Workshop on Benchmarking Linked Data (BLINK) at ISWC 2017, Vienna,
Austria https://project-hobbit.eu/events/blink2017/

***** PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO AUGUST 6th, 2017 *****

CALL FOR PAPERS

BLINK provides a forum where topics related to the evaluation
(included, but not limited to, expressive power, usability and
performance) of Linked Data Technologies for different steps of the
Big Linked Data Value Chain can be discussed and elaborated upon.

Big Linked Data is entering the new data economy. Systems are
constantly being developed in order to support the booming exchange of
data (existing in numerous formats) in the Web and the Enterprise. Big
Linked Data standards and benchmarks can function as valuable tools to
objectively depict and illustrate the level of adequacy and thus
performance provided of the existing Linked Data tools.

BLINK 2017 is bringing together a broad range of attendants
interested in benchmarking Big Linked Data tools and technologies and
aims at identifying the specific needs and challenges of the domain in
order to foster interdisciplinary collaborations towards attaining
these challenges.

More specifically the objectives of this workshop are to:

* create a discussion forum where researchers and industrials can meet
   and discuss topics related to the performance of Linked Data systems
   and
* expose and initiate discussions on best practices, different
   application needs and scenarios related to Linked Data management.

Topics of Interest

We welcome contributions presenting experiences with benchmarking
Linked Data technologies as well as technical contributions regarding
the development of benchmarks for all aspects of the Linked Data/Big
Data lifecycle. All domains such as life science, social networks,
cultural heritage, smart cities, news, digital forensics, e-science
and geospatial data management are welcome .

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Linked Data benchmarks
* Linked Data benchmark evaluation
* Linked Data processing chain
* Tools and methodologies for the Big Linked Data Value Chain:
       * generation and acquisition
     * analytics and processing
     * storage and curation
     * link discovery and instance matching
     * archiving and versioning
     * visualization and data access

This series of workshops are supported by H2020 European Project
HOBBIT (Holistic Benchmarking of Big Linked Data), see
http://project-hobbit.eu/.

Paper Submissions:

The workshop will accept two types of submissions: short papers (8
pages) will be either position papers or describe early works in the
area of benchmarking. Long papers (up to 16 pages) will describe
benchmarks, benchmarking techniques or benchmarking results as well as
systems and benchmark surveys along the linked data lifecycle.

This year we invite interested parties to submit papers where they
describe 5 queries/tasks for the HOBBIT benchmarks of their choice
that would stress existing Linked Data technologies. The interested
parties will be able to run those additional queries using the HOBBIT
platform and the results of these experiments will be presented at a
special session of the BLINK workshop during which authors will be
able to discuss with the workshop organisers their experience with the
results of the HOBBIT benchmarks.

The authors of the accepted papers will be able to publish an extended
version of their papers at a Special Issue on Benchmarking Big Linked
Data at the Semantic Web Journal (SWJ).

Submissions must be in PDF, formatted in the style of the Springer
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). For
details on the LNCS style, see Springer’s Author Instructions.

Papers should be submitted through the EasyChair system
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=blink2017 no later than
midnight Hawaii time August 6th, 2017.
*** Paper Abstracts should be submitted before July 28th, 2017.***

Submissions will be reviewed by members of the workshop program committee.
Accepted papers will be included in the ISWC 2017 Workshop on
Benchmarking Linked Data (BLINK) proceedings.
