[InetBib] Veranstaltungshinweis: PhD Workshop auf der SWIB am 25.11.2013 in Hamburg

Liebe Liste,

erlauben Sie mir bitte unten stehenden Veranstaltungshinweis, Mehrfachempfang 
bitte ich zu entschuldigen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Publikationstechnologien (IIPT) / ZBW - Leibniz-Informationszentrum Wirtschaft 
/ Düsternbrooker Weg 120, 24105 Kiel / t.borst@xxxxxx

In conjunction with this year's SWIB13 conference (http://swib.org), there will 
be a PhD Workshop hosted. The workshop provides an excellent opportunity both 
for the beginner as well as the advanced PhD student to present her or his 
ideas and receive feedback by experienced researchers and other PhD students 
working in research areas related to Linked Data based infrastructures and 
applications in libraries.
The Linked Open Data approach aims at a framework for the generation, 
publishing and sharing of information by means of semantic technologies. It 
plays a vital role in the realization of the Semantic Web at a global scale by 
publishing and interlinking diverse data sources on the Web. The access to a 
huge amount of Linked Data presents exciting opportunities for the next 
generation of Web-based applications, especially with regard to data hosted and 
provided by libraries. Facing use cases as depicted by the Library Linked Data 
Incubator Group, however there is still a need of Linked Data applications and 
best practice examples.
For this PhD workshop, we would like to discuss the initial ideas about issues 
in Linked Open Data that have proven to be both promising and challenging in 
the context of library use cases and applications. Topics of interest include 
but are certainly not limited to:

Linked Open Data Publishing
- Triplification of existing (structured) data
- Datasets relevant for knowledge engineering and scholarly communication 
(Metadata, research data, usage data,...)
- Vocabularies, taxonomies, schemas and mappings
- Case studies of Linked Open Data integration and interlinking

Linked Open Data Consumption
- Querying, searching and browsing Linked Open Data
- Simplified user interfaces and techniques for Linked Open Data presentation
- Identity management and disambiguation of resources
- Data mining and Big Data environments
- AI oriented approaches towards reasoning and brokering of Linked Open Data

Linked Open Data application development
- Linked Open Data and Web 2.0
- Semantic annotation and tagging
- Social Semantic Search
- Microforamts, microdata and schema.org elements for semantic representation
- Deep Web and Linked Open Data

For other relevant topics, please have a look at the conference announcement 
at http://swib.org/swib13/ ;. The workshop welcomes submissions by PhD 
candidates working on these topics, with a background in libraries and related 

The workshop is open to all PhD students. PhD students at the beginning of 
their work are particularly welcome when they have a well-defined problem 
statement and some ideas about the solution that they want to discuss.

Submission Guidelines:
The submissions should consist of up to one page. It must be structured 
according to the following criteria:
Name, affiliation and contact details of the PhD student
Name(s) of the supervisor(s)
Summary of the research project, including:
- Working title
- Problem Statement: research questions, motivation
- Approach: planned approach and methodology to solve problem statement
- Current status of the work and preliminary results that have already been 
reached plus outlook to future work
- A list of key questions that are to be discussed during the event
Please submit your work using our website
