Scientific communication has a long history of relying heavily  upon
publications and presentations, producing an estimate of millions of
publications worldwide per year. The results described in these
articles are often backed by large amounts of diverse data produced by
complex experiments, computer simulations, and observations of
physical phenomena. Because of this avalanche of data, it is
increasingly hard to validate, reproduce, reuse and leverage
scientific findings. In addition, although publications, methods and
datasets are very related, they are not equally accessible nor
seamlessly interlinked. One notable exception is molecular biology
research where journals require deposit of sequences in data banks as
a condition of publication. Even where data is discoverable and
accessible, significant challenges remain in data reuse and sharing,
in facilitating the necessary correlation, integration and synthesis
of data across levels of theory, techniques and disciplines.

In the 3rd International Workshop on Linked Science (LISC2013) we aim
to discuss and present results of new ways of applying Semantic Web
technologies to the publishing, sharing and interlinking of scientific
data and methods, and to the reasoning over such resources to discover
interesting new links to validate, reuse and reproduce scientific
research. The theme of this year’s workshop is “Supporting
Reproducibility, Scientific Investigations and Experiments”. We will
focus on scientific investigations and experiments that use Linked
Data and semantic technologies to represent their data and methods and
enable their knowledge discovery, reuse and validation.

LISC2013 will be a mixture of paper and demo presentations and
break-out sessions. Workshop participants will also be expected to
contribute informally to discussions as well as bring up their own
topics of interest. LISC2013 is a continuation of the 1st
International Workshop on Linked Science 2011 (LISC2011) and 2nd
International Workshop on Linked Science 2012 (LISC2012).


We invite two kinds of submissions:

Research papers. These should not exceed 12 pages in length.
Position papers. Novel ideas, experiments, and application visions
from multiple disciplines and viewpoints are a key ingredient of the
workshop. We therefore strongly encourage the submission of position
papers. Position papers  should not exceed 4 pages in length.

The research papers can include optional materials. Example of these
materials are  tutorials that explain more in detail scientific study
setting of the research paper. Note that based on numerous requests we
decided to accept also other optional materials than just tutorials.
Supplementary materials will be published online at LinkedScience.org
and linked to the according workshop paper.  The tutorial materials
will be published at  LinkedScience.org/tutorials. Accepted papers
will be published at CEUR workshop series.

Submissions should be formatted according to the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science guidelines for proceedings available at
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0. Papers
should be submitted in PDF format. The optional tutorial materials are
submitted as a zip (preferably wordpress friendly html including all
figures). Submissions are done via Easychair:

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the
workshop. All workshop participants have to register for the main
conference, ISWC2013, as well.


In all three categories, the submissions are expected in (but not
restricted to) the following topics:

Linked Data- based scientific experiments
Dissemination and integration of scientific resources (data, methods,
etc) using the Semantic Web
Linked Citizen Science
Scientific Information Retrieval
Formal representations of scientific data
Ontologies for scientific information
Reasoning mechanisms for interlinking scientific datasets and other resources
Integration of quantitative and qualitative scientific information
Ontology-based visualization of scientific data
Semantic similarity in science applications
Semantic integration of crowd sourced scientific data
Provenance, quality, privacy and trust of scientific information
Support for data publishing for sharing and reuse
Case studies on linked science, i.e., astronomy, biology,
environmental and socio- economic impacts of global warming,
statistics, environmental monitoring, cultural heritage, etc.
Replication of SW experiments
Reproduction of SW approaches & results
Incentives for reproducing work by others & making own work reproducible
Use of SW technology to support replication & reproduction


The Workshop Proceedings will be published online.
