Yes, I published the ISWC2011 dataset, though it doesn't look like any of
the comments were about that dataset.

Some of the people who have contributed datasets to
data.semanticweb.orgfrom previous events are listed on the contact
page,
http://data.semanticweb.org/documentation/user/contact. However, I think the
comments were mostly about events that don't have metadata chairs listed
there either.
