The early days of data governance
The second-generation Web (2.0) is a complex socio-technical system of unforeseen growth and dynamics. On-line communities emerge and interact all around a usually self-organising manner supported by interactive applications, including bookmarking, tagging, blogging, and wikis, being developed and shared at little or no cost. The emerging range of Semantic Web and other open technologies promises an increase in scale and maturity of knowledge sharing, achieved through collaboration and integration within and between diverse communities.
Considering the current pace of social and technological development, it seems that the transformation of the Web from a network of separately siloed applications and content repositories to a more seamless and semantically interoperable ecosystem is at hand, opening a wide range of scientific challenges and opportunities. However, while simple, the idea of the Semantic Web remains largely unrealised.
Semantic interoperability is the ability of two or more information systems or their (computerised) components to…

CALL FOR PAPERS
*The 12th International Conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE 2013)*
(10-11 Sept 2013, Graz, Austria)
Pieter De Leenheer — VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands & Collibra NV, Belgium
Dejing Dou — University of Oregon, USA
Haixun Wang — Microsoft Research Asia, China
Prof. Dr. Manfred Hauswirth — Vice-Director of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), Ireland
The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE’13) provides a forum on the use of ontologies and data semantics in novel applications. Of particular relevance to ODBASE 2013 are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as databases, social networks, mobile systems, artificial intelligence, information retrieval, and computational linguistics. We also encourage the submission of research and practical experience papers concerning scale issues in ontology management, information integration, and information extraction, as well as papers that examine the information needs of various applications. This year, in addition to its traditional focus on the management of semantically rich information, ODBASE will have special themes on Semantic Data Mining and Information Governance.
We encourage submissions in areas that connect semantics with the entire data flow cycle: data acquisition e.g. from social networks and mobile devices, data stream processing, e.g., filtering and event contextualization, data analysis,e.g., pattern and knowledge discovery, to dissemination, e.g., publish/subscribe.
ODBASE’13 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event “On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2013 (OnTheMove’13)” that co-locates three conferences: ODBASE’13, DOA-SVI’13 (International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures), and CoopIS’13(International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems).
*TOPICS OF INTEREST*
Specific areas of interest to ODBASE’13 include but are not limited to:
Management of Semantically Expressive Information
– Semantic data modeling
– Semantic integration, including ontology matching, merging, etc.
– Ontology engineering and metadata management
– Ontology-based data management
– Governance aspects such as workflows, roles and responsibilities in semantic information management
Large Scale and Complex Information Management and Analysis
– Semantic indexing, search and query answering in large volumes of data
– Annotation, extraction, summarization, and integration of heterogeneous data resources
– Semantic data mining
– Semantic social network analysis
– Semantic services for big data
Semantic Management of Complex Event Processing
– Semantics in event-driven architectures
– Event algebras, event schemas and type systems
– Event-driven business process management
– Events in social sensing&Collective Intelligence
Applications, Evaluations, and Experiences in the following domains:
– Web 2.0 and Semantic Web,
– Linked Data Web
– Online Social Networks
– Hypertext, multimedia, and hypermedia
– Enterprise-wide Information Systems
– eCommerce, eScience, and Virtual Organizations
– Ubiquitous and Mobile Information Systems
– Information Governance
Conference Abstract Submission Deadline: May 11, 2013
Conference Paper Submission Deadline: May 18, 2013
Acceptance Notification: June 25, 2013
Camera Ready Due: July 16, 2013
Author Registration Due: July 16, 2013
ODBASE 2013 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished results. Experience papers must describe existing, real-world scale systems; preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in wide experimental and industry use.
Papers submitted to ODBASE’13 must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the program committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the case of practice reports. All submissions must be in English. Submissions must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper style. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format. Paper submission site: http://www.onthemove-conferences.org/index.php/odbase13
The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found at:http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
Our claims for the World Wide Value Web:
- Our world is a large-scale non-linear network of rich relationships between technologies, people, and organisations, emerging from the Web.
- Web relationships are a catalyst for innovation, i.e., a Value Web, that organisations should harness to devise new forms of value co-creation. To this end, enterprises must abandon value-chain thinking.
- One challenge is to articulate the structure and composition of value objects inherent to these relationships that would lead them to gravitate towards unanticipated value propositions.
- Presuming service-centric thinking, and non-linear patterns of the Web, Service Value Networks (SVNs) lie at the center of this gravitation; forming the hubs of the Value Web.
- (Service) Value Web technologies should embody generative principles similar to those that lead to the success of the Web itself. In other words, Internet-based SVN technologies should allow for unanticipated contribution of value (through service) to the Web by enabling anyone to share and trade their value objects, just like previous generations of the Web did for knowledge and social sharing.
