Fw: W3C Workshop on Linked Enterprise Data Patterns: Data-driven Applications on the Web (Call for Participation)

Hi folks,
Some of you have probably all heard about it but we would appreciate if 
you could pass this announcement around to anyone you think might be 
Thank you.

Beware that this is really meant to be more about plumbing issues related 
to Linked Data and not about semantics and inferencing. Also note that 
despite what the below message says the chairs for this workshop are Ashok 
Malhotra of Oracle, David Wood, and myself.

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

W3C is pleased to announce an upcoming Workshop:

                 Linked Enterprise Data Patterns: Data-driven Applications 
on the Web
                 6-7 December 2011
                 Cambridge, MA, USA
                 Hosted by W3C/MIT

The four rules of Linked Data provide a very simple guide for publishing 
data on the World Wide Web. This led to a remarkable evolution in the 
domain of publicly available data, commonly known as "Linked Open Data". 
Applications in that space are beginning to emerge, usually relying on the 
public availability of various Linked Open Datasets.

Linked Data technology also offers a huge potential for enterprise 
applications, e.g., for the integration and the management of data within 
and across enterprises. The distributed nature of Linked Data enables 
loose-coupling for data sharing within and between organizations. With 
Linked Data, enterprises have a unique opportunity to cooperate in their 
use of shared data without the costs of extensive coordination.

Sharing a common data model (RDF) allows us to establish design patterns 
for providing dereferencable resource identifiers, migrating and cloning 
data as business needs and data authorities evolve. These will address 
issues such as data distribution, query federation, access control, 
encryption and signature, legal problems around the access of datasets and 
business models in using open or closed linked data. Please join the W3C 
Linked Data community at this workshop to air requirements, share 
solutions and develop a healthy and scalable Linked Enterprise Data
