CfP: WWW2016 workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2016)

Hi all,

In case you don't know yet what do in your X-Mas holidays, why not
preparing a submission for the WWW2016 workshop on Linked Data on the
Web (LDOW2016) in Montreal, Canada ;-) The paper submission deadline for
the workshop is  24 January, 2016. Please find the call for papers below.

BTW: LDOW now also accepts HTML5+RDFa submissions according to the
Linked Research principles:
with embedded semantic and interactive content.

Looking forward seeing you at LDOW2016 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.
