Web of Linked Entities (WoLE2012)
- http://wole2012.eurecom.fr

In conjunction with the 11th International Semantic Web Conference
(ISWC2012), Boston, November 11th 2012

The WoLE 2012 workshop envisions the Semantic Web as a Web of Linked
Entities (WoLE), which transparently connects the World Wide Web (WWW) and
the Giant Global Graph (GGG) using methods from Information Retrieval (IR)
and Natural Language Processing (NLP). The focus of this workshop is to
reconcile the communities of Information Retrieval, Semantic Web and NLP.
The primary goal is to strengthen research techniques that provide access
to textual information published on the Web to further improve the adoption
of Semantic Web technology.

Fabian M. Suchanek – “From Big Data to Good Data”

Abstract - Recent years have seen great progress in making data available
in structured form on the Web. The Linked Open data initiative, notably, as
well as advances in information extraction,
have contributed to larger and larger amounts of knowledge available on the
Semantic Web. But is what we are all doing really good? In this talk, I
will go beyond the quantity of the data, and look at the quality instead. I
will discuss challenges and open issues on the path from "big data" to
"good data".
