The 2nd International Workshop on Dataset PROFIling & fEderated Search
for Linked Data (PROFILES’15)

Co-located with 12th ESWC Conference (ESWC 2015), May 31 – June 4, 2015.

New submission deadline: 16 March 2015
Venue: Portoroz, Slovenia.
Date: June 1 , 2015
URL: www.keystone-cost.eu/profiles2015/


The PROFILES’15 workshop aims to gather innovative query and 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’15 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 and Information Retrieval.

The main areas of interest of PROFILES’15 include dataset/endpoint
analysis, profiling and discovery along with techniques for distributed 
semantic search that take such profiles into account.

In particular this includes:

Dataset/endpoint analysis, profiling and discovery:

     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
     assessment of dataset schema conformance and evolution
     dataset quality analysis for query routing

Distributed semantic search:

     query routing taking into account relevance and quality of
distributed datasets
     semantic annotation and expansion for keyword queries
     keyword query interpretation and disambiguation for Linked Data
     fusing, cleaning, ranking and refining search results
     scalability & performance of distributed data queries
     novel applications for federated search over Linked Data

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

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted
according to the Springer LNCS proceedings style.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the PC. Papers
will be evaluated according to their
significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and
relevance to the workshop. Please submit your
contributions electronically in PDF format via the Easychair system:


The complete set of papers will be published with the CEUR Workshop
Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org), listed by the DBLP. The best papers of the 
workshop will be included in the supplementary proceedings of ESWC 2015, 
which will appear in the Springer LNCS series.
