Recently, research attention is being progressively shifting from data organization and representation to linkage and composition of the huge amount of data available on the Web. In this context, the Web has evolved from a global information space of linked documents to a global database, where resources are identified (by means of URIs), semantically described (by means of RDF) and connected through RDF links. Linked Data have been made a reality by the Semantic Web technology stack, by the evolution of Web 2.0 and Social Web solutions and by the availability of more and more linked data sources on the Web. The great availability of Linked Data raises data management issues, that must be faced in a dynamic, highly distributed and heterogeneous environment such as the Web. Linked Data can be published, maintained, queried and rapidly combined to build new, value-added applications that fit domain-specific goals.

The Third International Workshop on Linked Web Data Management (LWDM) aims to stimulate participants to discuss about data management issues related to the Linked Data and the relationships with other Semantic Web technologies, proposing new models, languages and applications that exploit the Web as a huge, interlinked, dynamic repository of linked resources.

Topics of interest to this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Linked Web Data Modeling

- Linked Data representation
- Linked Data integration
- Linked Data content creation and annotation
- Context-aware Linked Data management
- Trustworthy and quality-aware Linked Data management
- Database technologies for Linked Data
- Scalable knowledge management on Linked Data
- Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment
- Ontology modeling, reuse, extraction, and evolution

Linked Web Data Querying and Reasoning

- Query languages for Linked Data
- Searching and Ranking Linked Data
- Reasoning paradigms for Linked Data
- Rule interchange formats and rule markup languages
- User-friendly interfaces to query and reason on the Web
- Ranked Keyword search on Semantic Web

Engineering Linked Web Systems

- Adaptive Web systems and applications
- Semantic Web Services and Linked Data services
- Semantic Annotation of Web Systems
- Browsing and visualization of Linked Data on the Web
- Lightweight composition or mashup of Linked Data
- Linked Data and P2P systems
- Enterprise interoperability and Linked Data
- Linked Data applications for real case scenarios

The LWDM Workshop invites researchers, engineers, service developers to present their research and works in the field of Linked Web of Data. Papers may deal with methods, models, case studies, practical experiences and technologies and also work in progress solutions. Accepted papers will be presented by at least one of the authors in sequential sessions, within a full day meeting. An invited talk will be hosted, and a panel session will be held in order to wrap up the workshop and summarize its main results.

Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts, neither submitted nor accepted for publication in any other workshop, conference or journal. We solicit submission of original research, as well as experience and vision papers from both researchers and practitioners, and demonstration papers to demonstrate feasibility of research and its application on real cases. They must be written in English, and formatted using the ACM ( double-column format.

We provide two call for papers:

Research Paper. The suggested number of pages is 8, and the maximum number of pages is 10. Manuscripts not submitted in the ACM style or having more than 10 pages will not be reviewed and thus automatically rejected. The final, camera-ready version must not exceed 8 pages to avoid page charges.

Short Paper. All submitted short paper proposals must be formatted according to the instructions for research submissions and must be no more than 4 pages. This page limit includes all parts of the paper (i.e. title, abstract, body, and bibliography).

Every submitted paper will be carefully reviewed by at least three members of the current program committee and reviews will be returned to the author(s) with comments to ensure the high quality of the accepted papers. Reviewers are not required to read the appendices and the paper should be intelligible without them.

Authors are invited to send their manuscripts as an attachment (PDF/PS format) by using the EasyChair system at Authors have to provide Title, Authors' name and affiliations on the pdf.

Papers will be made available in online conference proceedings, possibly hosted within the ACM Digital Library (subject to approval). Submission to the Workshop implies the willingness to subscribe and participate to the event for presenting the submitted work (i.e. attendance of at least one of the authors of accepted papers will be mandatory). Final versions of accepted papers must strictly adhere to the ACM guidelines and must include a printable file of the camera-ready version, as well as all source files thereof. No changes to such formatting rules are permitted. Authors of accepted papers must also download and sign a copyright form that will be made available on the Web site of the conference.

Depending on the quality of the submissions, authors of selected papers may be invited to submit extended versions for publication in prestigious international journals.
