Welcome to DMSSW 2012!

First International Workshop
on Data Management in the Social Semantic Web

In conjunction with the 2012 International Conference
on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining
(ASONAM 2012)

Istanbul, Turkey
August 26, 2012

The huge amount of social network data available today is pushing the development of techniques that aim at enabling the study of complex relationships among the members of a social network. At the same time, the Resource Description Framework is an ideal and widespread graph-based framework to represent the semantic content of documents such as Web pages, blogs, tweets, and posts, and their relationships. We refer to the combination of the two worlds as to the Social Semantic Web (SSW). The importance and amount of SSW data are impressively increasing and call for new data management models and tecnhiques.

The first edition of the International Workshop on Data Management in the Social Semantic Web follows the increasing interest in social networks and the Semantic Web and aims at bringing together all those interested in data management in this setting, fostering the collaboration and cross-fertilization between two related communities.

The workshop invites researchers from academia and industry, as well as practitioners, to discuss, propose, and elaborate new approaches to data management in the Social Semantic Web. Running research, results, and experiences on these topics will be presented.
