[CfP] Future Internet Session at the Future Internet Assembly, Ghent, 16 December 2010

****Call for Position Papers for the Future Internet Session****
³Linked Data in the Future Internet² at the
Future Internet Assembly, Ghent, 16 December 2010

The Future Internet sparked the interest of many different
communities. All of these communities develop specific parts of
infrastructure, which at one point of time need to be able to
interoperate. Unfortunately, currently the Future Internet
architecture does not include means to achieve interoperability at a
data level. At the same time Linked Data is becoming an accepted best
practice to exchange information in an interoperable and reusable
fashion. Many different communities on the Internet use Linked Data
standards to provide and exchange interoperable information. This is
strikingly confirmed by the dramatically growing Linked Data cloud
(http://lod-cloud.net/) and the currently more than 25 billion facts
represented and interconnected therein with exponential growth rates
both in terms of data sets and contained data.

The OSI/OSI 7-Layer architecture is a conceptual view on networking
architectures. One possible view is a look at Linked Data as an
independent layer in the Internet architecture, on top of the
networking layer, but below the application layers, since it provides
a common data model for all applications as shown in the figure below.
This session investigates this view, what implications this imposes on
the Future Internet Architecture, but also how future architectures
and system developments can benefit from this new layer.

We are looking for position papers regarding the use of Linked Data in
the Future Internet. These can be either concrete current use-cases or
envisioned usages for the topics relevant for the Future Internet
(examples include: Internet of Things, embedded systems, FIRE,
services, smart cities., Open Government Data, Future Internet
Architecture and others).
The papers provide an input for the ongoing discussion on the role of
Linked Data for the Future Internet.

Your position paper should have between 1 and 10 pages. We encourage
authors to comply with the Springer LNCS format (see
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0 ).

Position papers can be submitted until 30th November 2010 by email to
in HTML or PDF.

The sessionıs organizers reserve the right to do a relevance check of
submitted position papers and reject papers, which are clearly not
relevant to the topic outlined above.

Submitted position papers will be published on a website related to
the Future Internet Assembly Linked Data Session and may influence
further developments in the Future Internet space.
