Hi all,

Sören Auer, Tim Berners-Lee, Tom Heath, and I are organizing the 7th  
edition of the Linked Data on the Web workshop at WWW2014 in Seoul,  
Korea. The paper submission deadline for the workshop is February  
16th, 2014. Please find the call for papers below.

We are looking forward to having another exciting workshop and to  
seeing many of you in Korea.

   Call for Papers: 7th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2014)

      Co-located with 23nd International World Wide Web Conference
                 7-11 April 2014, Seoul, Korea


Linked Data is a set of best practices for publishing structured data  
on the Web which focuses on identifying data items with URIs and  
setting hyperlinks between data items provided by different web  
servers. These hyperlinks connect the data from all servers into a  
global data graph - the Web of Linked Data.

The 7th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2014) aims to  
stimulate discussion and further research into the challenges of  
publishing, integrating and consuming Linked Data as well as to  
evaluating and mining knowledge from the global Web of Linked Data.  
The challenges associated with Linked Data management range from lower  
level technical issues over large-scale data processing, quality  
assessment and mining, to higher level conceptual questions of value  
propositions and business models. LDOW2014 will provide a forum for  
exposing novel, high quality research and applications in all of these  
areas. By bringing together researchers in the field, the workshop  
will further shape the ongoing Linked Data research agenda.
