The 2nd International Workshop on Social Data on the Web (SDoW2009), 
co-located with the 8th International Semantic Web Conference 
(ISWC2009), aims to bring together researchers, developers and 
practitioners involved in semantically-enhancing social media 
websites, as well as academics researching more formal aspect of 
these interactions between the Semantic Web and Social Web.

Since its first steps in 2001, many research issues have been tackled 
by the Semantic Web community such as data formalism for knowledge 
representation, data querying and scalability, or reasoning and 
inferencing. More recently, Web 2.0 offered new perspectives regarding 
information sharing, annotation, and social networking on the Web. It 
opens new research areas for the Semantic Web which has an important 
role to play to lead to the emergence of a Social Semantic Web that 
should provide novel services to end-users, combining the best of both 
Semantic Web and Web 2.0 worlds. To achieve this goal, various tasks 
and features are needed from data modelling and lightweight ontologies, 
to knowledge and social networks portability as well as ways to
data between Social Media websites, levering proprietary data silos to 
a Giant Global Graph.

Following the successful SDoW2008 workshop at ISWC2008, SDoW2009 aims
bring together Semantic Web experts and Web 2.0 practitioners and users 
to discuss the application of semantic technologies to data from the 
Social Web.
