         Workshop on Interacting with Linked Data (ILD 2012)

                      -- DEADLINE EXTENDED --


  Workshop co-located with the Extended Semantic Web Conference 2012

The workshop 'Interacting with Linked Data' is aimed at all researchers and practitioners working on the interaction with Linked Data and related topics.
Its goal is to bring together expertise from different communities, including NLP, HCI and Semantic Web, and to encourage communication across interaction
paradigms. We welcome research papers on all aspects of interaction with Linked Data, system descriptions of systems participating in the open challenge,
and short papers on preliminary research. The following topics are of special interest:

- Question answering and natural language interfaces to Linked Data
- HCI and Linked Data
- Faceted browsing and exploration
- New interaction metaphors for Linked Data
- Multimodal interfaces to Linked Data
- Disambiguation and inferencing across multiple sources and domains
- Natural language generation
- Discovery on the fly of relevant Linked Data sources
- Efficiency and performance aspects
- Dealing with data and schema heterogeneity
- Summarization and aggregation
- Providing justifications of answers and conveying trust
- Personalization in accessing Linked Data
- User feedback and interaction
- Habitability and usability aspects

Additionally, the workshop is accompanied by an open challenge on Question Answering over Linked Data. We provide two datasets together with a set of
training questions of different complexity levels with manually specified SPARQL queries and answers for each dataset. Participating systems will then be
evaluated on similarly annotated test questions with respect to precision and recall. For more information please consult the workshop website.

* Important Dates *

Deadline for workshop papers: March 16 (EXTENDED)
Notification of acceptance: April 10
Deadline for camera-ready version: April 24

PLEASE NOTE that any deadlines connected to the open challenge concern only the submission of answers and computed evaluation results, they do NOT concern paper
submissions. Papers describing systems that particiapte in the challenge or using challenge data for evaluation have to be submitted until March 16. There is no
separate paper submission in the context of the challenge. If you want to include results from the test phase into your paper as well (which we strongly encourage),
you can still do this when preparing the camera-ready version of the paper.

* Submission details *

Research papers should not exceed 12 pages in length (excluding references), system descriptions should not exceed 8 pages (excluding references).
Short papers describing preliminary research or positions can also be submitted and should not exceed 4 pages in length.
All papers have to be submitted in PDF format; camera-ready versions must be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines.

Submission and reviewing will be via EasyChair: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ild2012
