Call for Participation: WOD-PD 2008

                  WOD-PD 2008 Call for Participation

                   WEB OF DATA PRACTITIONERS DAYS
                  22-23 October 2008, Vienna, Austria
                     http://www.webofdata.info/

The Web of Data Practitioners Days is a new application-oriented event  
for
Semantic Web practitioners and interested newcomers. It is intended to
communicate the results of the past years' semantic systems activities  
to a
broader audience, especially to practitioners from industry and  
academia.
In a cooperative effort, four major Austrian institutions, which have
actively been conducting research in that area throughout the past  
years,
will set the stage for this event.

Participants will have the opportunity to see how semantic  
technologies may
improve and enhance existing Web-based software systems and how the  
Web of
Data will provide a completely new paradigm of managing globally
interlinked information. As a result, attendees will get a better idea
about the practical benefits of semantic solutions and researchers  
obtain
valuable feedback for further research directions aiming at productivity
and applicability of the existing technology for real-world use cases.
