1st Workshop on Personal Semantic Data: PSD 2010

co-located with EKAW 2010

11th - 15th October, Lisbon, Portugal

Personal Semantic Data is scattered over several media, and while semantic
technologies are already successfully deployed on the Web as well on the
desktop, data integration is not always straightforward. The transition from the
desktop to a distributed system for Personal Information Management (PIM) raises
new challenges which need to be addressed. These challenges overlap areas
related to human-computer interaction, privacy and security, information
extraction, retrieval and matching.

This workshop will bring together academics and industrial practitioners with
the goal of fostering cross-domain collaborations to further advance the use of
technologies from the Semantic Web and the Web of Data for PIM and to explore
and discuss the challenges and approaches for improving PIM through the use of
vast amounts of (semantic) information available online. At the same time we
want to provide a platform for discussing research topics and challenges related
to personal semantic data.

9 July 2010 - Submission deadline
9 August 2010 - Notification
27 August 2010 - Camera-ready version

== TOPICS ==
The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

* Bridging the gap between Semantic Desktop Data and Linked (Open) Data
-Interlinking personal desktop data with Semantic Web data
-Enriching desktop information with Web data
-Publishing semantic personal data from the desktop to the Web, including
trust and privacy issues
-Mapping and synchronizing personal semantic data from heterogeneous sources
-New forms of visualization of mashed and hybrid personal data from the
desktop and Web

* Managing personal data across heterogeneous social media sites
-Mapping and synchronizing personal social data across heterogeneous social
media and the desktop
-Searching and browsing personal social data across heterogeneous data sources
and using heterogeneous interfaces (e.g. mobile devices)
-Modeling of semantic information for personal and social use

* Generation of personal semantic data from novel sources
-Semi-automatic and automatic generation of semantic data from personal
-Fusion of mobile and desktop environments
-Interlinking newly generated semantic data with existing sources

We encourage full papers (max 12 pages), short paper (max 6 pages) and short
demo papers (max 2 pages) describing significant work in progress, late breaking
results or ideas / challenges for the domain. Submissions should follow the LNCS

Papers should be submitted in pdf format to
no later than midnight Pacific Daylight Time on July 9, 2010.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
