Hi all,

Tim Berners-Lee, Sören Auer, Tom Heath, Michael Hausenblas and I are organizing the 6th edition of the Linked Data on the Web workshop at WWW2013 in Rio de Janeiro. The paper submission deadline for the workshop is March 10 (in about 4 weeks). Please find the call for papers below.

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


Chris, Tim, Sören, Tom and Michael

*   Call for Papers: 6th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2013)*

      Co-located with 22nd International World Wide Web Conference
                 14 May 2013, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


Linked Data is a set of best practices for publishing structured data on
the Web which focuses on setting hyperlinks between data items provided
by different web servers. These hyperlinks connect the data from all
servers into a single global data graph - the Web of Linked Data.

The 6th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2013) aims to stimulate
further research into exploiting this global data graph to deliver
transformative applications to large user bases, as well as to mine the
graph for implicit knowledge. Inevitably the challenges associated with
Linked Data range from lower level 'plumbing' issues over large-scale
data processing and mining, to higher level conceptual questions of
value propositions and business models. LDOW2013 will provide a forum
for exposing novel, high quality research and applications in all of
these areas. In addition, by bringing together researchers in the field,
the workshop will further shape the ongoing Linked Data research agenda.

*Important Dates*

* Submission deadline: 10 March, 2013
* Notification of acceptance: 30 March, 2013
* Camera-ready versions of accepted papers: 15 April, 2013
* Workshop date: 14 May, 2013

*Topics of Interest*

Mining the Web of Linked Data
* large-scale derivation of implicit knowledge from the Web of Data
* using the Web of Linked Data as background knowledge in data mining

Linking and Fusion
* linking algorithms and heuristics, identity resolution
* increasing the value of Schema.org/OpenGraphProtocol through linking
* Web data integration and fusion
* performance of linking infrastructures/algorithms on Web data

Quality, Trust, Provenance and Licensing in Linked Data
* profiling and change tracking of Linked Data sources
* tracking provenance and usage of Linked Data
* evaluating quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data
* licensing issues in Linked Data publishing

Linked Data Applications and Business Models
* Linked Data browsers and search engines
* Linked Data as data integration technology within corporate contexts
* marketplaces, aggregators and indexes for Linked Data
* interface and interaction paradigms for Linked Data applications
* business models for Linked Data publishing and consumption
* Linked Data applications for life-sciences, digital humanities, social
sciences etc.


We seek two kinds of submissions:

   1. Full scientific papers: up to 10 pages in ACM format
   2. Short scientific and position papers: up to 5 pages in ACM format

Submissions must be formatted using the ACM SIG template available at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. Accepted
papers will be presented at the workshop and included in the CEUR
workshop proceedings. At least one author of each paper has to register
for the workshop and to present the paper. Please submit papers via
