********************************************
Call for Papers: PROFILES 2014, May 26 2014, Crete, Greece.
********************************************

The 1st International Workshop on Dataset PROFIling & fEderated Search
for Linked Data (#PROFILES2014)

*****************************
Venue: Anissaras, Crete, Greece.
Date: May 26, 2014
Submission by: 14 March, 2014 (EXTENDED)
URL: www.keystone-cost.eu/profiles2014/

Co-located with 11th ESWC Conference, May 25 – 29, 2014.
*****************************

The PROFILES 2014 workshop aims to gather innovative search approaches
for large-scale, distributed and heterogeneous linked datasets inline
with dedicated approaches to analyse, describe and discover endpoints,
as an inherent task of query distribution. PROFILES 2014 will equally
consider both novel scientific methods and techniques for querying,
assessment, profiling, and curation of distributed datasets as well as
the application perspective, such as the innovative use of tools and
methods for providing structured knowledge about distributed datasets,
their evolution and fundamentally, means to search and query the Web of
Data. The workshop will provide a highly interactive forum for
researchers in the fields of Semantic Web and Linked Data, Databases,
Semantic Search, Text Mining, NLP as well as Information Retrieval.

The main areas of interest of PROFILES 2014 include:

* Dataset/endpoint analysis, profiling and discovery: *
- query routing taking into account relevance and quality of distributed
datasets
- dataset profile representation (vocabularies, schemas)
- novel applications and techniques for dataset profiling
- automated approaches to dataset analysis and exploration
- analysis/monitoring of dataset and graph dynamics
- topic profiling of datasets
- dataset and graph preservation
- assessment of dataset evolution
- assessment of dataset schema conformance and evolution
- dataset quality analysis for query routing
- assessment of data evolution and change propagation

* Distributed semantic search: *
- semantic annotation and expansion for keyword queries
- keyword query interpretation and disambiguation for Linked Data
- graph-based keyword search
- multi-lingual search
- categorization of keyword query interpretations and results, faceted
search
- fusing, cleaning, ranking and refining search results
- scalability & performance of distributed data queries
- novel applications for federated search over Linked Data

Submission Guidelines
*****************************

We welcome the following types of contributions:

* Short (up to 6 pages) and full (up to 15 pages) research papers;
* Poster abstracts and system demonstrations should not exceed 4 pages.

Papers should follow the Springer LNCS proceedings style. All
submissions must be written in English and must be formatted according
to the Springer LNCS proceedings style. Please submit your contributions
electronically in PDF format via the Easychair system:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=profiles2014.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the PC. The
program committee consists of well-recognized experts (from both
academia and industry) in the areas of semantic technologies, social
Web, NLP/text processing, as well as data and knowledge management.
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.
