USEWOD 2013: Call for late 2-page research abstracts
This is the second call for late research abstracts that describe experiments or plans that involve the USEWOD data sets. For a description of the datasets, see http://data.semanticweb.org/usewod/2013/. The abstracts will not be published
as part of the USEWOD 2013 workshop proceedings but authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to give a 15 minutes presentation at the day of the workshop. The decision about acceptance of abstracts will be made by the workshop chairs.

Important dates
* Abstract submission deadline: 10 May 2013
* Notification of acceptance: 13 May 2013
* Workshop and USEWOD Challenge: 26 May 2013

Late abstracts must be submitted as a PDF no longer than 2 pages without any strict formatting requirements. However, ACM (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) or LNCS (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0) formats are recommended. Proceed to https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=usewod2013 for submitting your abstracts.

USEWOD 2013: Call for participation in the 1st USEWOD on-site hacking challenge
We have released a data set of usage data (server log files) from Linked Open Data sources. This year's challenge data increases the amount of logs available from DBpedia and Semantic Web Dog Food (SWDF), and adds a new focus on the biomedical domain, by adding SPARQL endpoint logs from bioportal.bioontology.org<http://bioportal.bioontology.org/> (one of the most actively used terminology services in the biomedical domain, and well-known beyond the borders of the Computer Science research community) and open-biomed.org.uk<http://open-biomed.org.uk/>.

In addition to our regular USEWOD Data Challenge, we now also invite you to participate in our USEWOD 2013 On-site Hacking Challenge: 8 days before the workshop starts we will release a specific subset of this data and invite
people to process and/or analyse it. The formal requirement for participation will be that the code used to process the data is publicly available as open source, accompanied results of the processing, such as visualisations, or newly found relations between entities in the challenge data (i.e., "linksets"). Participants will be asked to pitch their approach at the workshop in a ~three minutes - three slides lightning talk.

The submission should be done via easychair as a plain text file containing URIs where the respective resources are available for download, and must not be done later than May 24th 23:59 CET.

More information as well as the data will be available at: http://data.semanticweb.org/usewod/2013/onsite_challenge.html

The purpose of this workshop is to investigate new developments concerning
the synergy between semantics and semantic-web technology on the one hand,
and the analysis and mining of usage data on the other hand. Semantics can
be used to enhance the analysis of usage data. Usage data analysis can
enhance semantic resources as well as Semantic Web applications.

The emerging Web of Data demands a re-evaluation of existing evaluation
techniques: the Linked Data community is recognizing that it needs to move
"beyond triple counts". Usage analysis is a key method for the evaluation of
a datasets and applications. New ways of accessing information enabled by
the Web of Data requires the development or adaptation of algorithms,
methods, and techniques to analyze and interpret the usage of Web data
instead of Web pages. The results can provide fine-grained insights into how
semantic datasets and applications are being accessed and used by both
humans and machines - insights that are needed for optimizing the design and
ultimately ensuring the success of semantic resources.

Topics of interest
USEWOD2013 welcomes all research that combines usage data and the web of
data, for instance work on:
* Analysis and mining of usage logs of semantic resources and applications.
* Inferring semantic information from usage logs.
* Methods and tools for semantic analysis of usage logs.
* Representing and enriching usage logs with semantic information.
* Usage-based evaluation methods and frameworks; gold standards for
evaluation of web applications.
* Specifics and semantics of logs for content-consumption and
* Using semantics for recommendation, personalization and adaptation.
* Usage-based recommendation, personalization and adaptation of semantic web
* Exploiting usage logs for semantic search.
* Data sharing, privacy, and privacy-protecting policies and techniques.

* Knud Moeller, Datalysator, Berlin, Germany
* Markus Luczak-Roesch, Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany
* Laura Hollink, VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands
