Call for Papers:


Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2012)


Workshop at WWW2012






16 April, 2012 Lyon, France






The Web is continuing to develop from a medium for publishing textual

documents into a medium for sharing structured data. In 2011, the Web

of Linked Data grew to a size of about 32 billion RDF triples, with

contributions coming increasingly from companies, governments and

other public sector bodies such as libraries, statistical bodies or

environmental agencies. In parallel, Google, Yahoo and Bing have

established the schema.org initiative, a shared set of schemata for

publishing structured data on the Web that focuses on vocabulary

agreement and low barriers of entry for data publishers. These

developments create a positive feedback loop for data publishers and

highlight new opportunities for commercial exploitation of Web data.


In this context, the LDOW2012 workshop provides a forum for presenting

the latest research on Linked Data and driving forward the research

agenda in this area. We expect submissions that discuss the deployment

of Linked Data in different application domains and explore the

motivation, value proposition and business models behind these

deployments, especially in relation to complementary and alternative

techniques for data provision (e.g. Web APIs, Microdata, Microformats)

and proprietary data sharing platforms (e.g. Facebook, Twitter,

Flickr, LastFM).




Topics of Interest


Topics of interest for the LDOW2012 workshop include, but are not limited


* Linked Data Deployment


    * case studies of Linked Data deployment and value propositions in
different application domains

    * application showcases including aggregators, search engines and
marketplaces for Linked Data

    * business models for Linked Data publishing and consumption

    * analyzing and profiling the Web of Data


* Linked Data and alternative Data Provisioning and Sharing Techniques


    * comparison of Linked Data to alternative data provisioning and sharing

    * implications and limitations of a public data commons on the Web
versus company-owned sharing platforms

    * increasing the value of Schema.org and OpenGraphProtocol data through
data linking


* Linked Data Infrastructure


    * crawling, caching and querying Linked Data on the Web

    * linking algorithms and identity resolution

    * Web data integration and data fusion

    * Linked Data mining and data space profiling

    * tracking provenance and usage of Linked Data

    * evaluating quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data

    * licensing issues in Linked Data publishing

    * interface and interaction paradigms for Linked Data applications

    * benchmarking Linked Data tools






We seek the following kinds of submissions:


   1. Full scientific papers: up to 10 pages in ACM format

   2. Short scientific and position papers: up to 5 pages in ACM format


Submissions must be formatted using the ACM SIG template (as per the

WWW2012 Research Track) available at

<http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates>. Please

note that the author list does not need to be anonymized, as we do not

operate a double-blind review process. Submissions will be peer

reviewed by at least three independent reviewers. Accepted papers will

be presented at the workshop and included in the workshop proceedings.

At least one author of each paper is expected to register for the

workshop and attend to present the paper.
