3rd International Workshop on Consuming Linked Data (COLD2012)
co-located with
11th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2012)
Boston, MA, USA

The quantity of published Linked Data is increasing dramatically. However, applications that consume Linked Data are not yet widespread. Current approaches lack methods for seamless integration of Linked Data from multiple sources, dynamic discovery of available data and data sources, provenance and information quality assessment, application development environments, and appropriate end user interfaces. Addressing these issues requires well-founded research, including the development and investigation of concepts that can be applied in systems which consume Linked Data from the Web. Following the success of the 1st and 2nd International Workshop on Consuming Linked Data, we organize the third edition of this workshop in order to provide a platform for discussion and work on these open research problems. The main objective is to provide a venue for scientific discourse — including systematic analysis and rigorous evaluation — of concepts, algorithms and approaches for consuming Linked Data.

For further information about the workshop, please contact the workshops chairs at


Relevant topics for COLD 2012 include but are not limited to:

* Live Linked Data (i.e., algorithms and applications that make use of Linked Data at runtime)
* Architectures for consuming Linked Data (e.g., Dataspaces)
* Handling additional web data (e.g., microformats, microdata,, APIs, JSON, Open Graph Protocol, Twitter Cards...)
* Web scale data management (indexing, crawling, etc.)
* Query processing over multiple linked datasets
* Search in the Web of Data
* Auto-discovery of URIs and data
* Caching and replication
* Dataset dynamics
* Reasoning on Linked Data from multiple sources
* Information quality and trustworthiness of Linked Data
* User interface research for the interaction with the Web of Data


Paper submission deadline: July 31, 2012, 23.59 Hawaii time
Acceptance notification: August 21, 2012
Camera-ready versions of accepted papers: September 10, 2012
Workshop date: November, 2012


We seek novel technical research papers in the context of consuming Linked Data with a length of up to 12 pages. Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Please submit your paper via EasyChair at Submissions that do not comply with the formatting of LNCS or that exceed the page limit will be rejected without review. We note that the author list does not need to be anonymized, as we do not have a double-blind review process in place. Submissions will be peer reviewed by three independent reviewers. Accepted papers have to be presented at the workshop proceedings. Proceedings will be published online at CEUR-WS.
