Linked Data session at the Future Internet Assembly (FIA)
16th of December, Ghent, Belgium
http://semanticweb.org/wiki/LinkedDataFIA2010 (this call)
http://www.fi-ghent.eu (the FIA in Ghent event)
http://www.future-internet.eu (the general initiative)
Short position papers (1-10 pages LNCS) are due on *30th November 2010*
(Although appreciated authors are *not* required to attend the event.)
The Future Internet sparked the interest of many different communities.
All of these communities develop specific parts of infrastructure, which
at one point of time need to be able to interoperate. Unfortunately,
currently the Future Internet architecture does not include means to
achieve interoperability at a data level. At the same time Linked Data
is becoming an accepted best practice to exchange information in an
interoperable and reusable fashion. Many different communities on the
Internet use Linked Data standards to provide and exchange interoperable
information. This is strikingly confirmed by the dramatically growing
Linked Data cloud and the currently more than 25 billion facts
represented and interconnected therein with exponential growth rates
both in terms of data sets and contained data.
The OSI/OSI 7-Layer architecture is a conceptual view on networking
architectures. One possible view is a look at Linked Data as an
independent layer in the Internet architecture, on top of the networking
layer, but below the application layers, since it provides a common data
model for all applications as shown in the figure below. This session
investigates this view, what implications this imposes on the Future
Internet Architecture, but also how future architectures and system
developments can benefit from this new layer.
We are looking for position papers regarding the use of Linked Data in
the Future Internet. These can be either concrete current use-cases or
envisioned usages for the topics relevant for the Future Internet
(examples include: Internet of Things, embedded systems, FIRE, services,
smart cities., Open Government Data, Future Internet Architecture and
others). The papers provide an input for the ongoing discussion on the
role of Linked Data for the Future Internet.
Your position paper should have between 1 and 10 pages. We encourage
authors to comply with the Springer LNCS format.
Position papers can be submitted until 30th November 2010 (in HTML or
PDF) via email to FutureInternet at SemanticWeb.org.
The session’s organizers reserve the right to do a relevance check of
submitted position papers and reject papers, which are clearly not
relevant to the topic outlined above.
Submitted position papers will be published on a website related to the
Future Internet Assembly Linked Data Session and may influence further
developments in the Future Internet space.
