PLDN-SIKS Doctoral Consortium
At the Symposium Platform Linked Data Netherlands
A European Data Forum (EDF) 2016 side event
June 27th, 2016 at Eindhoven City Hall

The Doctoral Consortium
The Symposium Platform Linked Data Netherlands is the premier venue for 
Linked Data in Government and Industry in The Netherlands, organized by 
PLDN. This year’s symposium, held on June 27th, 2016 in Eindhoven, will 
host the first PLDN Doctoral Consortium, a cooperation between PLDN, 
SIKS, the Netherlands Research School for Information and Knowledge 
Systems and Amsterdam Data Science (ADS).

The consortium is an excellent opportunity for Ph.D. students to present 
their research to peers and to an international panel of prominent 
researchers in the field. The panel will provide the students with 
constructive feedback, additional ideas and suggestions about parallel 
ongoing work. The event is part of the SIKS educational program. All 
SIKS PhD students working on topics related to Linked Data, Semantic Web 
and Data Science are strongly encouraged to apply. Of course, other 
students are warmly welcome too.

The PLDN Doctoral Consortium is a great opportunity for students to 
build their professional networks, especially during the afternoon 
matchmaking event at the symposium.

The organising committee will select a group of students who will be 
invited to present their work. Selected students will give an oral 
presentation of their research. Prizes for the best students are awarded 
in two categories: one by a jury of experts, the other by the audience.

Applicants should submit an outline of their research plan (max. 4 
pages), including research questions and issues that they would like to 
discuss. The document should mention affiliation, their advisor's / 
supervisor's name(s) and the anticipated graduation date. The 
application is to be submitted to the EasyChair submission system at 

The symposium is a side event of the European Data Forum (EDF) 2016 
which takes place on June 29th – 30th, 2016 in Eindhoven, the 
Netherlands. Alongside the Doctoral Consortium, several keynote talks 
will be given at the symposium, and in the afternoon, a Linked Data 
Speed Dating will match knowledge-seekers in the audience with
