++++ LinkedData Planet Call for Speakers ++++

Come share your expertise with linked data and semantic technologies and learn
from others at LinkedData Planet in New York City (June 17-18, 2008).

In creating the modern generation of enterprise and web applications, we
typically integrate information from multiple sources. Relating data from
disparate sources presents a challenge of deriving information. However,
semantic tools and technologies are evolving that enable us to understand
information derived by linking data from different sources, including data from
applications, databases, ontologies and content management systems. Semantic
technologies and tools support techniques such as tagging online information to
make it more readily accessible for data integration. This makes it easier to
understand data in relation to other data, even if some of this data is inside
your firewall, some is in a business partner's system, and some is part of the
growing collection of useful publicly available data on the web.

LinkedData Planet provides insights into those technologies that enable us to:

  -  connect data contained in silos within organizations in a meaningful way

  -  extract and correlate data from web sites and databases for purposes such
as analyzing trends and decision support, customer and vendor relationship
management, and social networking.

The concept of linked data is gaining mindshare with developers, users and the
more than 200 software companies developing semantic tools. Organizations such
as Adobe, Google, Oracle and the W3C are pushing the technology, but semantic
technology and linked data have already surfaced on the web. Notable examples
include the Zoominfo search engine, the Bambora travel recommendation site,
DBpedia, social networking sites, semantic web services, OpenLink RDF browsers
and a growing number of sites exposing machine-readable data using
micro-formats, RDFa, and the data access layers named "SPARQL endpoints" after
the new W3C query language.

Linked Data Planet sessions will cover topics such as:

  - Retrieval technologies: XQuery, SPARQL, and SQL

  - Tools, RDF browsers, linked data search engines, publishing tools

  - Open Data

  - Ontologies and OWL

  - Semantic web services

  - Exploiting social networking technology

  - Combining data from SQL databases, GIS and content management systems

The LinkedData Planet audience will include system architects, enterprise
architects, web site designers, software developers, consultants and technical
managers, all looking to learn more about linking the growing collection of
available data sources and technologies to get more value from their data for
their organizations.

Interested speakers should submit a proposal online rather than send a paper
proposal. We are interested in proposals for one hour technical education
presentations. Please do not propose a marketing-oriented session or product
pitch. The deadline for speaker submissions is Friday, February 15, 2008.

When:                        June 17-18, 2008
Where:                       Roosevelt Hotel
