                      Call for Papers

        1st Workshop on Personal Semantic Data: PSD 2010

                co-located with EKAW 2010

           11th - 15th October, Lisbon, Portugal

Personal Semantic Data is scattered over several media, and while semantic
technologies are already successfully deployed on the Web as well on the
desktop, data integration is not always straightforward. The transition 
from the
desktop to a distributed system for Personal Information Management 
(PIM) raises
new challenges which need to be addressed. These challenges overlap areas
related to human-computer interaction, privacy and security, information
extraction, retrieval and matching.

This workshop will bring together academics and industrial practitioners 
the goal of fostering cross-domain collaborations to further advance the 
use of
technologies from the Semantic Web and the Web of Data for PIM and to 
and discuss the  challenges and approaches for improving PIM through the 
use of
vast amounts of (semantic) information available online. At the same 
time we
want to provide a platform for discussing research topics and challenges 
to personal semantic data.

* 19 July 2010 - Submission deadline
* 9 August 2010 - Notification
* 27 August 2010 - Camera-ready version

== TOPICS ==
The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

* Bridging the gap between Semantic Desktop Data and Linked (Open) Data
- Interlinking personal desktop data with Semantic Web data
- Enriching desktop information with Web data
- Publishing semantic personal data from the desktop to the Web, including
trust and privacy issues
- Mapping and synchronizing personal semantic data from heterogeneous 
- New forms of visualization of mashed and hybrid personal data from the
desktop and Web

* Managing personal data across heterogeneous social media sites
- Mapping and synchronizing personal social data across heterogeneous 
media and the desktop
- Searching and browsing personal social data across heterogeneous data 
and using heterogeneous interfaces (e.g. mobile devices)
- Modeling of semantic information for personal and social use

* Generation of personal semantic data from novel sources
- Semi-automatic and automatic generation of semantic data from personal
- Fusion of mobile and desktop environments
- Interlinking newly generated semantic data with existing sources

We encourage full papers (max 12 pages), short paper (max 6 pages) and 
demo papers (max 2 pages) describing significant work in progress, late 
results or ideas / challenges for the domain. Submissions should follow
