Call for Papers
5th International Workshop on Consuming Linked Data (COLD2014)
co-located with
13th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2014)
Riva del Garda, Italy

The quantity of published Linked Data continues to increase. However,
applications that consume Linked Data are not yet widespread. Reasons may
include a lack of suitable methods for a number of open problems, including
the seamless integration of Linked Data from multiple sources, dynamic
discovery of available data and data sources, provenance and information
quality assessment, application development environments, and appropriate
end user interfaces. Addressing these issues requires well- founded
research, including the development and investigation of concepts that can
be applied in systems which consume Linked Data from the Web. Our main
objective is to provide a venue for scientific discourse (including
systematic analysis and rigorous evaluation) of concepts, algorithms and
approaches for consuming Linked Data.

For further information about the workshop, please contact the workshops
chairs at cold.org.ws@googlemail.com


While previous editions of the workshop have attracted a number of
submissions that addressed topics related to (RDF and) Linked Data
management in general, with COLD2014 we aim to steer the workshop back
towards the core goals. To this end, we explicitly seek submissions that
address research problems related to at least one of the following two
aspects of Linked Data consumption:

* Makes use of Linked Data principles, including dereferencing
* Involves direct use of multiple, real-world Linked Datasets


In the context of these two aspects of Linked Data consumption, relevant
topics for COLD 2014 include but are not limited to:

* Live Linked Data (i.e., algorithms and applications that make use of
Linked Data at runtime)
* Architectures for consuming Linked Data (e.g., Dataspaces, Cloud, NoSQL)
* Integration of Linked Data sources (e.g., entity resolution, sameas,
vocabulary mapping, etc.)
* Handling additional Web data (e.g., Deep Web, APIs, Microdata, JSON,
Atom, tables, etc.)
* Web-scale data management (e.g., crawling, indexing, parallel processing,
* Novel languages for navigating and consuming Linked Data (e.g., nSPARQL,
NautiLOD, etc)
* Linked Data summarization, guides and schema learning
* Query processing over multiple Linked Datasets
* Search over the Web of Linked Data
* Auto-discovery of URIs and data
* Caching and replication
* Dataset dynamics
* Reasoning on Linked Data from multiple sources
* Information quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data
* User-interface research for interacting with the Web of Linked Data


Abstract deadline extension: July 7
Paper deadline extension: July 14
Final decision and notification: July 30
Camera ready: August 20


We seek novel technical research papers in the context of consuming Linked
Data with a length of up to 12 pages. Paper submissions must be formatted
in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS). Please submit your paper via EasyChair at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cold2014 Submissions that do not
comply with the formatting of LNCS or that exceed the page limit will be
rejected without review. The author list does not need to be anonymized, as
we do not have a double-blind review process in place. Submissions will be
peer reviewed by three independent reviewers. Accepted papers have to be
presented at the workshop to be published in the proceedings. Proceedings
will be published online at CEUR-WS. We also encourage supplementary
web-based material (e.g., XHTML+RDFa versions of papers) to be submitted
alongside PDFs. This material will be published on the workshop website.
