The concept of Web as middleware gains further appeal with a wider audience. Many
services, e.g. Twitter, see significant traffic via their API. The demand for data
level access to services on the Web through APIs is an indicator of the emergent Web
of Data. The progress of the Web of Data is accompanied by gathering momentum behind
REST in the enterprise and as the foundation of many Cloud related interface
specification (and possibly standardization) activities. One aspect of RESTful web
based M2M interactions concerns the ongoing discussion about data models. One
contender in this area is RDF, which has been reinvigorated in recent years by the
campaign for LinkedData, which has placed a stronger emphasis on actual published
data. This can be seen in various Governmental initiatives publishing public data; a
high-profile demonstration of the value of connecting data across otherwise separated
systems. One theory is that domain-specific data formats will slowly start to yield to
the necessity for a common data format, especially, as the continuing trend towards a
Web of data encourages the conception of ?bigger? applications with increased
information and reach. We welcome papers from researchers developing web-based APIs
and data intensive Cloud services; associated methodologies, strategies, business
models, challenges and data models.

Topics of Interest

Business models and applications of LinkedData
Adoption of Semantic Web technologies by enterprises
APIs for LinkedData
Dynamic LinkedData
Enterprise software and LinkedData
Application of LinkedData in the Enterprise
REST and Cloud standardisation
RESTful API development methodologies
