Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2010) Workshop at WWW2010


April 27th, 2010, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA



The Web is increasingly understood as a global information space
consisting not just of linked documents, but also of linked data. More
than just a vision, the resulting Web of Data has been brought into
being by the maturing of the Semantic Web technology stack, and by the
publication of large datasets according to the principles of Linked
Data. To date, the Web of Data has grown to a size of roughly 13.1
billion RDF triples, with contributions coming increasingly from
companies, government and public sector projects, as well as from
individual Web enthusiasts. In addition to publishing and interlinking
datasets, there is intensive work on Linked Data browsers, Web of Data
search engines and other applications that consume Linked Data from
the Web.

LDOW2010 follows the successful LDOW2008 workshop at WWW2008 in
Beijing and the LDOW2009 workshop at WWW2009 in Madrid. As the
publication of Linked Data on the Web continues apace, the need
becomes more pressing for principled research in the areas of user
interfaces for the Web of Data as well as on issues of quality, trust
and provenance in Linked Data. We also expect to see a number of
submissions related to current areas of high Linked Data activity,
such as government transparency, life sciences and the media industry.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for exposing high
quality, novel research and applications in these (and related) areas.
In addition, by bringing together researchers in this field, we expect
the event to further shape the ongoing Linked Data research agenda.


Topics of Interest

Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to,
the following:

1. Linked Data Application Architectures
   * crawling, caching and querying Linked Data
   * dataset dynamics and synchronization
   * Linked Data mining

2. Data Linking and Data Fusion
   * linking algorithms and heuristics, identity resolution
   * Web data integration and data fusion
   * link maintenance
   * performance of linking infrastructures/algorithms on Web data

3. Quality, Trust and Provenance in Linked Data
   * tracking provenance and usage of Linked Data
   * evaluating quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data
   * profiling of Linked Data sources

4. User Interfaces for the Web of Data
   * approaches to visualizing and interacting with distributed Web data
   * Linked Data browsers and search engines

5. Data Publishing
   * tools for publishing large data sources as Linked Data on the Web
(e.g. relational databases, XML repositories)
   * embedding data into classic Web documents (e.g. RDFa, Microformats)
   * describing data on the Web (e.g. voiD, Semantic Site Map)
   * licensing issues in Linked Data publishing

6. Business models for Linked Data publishing and consumption



We seek three kinds of submissions:

1. Full technical papers: up to 10 pages in ACM format
2. Short technical and position papers: up to 5 pages in ACM format
3. Demo description: up to 2 pages in ACM format

Submissions must be formatted using the WWW2010 templates available at

Submissions will be peer reviewed by three independent reviewers.
Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and included in the
workshop proceedings.

Please submit your paper via EasyChair at
