Call For Papers

The Web of Linked Data is continuously growing enriched by data coming from companies, governments and other public sector institutions. In parallel, advances in technologies and applications such as smart mobile devices, data analytics, and social networks, are contributing to the exponential growth of the data over the Web. By processing, analyzing and correlating captured data one can identify relationships among individuals that may denote privacy issues and in some cases be misused. Even anonymized , these data when linked with other data may lead to the individuals to which specific data items are related. Governmental or public organization agencies often need to exchange data set across different organizations making these data available to many other parties. Over the time and although information may be trapped in different silos detail user mobility information may be collected and misused or stolen which may lead to privacy and security concerns.

The goal of this workshop is to attract cyber security researchers, industry practitioners, policy makers, and users who have interest and research work in the linked data approaches, to exchange ideas, techniques and tools, and share experience related to all practical and theoretical aspects of Linked data privacy and security. The workshop seeks original high-quality technical papers from academia, government, and industry. Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Evaluating quality and trustworthiness of linked data
- Tracking provenance and usage of linked data
- Data anonymization
- Authentication, security and access control for linked urban or eGovernement data
- Smart tools/services for integrated urban or eGovernment data
- Linked data application in eGovernement
- Semantics, linked data, vocabularies and best practices
- Security, trust, privacy, and policies

The workshop will take place on August 07, 2015, Shanghai, China, which is a global financial center and a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple and Yu Garden.
