1st International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence meets the Web of Data (AImWD-2012)
co-located with European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI-2012)
( )


The Linked Data initiative aims at improving data publication on the Web, thereby creating a
Web of Data: an interconnected, distributed, global data space. The Web of Data enables
people to share structured data on the Web as easily as they can currently share documents on
the Web of Documents (WWW). The basic assumption behind the Web of Data is that the
value and usefulness of data increases with the amount of interlinking with other data. The
emerging Web of Data includes datasets as extensive and diverse as DBpedia, Flickr, and
DBLP. A tip of the iceberg representation of its content is behind maintained at
The availability of this global data space creates new opportunities for the exploitation of
Artificial Intelligence techniques in relation with knowledge representation, information
extraction, information integration, and intelligent agents. Two approaches can emerge: (i)
using AI techniques to address the problems the Web of Data faces or, (ii) using the design
principles of the Web of Data to improve knowledge representation within AI techniques.
The workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on the Web of
Data and/or Artificial Intelligence to discuss the union of these two research areas. Several
core challenges, such as the interconnection of heterogeneous datasets, the provenance of the
information and trust issues will be at the centre of the discussion. With this workshop, our
goal is to contribute to the birth of a community having a shared interest around publishing
data on the Web and exploring it using AI technologies ? or the inverse, developing and
improving AI technologies which use tools from the Web of Data.

We solicit original and high quality submissions addressing all aspects of this field. The topics
of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

* Use of machine learning algorithms for linking in the Web of Data
* Inference techniques for answering questions using the Web of Data
* Exploiting rich knowledge bases in the Web of Data
* Intelligent agents exploiting the Web of Data
* Use data mining techniques to schemas alignment in the Web of Data
* Privacy and access control in the Web of Data
* Licensing and provenance issues in the Web of Data
* User interaction and usability issues in the Web of Data
* Crawling, caching and querying the Web of Data
* Web of Data search engines
* Web of Data and Artificial General Intelligence
* Case-Based Reasoning in the Web of Data
* Natural language processing applied to the Web of Data


We are thrilled to have Dr. Jerome Euzenat (Research Director at INRIA Lab. of Grenoble)
as our confirmed invited speaker.

Jerome Euzenat (Research Director at INRIA Lab. of Grenoble)

Jerome Euzenat is a senior research scientist at INRIA Grenoble Rh?ne-Alpes, France where he leads the Exmo team associated with the Laboratoire d'informatique de Grenoble.
INRIA is the French national institute for research in computer science and control.
He research interests are related to concurrent representations of the same situation and the relationships among them. It is thus closely related to semantics, understood as the interpretation of representations with regard to their meaning.
He is currently developing research about the exchange of formal knowledge mediated by computers.
This covers formally annotated documents, knowledge servers, content-based cooperative work and transformation and alignment of representations (
More specifically he developed, over the past few years, extensive investigations about ontology matching and alignments encompassing the semantics of alignments
and its use, the software support [David 2011a], matchers, and evaluation of matchers. In collaboration with Pavel Shvaiko, he wrote a book about Ontology matching.
