       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.
