The 2nd International Workshop on Social Data on the Web (SDoW2009),
co-located with the 8th International Semantic Web Conference
(ISWC2009), aims to bring together researchers, developers and
practitioners involved in semantically-enhancing social media
websites, as well as academics researching more formal aspect of
these interactions between the Semantic Web and Social Web.

Since its first steps in 2001, many research issues have been tackled
by the Semantic Web community such as data formalism for knowledge
representation, data querying and scalability, or reasoning and
inferencing. More recently, Web 2.0 offered new perspectives regarding
information sharing, annotation, and social networking on the Web. It
opens new research areas for the Semantic Web which has an important
role to play to lead to the emergence of a Social Semantic Web that
should provide novel services to end-users, combining the best of both
Semantic Web and Web 2.0 worlds. To achieve this goal, various tasks
and features are needed from data modelling and lightweight ontologies,
to knowledge and social networks portability as well as ways to  
data between Social Media websites, levering proprietary data silos to
a Giant Global Graph.

Following the successful SDoW2008 workshop at ISWC2008, SDoW2009 aims to
bring together Semantic Web experts and Web 2.0 practitioners and users
to discuss the application of semantic technologies to data from the
Social Web.
