======== Ken North ===========

Come share your expertise with linked data and semantic technologies 
and learn from others at LinkedData Planet in New York City (June 17-18, 

In creating the modern generation of enterprise and web applications, 
we typically integrate information from multiple sources. Relating data 
from disparate sources presents a challenge of deriving information. 
However, semantic tools and technologies are evolving that enable us to 
understand information derived by linking data from different sources, 
including data from applications, databases, ontologies and content 
management systems. Semantic technologies and tools support techniques 
such as tagging online information to make it more readily accessible 
for data integration. This makes it easier to understand data in 
relation to other data, even if some of this data is inside your 
firewall, some is in a business partner's system, and some is part of 
the growing collection of useful publicly available data on the web.

LinkedData Planet provides insights into those technologies that 
enable us to:

    a.. connect data contained in silos within organizations in a 
meaningful way

    b.. extract and correlate data from web sites and databases for 
purposes such as analyzing trends and decision support, customer and 
vendor relationship management, and social networking.

  The concept of linked data is gaining mindshare with developers, users 
and the more than 200 software companies developing semantic tools. 
Organizations such as Adobe, Google, OpenLink Software, Oracle and the 
W3C are pushing the technology, but semantic technology and linked data 
have already surfaced on the web. Notable examples include the Zoominfo 
search engine, the Bambora travel recommendation site, DBpedia, social 
networking sites, semantic web services, various linked data browsers 
and a growing number of sites exposing machine-readable data using 
micro-formats, RDFa, and the data access layers named "SPARQL endpoints" 
after the new W3C query language.

Linked Data Planet sessions will cover topics such as:

    a.. Retrieval technologies: XQuery, SPARQL, and SQL

    b.. Tools, RDF browsers, linked data search engines, publishing 

    c.. Open Data

    d.. Ontologies and OWL

    e.. Semantic web services

    f.. Exploiting social networking technology

    g.. Combining data from SQL databases, GIS and content management 

The LinkedData Planet audience will include system architects, 
enterprise architects, web site designers, software developers, 
consultants and technical managers, all looking to learn more about 
linking the growing collection of available data sources and 
technologies to get more value from their data for their organizations.

Interested speakers should submit a proposal online rather than send a 
paper proposal. We are interested in proposals for one hour technical 
education presentations. Please do not propose a marketing-oriented 
session or product pitch. The deadline for speaker submissions is 
Friday, February 15, 2008.
