As RAFT hit the LOD community in 2010 with the seminal paper "Leveraging 
Non-Lexical Knowledge for the Linked Open Data Web", I invite Linked 
Data specialists as well as Semantic Web experts to submit to our annual 
review on nonchalant research.

Apologies for multiple postings. Please disseminate widely.

Call for papers
We are very proud to announce the seventh edition of the Review of April 
Fool's day Transactions (RAFT'2012) which unexpectedly follows the sixth 
edition in 2011. Last year, we had an impressive media coverage, with an 
astounding reference in The Wall Street Journal. This year, we are 
planning to award the best paper by engraving the winners' article in 
stone tablets, to be displayed at a public event. For these reasons, we 
invite you to submit a paper, by March 15th, 2012, to the RAFT Editorial 
Board for consideration at the RAFT'2012 'Ground Breaking' edition. 
According to the Maias, it is your last chance of having a paper 
published in RAFT before the end of the world.

In the same spirit as in the previous years' issues, we demand that the 
submitted papers follow strict rigour, technical soundness, originality, 
humour, funniness, weirdness and comprehensibleness. We greatly 
recommend nonsense, Gibberish, gobbledygook jargon and blah blah. Topics 
are entirely up to the authors, but a rude scientific treatment should 
be inflicted to the matter in question.

Papers must be submitted via email to either Rodolphe Héliot 
(rh@aprilfoolsreview.com) or Antoine Zimmermann 
(az@aprilfoolsreview.com) and should fit one of the following formats: 
LaTeX or any kind of formatted text (e.g., Micro$oft Word, RTF, HTML, 
etc). Paper language can be either French or English.
