Call for Papers 1st Workshop on Personal Semantic Data: PSD 2010 http://semanticweb.org/wiki/Personal_Semantic_Data co-located with EKAW 2010 11th – 15th October, Lisbon, Portugal
Personal Semantic Data is scattered over several media, and while semantic technologies are already successfully deployed on the Web as well on the desktop, data integration is not always straightforward. The transition from the desktop to a distributed system for Personal Information Management (PIM) raises new challenges which need to be addressed. These challenges overlap areas related to human-computer interaction, privacy and security, information extraction, retrieval and matching.
This workshop will bring together academics and industrial practitioners with the goal of fostering cross-domain collaborations to further advance the use of technologies from the Semantic Web and the Web of Data for PIM and to explore and discuss the challenges and approaches for improving PIM through the use of vast amounts of (semantic) information available online. At the same time we want to provide a platform for discussing research topics and challenges related to personal semantic data.
