====================================

Web of Linked Entities (WoLE2012)
- http://wole2012.eurecom.fr

In conjunction with the 11th International Semantic Web Conference 
(ISWC2012), Boston, November 11th 2012


OVERVIEW
========
The WoLE 2012 workshop envisions the Semantic Web as a Web of Linked 
Entities (WoLE), which transparently connects the World Wide Web (WWW) 
and the Giant Global Graph (GGG) using methods from Information 
Retrieval (IR) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). The focus of this 
workshop is to reconcile the communities of Information Retrieval, 
Semantic Web and NLP. The primary goal is to strengthen research 
techniques that provide access to textual information published on the 
Web to further improve the adoption of Semantic Web technology.

KEYNOTE
=======
Fabian M. Suchanek – “From Big Data to Good Data”

Abstract - Recent years have seen great progress in making data 
available in structured form on the Web. The Linked Open data 
initiative, notably, as well as advances in information extraction,
have contributed to larger and larger amounts of knowledge available on 
the Semantic Web. But is what we are all doing really good? In this 
talk, I will go beyond the quantity of the data, and look at the quality 
instead. I will discuss challenges and open issues on the path from "big 
data" to "good data".
