                Social Data on the Web (SDoW2011)

                        October 23/24, 2011

                   collocated with ISWC 2011

               Paper submission: August 15, 2011



The 4th international workshop Social Data on the Web (SDoW2011),
co-located with the 10th International Semantic Web Conference
(ISWC2011), 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.

Important dates
* Submission deadline:            Aug 15, 2011
* Notification of acceptance:     Sep 05, 2011
* Camera-ready paper submission:  Sep 15, 2011

It is now widely agreed in the community that the Semantic Web
and the Social Web can benefit from each other. One the one hand,
the speed at which data is being created on the Social Web is
growing at exponential rate. Recent statistics showed that about
100 million Tweets are created per day and that Facebook has now
500 million users. Yet, some issues still have to be tackled, such
as how to efficiently make sense of all this data, how to ensure
trust and privacy on the Social Web, how to interlink data from
different systems, whether it is on the Web or in the enterprise,
or more recently, how to link Social Network and sensor networks
to enable Semantic Citizen Sensing.

Following the successful SDoW workshops at ISWC 2008, 2009 and
2010, this workshop will tackle these various topics and aims
at bringing together researchers and practitioners, as in the
3 previous editions. We aim 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. It is motivated by recent active developments in collaborative
and social software and their Semantic Web counterparts, notably in
the industry, such as FaceBook Open Graph Protocol.

* Applications and tools using Social Semantic Web technologies
