Hi all,


we are happy to announce that there will be a 3rd edition of the Linked Data
on the Web workshop at WWW2010 in Raleigh.


After Web of Data has grown for another year, we think that it will be
exciting to bring the community together at LDOW2010 and discuss what we
have achieved so far and what will be the most important topics for the year
to come.


The LDOW2010 website is found at http://events.linkeddata.org/ldow2010/


The Call for Papers is found below.


We are looking forward to see you in Raleigh.

Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2010) Workshop


at WWW2010




April 27th or 28th, 2010

Raleigh, USA





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 resulting 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. To date, the Web
of Data has grown to a size of roughly 13.1 billion RDF triples, with
contributions coming increasingly from companies, government and public
sector projects, as well as from individual Web enthusiasts. In addition to
publishing and interlinking datasets, there is intensive work on Linked Data
browsers, Web of Data search engines and other applications that consume
Linked Data from the Web.


LDOW2010 follows the successful LDOW2008 workshop at WWW2008 in Beijing and
the LDOW2009 workshop at WWW2009 in Madrid. As the publication of Linked
Data on the Web continues apace, the need becomes more pressing for
principled research in the areas of user interfaces for the Web of Data as
well as on issues of quality, trust and provenance in Linked Data. We also
expect to see a number of submissions related to current areas of high
Linked Data activity, such as government transparency, life sciences and the
media industry. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for exposing
high quality, novel research and applications in these (and related) areas.
In addition, by bringing together researchers in this field, we expect the
event to further shape the ongoing Linked Data research agenda.



Topics of Interest


Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to, the


1. Linked Data Application Architectures 

   * crawling, caching and querying Linked Data 

   * dataset dynamics and synchronization 

   * Linked Data mining 


2. Data Linking and Data Fusion 

   * linking algorithms and heuristics, identity resolution 

   * Web data integration and data fusion 

   * link maintanance 

   * performance of linking infrastructures/algorithms on Web data 


3. Quality, Trust and Provenance in Linked Data 

   * tracking provenance and usage of Linked Data 

   * evaluating quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data 

   * profiling of Linked Data sources 


4. User Interfaces for the Web of Data 

   * approaches to visualizing and interacting with distributed Web data 

   * Linked Data browsers and search engines 


5. Data Publishing 

   * tools for publishing large data sources as Linked Data on the Web (e.g.
relational databases, XML repositories) 

   * embedding data into classic Web documents (e.g. RDFa, Microformats) 

   * describing data on the Web (e.g. VoiD, Semantic Site Map) 

   * licensing issues in Linked Data publishing 


6. Business models for Linked Data publishing and consumption
