The 3rd international workshop Social Data on the Web (SDoW2010),
co-located with the 9th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2010).
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.

It is now widely agreed that the Semantic Web and the Social Web can benefit
from each other. On the one hand, the speed at which data is being created
on the Social Web is growing at exponential rate, as it offers users a variety
of applications for rapidly publishing and disseminating information to a
community of interest: blogs, wikis, microblogging, status notification, etc.
On the other hand, the Semantic Web plays a crucial role in the management of
all this networked knowledge, providing new ways to share and co-operate on
the Web using formal semantics. However, while both can be efficiently combined
to take into account the social aspect and the semantics of this data, there
are still a variety of important issues and research questions that must be
considered regarding data that arises from social interactions, such as
scalability, reasoning, privacy, context-awarness, security, etc.

Following the success of SDoW2008 and SDoW2009, this workshop aims to discuss
techniques, methods and applications that are appearing and that are required
to manage the data from the Social Web using semantic technologies, taking into
account social relations, information overload, aggregations and summaries,
trust and privacy, and other related research topics.

Topics of interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Applications and tools using Social Semantic Web technologies
* Creating RDF-based knowledge using social media services
* Data Portability and Social Network Portability
* Emerging semantic platforms for the Social Web
* Enriching Social Web with semantic data - RDFa, microformats and
  other approaches
* Linked Data on the Social Web - providing linked data from social
  media sites
* Mining and analysis of Social Data
* Ontologies for the Social Web - developing, using and extending
  lightweight ontologies/vocabularies for social media sites
* Querying and mining social semantic data
* Policies, authentication, security, and trust within collaborative
* Producing Semantic Web data from social software applications
* Reasoning for Social Web applications
* Semantic blogging, wikis and social networks
* Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC)
* Social and semantic bookmarking, tagging and annotation

The following types of contributions are welcomed:

* Full technical papers, up to 12 pages.
* Short technical papers and position papers, up to 6 pages.
* Posters and Demos, 2-3 pages with a description of the
  application, ideally accompanied with a link to an online demo.
