                        Call for Papers

          1st Workshop on Personal Semantic Data: PSD 2010

         http://semanticweb.org/wiki/Personal_Semantic_Data

                  co-located with EKAW 2010

             11th - 15th October, Lisbon, Portugal


Personal Semantic Data is scattered over several media, and while
semantic technologies are already successfully deployed on the Web as
well on the desktop, data integration is not always straightforward.
The transition from the desktop to a distributed system for Personal
Information Management (PIM) raises new challenges which need to be
addressed. These challenges overlap areas related to human-computer
interaction, privacy and security, information extraction, retrieval
and matching.

This workshop will bring together academics and industrial
practitioners with the goal of fostering cross-domain collaborations
to further advance the use of technologies from the Semantic Web and
the Web of Data for PIM and to explore and discuss the challenges and
approaches for improving PIM through the use of vast amounts of
(semantic) information available online. At the same time we want to
provide a platform for discussing research topics and challenges
related to personal semantic data.
