8th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2015)

Co-located with 24nd International World Wide Web Conference
18-22 May 2015, Florence, Italy

The Web is continuing to develop from a medium for publishing textual
documents into a medium for sharing structured data. In 2014, the Web of
Linked Data grew to a size of about 1000 datasets with contributions
coming from companies, governments and other public sector bodies such
as libraries, statistical bodies or research institutions. In parallel,
the initiative has found increasing adoption with large
numbers of websites semantically marking up the content of their HTML pages.

The 8th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2015) 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. In addition to its
traditional focus on open web data, the special focus of this year’s
LDOW workshop will be the application of Linked Data technologies in
enterprise settings as well as the potentials of interlinking closed
enterprise data with open data from the Web.
