Call for Papers: First Workshop on Managing the Evolution and Preservation of the Data Web
http://www.diachron-fp7.eu/workshops.html

Co-located with ESWC 2015, Portorož, Slovenia

There is a vast and rapidly increasing quantity of scientific, corporate, government and crowd-sourced data published on the emerging Data Web. Open Data are expected to play a catalyst role in the way structured information is exploited in the large scale. This offers a great potential for building innovative products and services that create new value from already collected data. Open Data published according to the Linked Data Paradigm are essentially transforming the Web into a vibrant information ecosystem.
Published datasets are openly available on the Web. A traditional view of digitally preserving them by “pickling them and locking them away” for future use, like groceries, would conflict with their evolution. There are a number of approaches and frameworks, such as the LOD2 stack, that manage a full life-cycle of the Data Web. More specifically, these techniques are expected to tackle major issues such as the synchronisation problem, the curation problem, the appraisal problem, the citation problem, the archiving problem, and the sustainability problem.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners who apply linked data technologies to discuss, exchange and disseminate their work. More broadly, this will enable communities interested in data, knowledge and ontology dynamics to network and cross-fertilise.

== IMPORTANT DATES ==

Submission: 21th March 2015 (EXTENDED DEADLINE!)
Notification: 3rd April 2015
Final version: 17th April 2015
Workshop: 31st May 2015

== TOPICS ==

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following themes related to the evolution and preservation of linked data:
The Representation and Reasoning of Evolving Knowledge: Time representation, Semantic evolution and discovery, Provenance in evolution, Reasoning for trend analysis, Reasoning for knowledge shift detection, Quality assessment for evolving knowledge
The Visualization and Presentation of Evolving Knowledge: Representing, querying and browsing evolving knowledge, Visualizing trends, changes and paradigm shifts, Visual summarization of knowledge sub-domains, User interfaces for evolving knowledge presentation
Data Preservation: Digital preservation for linked data, Digital preservation for the Data Web, Dynamics of context or background (tacit) knowledge


== SUBMISSION GUIDELINES ==

We invite submissions of Research Papers (max 15 pages), Position Papers (max 5 pages), and System and Dataset descriptions (max 5 pages). We welcome submissions of original work that has not been submitted or published elsewhere. We encourage papers describing significant work in progress, late breaking results or ideas of the domain.

All accepted papers will be published in the CEUR workshop proceedings series. The best papers accepted for this workshop will be included in the supplementary proceedings of ESWC 2015, which will appear in the Springer LNCS series. The authors of these papers will also be invited to submit to an upcoming special issue on Managing the Evolution and Preservation of the Data Web of the International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems.

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS format. For submissions that are not in the LNCS PDF format, 400 words count as one page. All papers should be submitted to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mepdaw2015
