The Journal of Web Semantics (http://bit.ly/ElsJWS) seeks submissions
for a special issue on Semantic Statistics to be edited by Jane
Hunter, Armin Haller and Franck Cotton. Topics of interest include the
following.

  * The application of Semantic Web technologies and standards to the
    formalization, publishing, analysis and linking of statistical and
    census datasets and metadata;
  * The application of statistical methods to Linked Data;
  * Vocabularies and ontologies to support the publishing, discovery,
    linking and re-use of statistical metadata (code lists and
    classifications, descriptive metadata, provenance and quality
    information, etc.);
  * Facilitating the re-use of national census datasets via RDF/linked
    open data approaches using vocabularies and ontologies (e.g., RDF
    data cubes);
  * Using statistical approaches (e.g., R, SAS, Stata) to derive
    semantic reasoning, inferencing and classification rules;
  * Representing and inferring the quality of linked data using
    statistically rigorous methods;
  * Comparisons, analytics, alignment and enrichment of statistical
    (census) data and associated concepts using semantics;
  * Improving statistical matching and linkage methods using semantic
    information;
  * Methods for performing data reconciliation, ontology matching,
    instance matching on statistical data;
  * Representing, correlating and analyzing Linked Statistical data.
