Together with Sir Tim Berners-Lee (W3C/MIT, USA), Tom Heath (Talis Information Ltd, UK) and Michael Hausenblas (DERI, Irland), Christian Bizer is organizing the 3rd Linked Data on the Web workshop at the 19th World Wide Web Conference (WWW2010) in Raleigh, USA.
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. The workshop will also cover 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 areas. In addition, by bringing together researchers in this field, we expect the event to further shape the ongoing Linked Data research agenda.
The workshop received 44 submissions, out of which 19 were accepted, covering the complete spectrum from Linked Data publication to Linked Data consumption as well as conceptual topics like identification, disambiguation and automated interlinkage.
