinds of analysis. In addition, actual logfiles will
be provided from the two core sources of the USEWOD datasets: the conference
metadata site Semantic Web Dog Food (data.semanticweb.org) and DBpedia
(dbpedia.org). Participants are invited to present interesting analyses,
applications, alignments, etc. for these datasets, and to submit their
findings as a Data Challenge paper. For the best challenge submissions we
will pursue publishing a journal special issue on studies exploiting the
USEWOD dataset.

Topics of interest 
USEWOD2013 welcomes all research that combines usage data and the web of
data, for instance work on: 
* Analysis and mining of usage logs of semantic resources and applications. 
* Inferring semantic information from usage logs. 
* Methods and tools for semantic analysis of usage logs. 
* Representing and enriching usage logs with semantic information. 
* Usage-based evaluation methods and frameworks; gold standards for
evaluation of web applications. 
* Specifics and semantics of logs for content-consumption and
* Using semantics for recommendation, personalization and adaptation. 
* Usage-based recommendation, personalization and adaptation of semantic web
* Exploiting usage logs for semantic search. 
* Data sharing, privacy, and privacy-protecting policies and techniques. 

Important dates 
* Release of Dataset for the USEWOD2013 Challenge: 31 January 2013
* Paper submission deadline: 4 March 2013
* Workshop and Prize for USEWOD Challenge: 26 or 27 May 2013 

The page limit for regular as well as challenge papers is 8 pages, but we
also welcome shorter contributions. Papers should be formatted in ACM format
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). Visit
http://data.semanticweb.org/usewod/2013/ for submission information or
directly go to https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=usewod2013 for
submitting your manuscripts.
