SDoW 2010 : 3rd International Workshop on Social Data on the Web
Call For Papers
Aim and scope
The 3rd international workshop Social Data on the Web (SDoW2010) co-located with the 9th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2010) aims to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners involved in semantically-enhancing social media websites, as well as academics researching more formal aspect of these interactions between the Semantic Web and Social Web.
It is now widely agreed that the Semantic Web and the Social Web can benefit from each other. On the one hand, the speed at which data is being created on the Social Web is growing at exponential rate, as it offers users a variety of applications for rapidly publishing and disseminating information to a community of interest: blogs, wikis, microblogging, status notification, etc. On the other hand, the Semantic Web plays a crucial role in the management of all this networked knowledge, providing new ways to share and co-operate on the Web using formal semantics. However, while both can be efficiently combined to take into account the social aspect and the semantics of this data, there are still a variety of important issues and research questions that must be considered regarding data that arises from social interactions, such as scalability, reasoning, privacy, context-awarness, security, etc.
Following the success of SDoW2008 and SDoW2009, this workshop aims to discuss techniques, methods and applications that are appearing and that are required to manage the data from the Social Web using semantic technologies, taking into account social relations, information overload, aggregations and summaries, trust and privacy, and other related research topics.
