Call For Papers

1st Workshop on Social Linked Data for Science and Education


This workshop aims at providing a discussion forum for approaches and challenges that are making use of web data resources and technologies,

especially Social Networks, Semantic Web and Linked Data, for science, teaching, learning and education. The SOLISE 2013 workshop angles

for papers about how Social Networks,Lnked Data and Semantic Web can contribute to analyse and adopt data generated by learning enviroments

and education and science communities, to improve personalization, usability and analytics of such content for educational and research purposes

in every day work. We are looking for preliminary results, position, and research papers. Researchers, experts, enthusiasts, and especially

PhD students are welcome and encouraged to submit their contributions.



This is a one day event where instead of classical paper presentations an interactive discussion session with workshop character will be organised. During the session all of the participant will have the chance to share, discuss and exchange the opnions and experiences regarding their own and the work of other workshop participants.
