AImWD-2013: Deadline Extension and Final CFP


The paper submission deadline for AImWD-2013 has been extended to March 18, 2013. 


2nd International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence meets the Web of Data (AImWD-2013) 
co-located with the Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC-2013) 
( ) 


The Linked Data initiative aims at improving data publication on the Web, thereby creating a "Web of Data": an interconnected, distributed, global data space. The Web of Data enables people to share structured data on the Web as easily as they can currently share documents on the Web of Documents (WWW). The availability of this global data space creates new opportunities for the exploitation of Artificial Intelligence techniques in relation with knowledge representation, information extraction, data mining, information integration, and intelligent agents. Two approaches can emerge: (i) using AI techniques to address the problems the Web of Data faces or, (ii) using the design principles of the Web of Data to improve knowledge representation, publications and reasoning within AI techniques. 
The workshop is inherently interdisciplinary, as it attempts to integrate the Semantic Web and AI disciplines like natural language processing, AI and law, game theory, cognitive science, and digital societies. This workshop aims at bringing them together, and we invite papers from all the above disciplines, in particular those that cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries. With this workshop, our goal is to contribute to the birth of a community having a shared interest around publishing data on the Web, exploring and reasoning over it using AI technologies - or the inverse, improving AI technologies by the adoption of techniques and tools proposed within Web of Data research. 


We solicit original and high quality submissions addressing all aspects of these fields. The topics 
of interest include, but are not limited to the following: 

- Computer vision and the Web of Data 
- Web-based agent coordination, collaboration, and planning 
- Agreement technologies and the Web of Data 
- Multi-agent learning in the Web of Data
