Call For Papers
The 2009 International Workshop on Social Semantics for Linked Data on
the Web (SSLD2009),
Milan, Italy 15 September 2009

http://semanticweb.org/wiki/SSLD2009

------------
Motivations
------------

The Web is considered as the most important information space in our
modern society. Human beings have been trying to reflect their
interests and life styles on the Web, but the participation in
contributing social content has to date been limited. Web 2.0 plays an
important role in facilitating the participation by providing an
architectural platform to enable linking data in various formats from
various sources. However, the further the data on a system is linked,
the more difficult it becomes to interlink data across heterogeneous
sources. This poses critical problems with connecting data across
different systems.

Social Semantics are believed to lend a hand with overcoming this
situation. In general, the term Social Semantics refers to a
combination of social and semantic technologies. Social Semantic
technologies provide solutions towards bridging the gap between the
Semantic Web and Web 2.0.

The goal of this half-day workshop is to provide a platform for
discussing research topics underlying the concepts of Social Semantics
for Linked Data. Participants can look forward to:

discussing approaches to facilitate socially-aware on the Web;
presenting novel applications that consume Web data;
performing critical research and present practical issues associated
with Social Data and Data Portability of the Web of Data.
By bringing together representatives of academia and industry, the
workshop is also a means for identifying new research problems and
disseminating results of the research and practice.

------------
Topics of interest

The aim of this workshop is to cover all aspects that relate to
research and practical issues of Social Semantics and Linked Data.
