of the Linked Data on the Web workshop at WWW2016 in Montreal, Canada. The
paper submission deadline for the workshop is  24 January, 2016. Please find
the call for papers below.

We are looking forward to having another exciting workshop and to seeing
many of you in Montreal.

  Call for Papers: 9th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2016)

     Co-located with 25th International World Wide Web Conference
                April 11 to 15, 2016 in Montreal, Canada


The Web is developing from a medium for publishing textual documents into a
medium for sharing structured data. This trend is fueled on the one hand by
the adoption of the Linked Data principles by a growing number of data
providers. On the other hand, large numbers of websites have started to
semantically mark up the content of their HTML pages and thus also
contribute to the wealth of structured data available on the Web.

The 9th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2016) aims to stimulate
discussion and further research into the challenges of publishing,
consuming, and integrating structured data from the Web as well as mining
knowledge from the global Web of Data. The special focus of this year’s LDOW
workshop will be Web Data Quality Assessment and Web Data Cleansing.
