Services and Applications for Harvesting and Creating Linked Data The World Wide Web has undergone significant changes, developing from a collection of a few interlinked static pages to a global ubiquitous platform for sharing, searching and browsing dynamic and customisable content, in a variety of different media formats. This transformation was triggered by the ever growing number of users and websites and continues to be supported by current developments such as the increased use and popularity of Linked Data and Web APIs. Unfortunately, despite some initial efforts and progress towards integrated use, these two technologies remain mostly disjunct in terms of developing solutions and applications. To this purpose, SALAD aim to explore the possibilities of facilitating a better fusion of Web APIs and Linked Data, thus enabling the harvesting and provisioning of data through applications and services on the Web. In particular, we focus on investigating how both static and dynamic resources (for example, sensor data or streams), exposed via interfaces on the Web, can be used together with semantic data, as means for enabling a shared use and providing a basis for developing rich applications.
How do we address this challenge?
With this workshop, we aim to discover new ways to embrace the opportunities that Web APIs offer in terms of data consumption, processing and provisioning but also to investigate the possibilities of integrating them more closely with Linked Data. We want to challenge researchers towards developing integrated description and implementation approaches through both paper submissions and interactive on-site discussion and dialogue. In particular we are looking for description approaches, formal models, implementation solutions, use cases and applications that support a more automated and unified Web API and Linked Data use.
We offer several opportunities to participate in SALAD:
- long papers: up to 8 pages
- short papers: up to 4 pages
- demos: up to 2 pages
- food for thought: 1 page / slide / web page / image / movie
Accepted papers will be published as CEUR workshop proceedings. Selected papers will be included in a separate ESWC workshop papers volume.
