Building on the previous editions and its growing community, Linked Learning 2013 will provide a forum to discuss approaches making use of Web Data resources and technologies, especially linked data, for teaching, learning and education. Distance teaching and openly available educational resources on the Web are becoming common practices with public higher education institutions as well as private training organisations realising the benefits of online resources. However, while research in educational technologies has been focusing on solving interoperability issues by creating a variety of metadata formats and environments for the exchange of educational resources, this has led to a very fragmented landscape of Web standards and approaches. Consequently, it is not only the case that interoperability between repositories of educational resources remains a challenge, but also that educational Web resources remain underexploited, as their connection, reuse and repurposing are barely supported by such technologies.

The very nature of the Linked Data approach offers promising solutions that can address these open challenges. In addition, the Linked Data movement has produced a vast body of knowledge and data which can substantially support and contribute to educational services and content. Building on the overwhelming success of earlier LILE editions, Linked Learning 2013 will bring together researchers and practitioners making innovative use of Linked Data technologies for educational purposes to discuss, exchange and disseminate their work.

LILE2013 aims to become a highly interactive research forum for exploring the promises of the Web of Linked Data in the broad area of education by gathering researchers from the areas of the Semantic Web, Social Web, Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), Open Educational Repositories, and Education. We will welcome high-quality papers about actual trends in (a) how education takes advantage of the Web of Data, especially through Linked Data technologies and (b) how Linked Data principles are being applied in educational contexts. We will seek application-oriented, as well as more theoretical papers and position papers in the following, non-exhaustive list of topics:

* Linked data for informal learning and Web-based education
* Using the Web of Data for personalisation and context-awareness in E-Learning
* Usability and advanced user interfaces in learning environments and linked data
* Light-weight educational metadata schemas
* Exposing learning objects to the Web of Data
* Semantic & syntactic mappings between educational metadata schemas
* Controlled vocabularies, ontologies and terminologies for E-Learning
* Personal & mobile learning environments on the Web
* Learning flows and designs with Semantic Web technologies
* Linked data in (visual) learning analytics and educational data mining
* Linked data in organizational learning and learning organizations
* Linked data for harmonizing individual learning goals and organizational objectives
* Competency management with linked data
* Collaborative learning on the Web of Data
* Linked-data enhanced social learning

We welcome the following types of contributions.

  * Short (up to 3 pages) and full (up to 6 pages) research papers 
  * Poster abstracts and system demonstrations should not exceed 2 pages. 

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted 
according to the ACM format (

Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF format at


Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop.

The main workshop proceedings will be published through the ACM Digital Library. Furthermore, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a journal special issue.
