Table of Contents

The Web is developing from a medium for publishing textual documents into a medium for sharing structured data. This trend is fueled on the one hand by the adoption of the Linked Data principles by a growing number of data providers. On the other hand, large numbers of websites have started to semantically mark up the content of their HTML pages and thus also contribute to the wealth of structured data available on the Web.

The 11th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2018) aims to stimulate discussion and further research into the challenges of publishing, consuming, and integrating structured data from the Web as well as mining knowledge from the global Web of Data.

We seek the following kinds of contributions:

  • Full scientific articles: up to 10 ‘pages’
  • Short scientific and position articles: up to 5 ‘pages’

Articles SHOULD be formatted and made available in HTML, where the use of Linked Data is strongly encouraged. Publish datasets and similar results in a publicly accessible repository and available as Linked Data. For authoring along the lines of the Linked Research initiative, authors may want to use dokieli (see also source). Publish your article on the Web, and send us the URL. You are welcome to share it via community chat. There are a variety of examples in the wild. See the Linked Open Research Cloud for further details on how to make your article discoverable.

Articles MAY be formatted in using ACM SIG template. Please submit these contributions via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ldow2018.

LDOW encourages Open Peer Review, and RECOMMEND that authors and reviewers are named and attributed; however authors or reviewers MAY be anonymous if so desired. Reviewers SHOULD make their Open Reviews available using the same guidelines as the research articles.

All contributions will be archived at Internet Archive.

Accepted contributions will be presented at the workshop and included in the workshop proceedings. At least one author of each article is expected to register for the workshop and attend to present their contribution.
