CfP: 1st Social Data on the Web workshop (SDoW2008)


1st Social Data on the Web workshop (SDoW2008)

co-located with
7th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2008)

October 26-27, 2008 - Karlsruhe, Germany


The 1st Social Data on the Web workshop (SDoW2008) co-located
with the 7th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2008)
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 Media.

Important dates
* Submission deadline: Jul 25, 2008
* Notication of acceptance: Sep 05, 2008
* Camera-ready paper submission: Sep 26, 2008
* Camera-ready proceedings: Oct 03, 2008

Since its first steps in 2001, many research issues have been
tackled by the Semantic Web community such as data formalism
for knowledge representation, data querying and scalability,
or reasoning and inferencing. More recently, Web 2.0 offered
new perspectives regarding information sharing, annotation,
and social networking on the Web. It opens new research areas
for the Semantic Web which has an important role to play to
lead to the emergence of a Social Semantic Web that should
provide novel services to end-users, combining the best of
both Semantic Web and Web 2.0 worlds. To achieve this goal,
various tasks and features are needed from data modeling
and lightweight ontologies, to knowledge and social networks
portability as well as ways to interlink data between Social
Media websites, leveraging proprietary data silos to a Giant
Global Graph.

This workshop is intended to bring together people and
organisations interested in applying Semantic Web technologies
to social media sites.

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

* Creating RDF-based knowledge using social media services
* Data Portability and Social Network Portability

and other approaches
* Linked Data on the Social Web: providing linked data from
social media sites
* Ontologies for the Social Web: developing, using and
extending lightweight ontologies for social media sites
* Querying and mining social semantic data
* Policies, authentication, security, and trust within
collaborative scenarios
* Producing Semantic Web data from social software applications
* Reasoning for Social Web applications
* Semantic blogging, wikis and social networks
* Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC)
* Social and semantic bookmarking, tagging and annotation
