2st Int’l Workshop on
Data Engineering meets the Semantic Web (DESWeb2011)
(Towards semantic-based data engineering for the Web)
Co-located with ICDE 2011

Modern web applications like Wiki’s, social 
networking sites and mashups, are radically 
changing the nature of modern Web from a 
publishing-only environment into a vivant place 
for information exchange. The successful 
exploitation of this information largely depends 
on the ability to successfully communicate the 
data semantics, which is exactly the vision of 
the Semantic Web. In this context, new challenges 
emerge for semantic-aware data management systems.

The contribution of the data management community 
in the Semantic Web effort is fundamental. RDF 
has already been adopted as the representation 
model and exchange format for the semantics of 
the data on the Web. Although, until recently, 
RDF had not received considerable attention, the 
recent publication in RDF format of large 
ontologies with millions of entities from sites 
like Yahoo! and Wikipedia, the huge amounts of 
microformats in RDF from life science 
organizations, and the gigantic RDF bibliographic 
annotations from publishers, have made clear the 
need for advanced management techniques for RDF data.

On the other hand, traditional data management 
techniques have a lot to gain by incorporating 
semantic information into their frameworks. 
Existing data integration, exchange and query 
solutions are typically based on the actual data 
values stored in the repositories, and not on the 
semantics of these values. Incorporation of 
semantics in the data management process improves 
query accuracy, and permit more efficient and 
effective sharing and distribution services. 
Integration of new content, on-the-fly generation 
of mappings, queries on loosely structured data, 
keyword searching on structured data 
repositories, and entity identification, are some 
of the areas that can benefit from the presence 
of semantic knowledge alongside the data.

The goal of DESWeb is to bring together 
researchers and practitioners from both fields of 
Data Management and Semantic Web. It aims at 
investigating the new challenges that Semantic 
Web technologies have introduced and new ways 
through which these technologies can improve 
existing data management solutions. Furthermore, 
it intends to study what data management systems 
and technologies can offer in order to improve 
the scalability and performance of Semantic Web applications.
