WebSci09 presentation on interlinking social data

Here are the slides of the presentation I gave last week in Athens at the WebSci09 conference.
The short paper is also available on-line, as well as the complete conference proceedings, papers and posters.


It was a really interesting event and a good opportunity to see what’s happening regarding the Web and how people study and use it, outside the Semantic Web and more generally the Computer Science side of the Web. To that extent, the poster session was particularly interesting, as well as the various talks on law / trust / privacy on the Web.

SPOT2009: A few days left for submission

Due to multiple requests, we just extended the deadline for the
SPOT2009 – Trust and Privacy on the Social and Semantic Web workshop at ESWC09 to 11 March 2009, 11:59pm UTC

Hence, you have a few days left to submit your (short and long) papers as well as demo and application reports, whatever they are theorical or practical contributions to the field of trust and privacy on the Web.

Please note that this is a hard deadline which will not further be extended.

Call for suggested features by the SPARQL Working Group

As already e-mailed and blogged, the SPARQL Working Group is currently gathering a list of features to extend the current state of SPARQL.

Feedback outside the WG is highly welcome, so if you’re using some particular extension or hacked some new features (whatever it is regarding language, protocol, etc.) and you think they should be taken into consideration by the WG, please follow the guidelines and add your own by next tuesday. The WG will then decide which features it will focus on.
