CALL FOR PAPERS:
The 2nd International Workshop on Dataset PROFIling & fEderated Search for Linked Data (PROFILES’15)
Co-located with 12th ESWC Conference (ESWC 2015), May 31 – June 4, 2015.
Venue: Portoroz, Slovenia.
Date: June 1 , 2015
The PROFILES’15 workshop aims to gather innovative query and search approaches for large-scale, distributed and heterogeneous linked datasets inline with dedicated approaches to analyse, describe and discover endpoints, as an inherent task of query distribution. PROFILES’15 will equally consider both novel scientific methods and techniques for querying, assessment, profiling, and curation of distributed datasets as well as the application perspective, such as the innovative use of tools and methods for providing structured knowledge about distributed datasets, their evolution and fundamentally, means to search and query the Web of Data. The workshop will provide a highly interactive forum for researchers in the fields of Semantic Web and Linked Data, Databases, Semantic Search, Text Mining, NLP and Information Retrieval.
The main areas of interest of PROFILES’15 include dataset/endpoint analysis, profiling and discovery along with techniques for distributed semantic search that take such profiles into account. In particular this includes:
Dataset/endpoint analysis, profiling and discovery:
dataset profile representation (vocabularies, schemas)
novel applications and techniques for dataset profiling
automated approaches to dataset analysis and exploration
analysis/monitoring of dataset and graph dynamics
topic profiling of datasets
assessment of dataset schema conformance and evolution
dataset quality analysis for query routing
Distributed semantic search:
query routing taking into account relevance and quality of distributed datasets
semantic annotation and expansion for keyword queries
keyword query interpretation and disambiguation for Linked Data
fusing, cleaning, ranking and refining search results
scalability & performance of distributed data queries
novel applications for federated search over Linked Data
March 19, 2015 (Extended): Full & short research paper, poster & demo submission deadline
April 3, 2015: Notification of acceptance
April 17, 2015: Camera-ready paper
We welcome the following types of contributions:
Short (up to 6 pages) and full (up to 15 pages) research papers
Poster abstracts and system demonstrations should not exceed 4 pages
All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS proceedings style. Each submission will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the PC. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF format via the Easychair system:
The complete set of papers will be published with the CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org), listed by the DBLP. The best papers of the workshop will be included in the supplementary proceedings of ESWC 2015, which will appear in the Springer LNCS series.
