One of the biggest challenges in Computer Science is the exploitation of
the Web as a global platform for data and information integration as
well as for intelligent search and querying. Semantic Web technologies
and particularly the Linked Data paradigm have evolved as powerful
enablers for the enrichment of the current document-oriented Web with a
Web of interlinked data and, ultimately, a the Semantic Web. To
facilitate this transition many aspects of distributed data and
information management need to be adapted, advanced and integrated.


We invite original contributions on topics related to the Semantic Web,
including (but not limited to):

* Linked Data on the Web as well as in the enterprise
* RDF stores and repositories
* RDF data publishing and access
* Querying and searching Semantic Web Data, including combinations with
  statistics, natural language, soft computing and distributed
* Methods for linking, integrating and federating Data on the Web
* Semantic annotation and metadata
* Community and social mechanisms for the definition of semantics of
  data, and metadata and ontology creation
* Ontologies, Reasoning and representation languages (such as OWL), as
  they pertain to Web needs
* Re-purposing of data, information, and multimedia using semantics
* Applications of Semantic Web formats for enterprises, learning and
* Other novel applications that exploit structured Web data sources
* Blogs, wikis, browsers, crawlers, harvesters, content management
  systems, search engines and other applications that produce and
  consume Semantic Web Data
* Mobile and ubiquitous applications exploiting semantics
* User interfaces for interacting with Semantic Web Data
* Methodologies for the engineering of Semantic Web applications
