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

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.
