=========================================================

Objectives
-----------

Many have argued that the next generation of the Web (Web 3.0) will grow 
out of an integration between Semantic Web and Social Web (Web 2.0) 
technologies.Can ontology management benefits from social web? Can 
Wikipidia be a style of collaborative ontology authoring? How to exploit 
user feedback for constructing structured knowledge? In these and many 
other questions lie the opportunity and the challenge to integrate 
knowledge bases approaches to social web ones. This integration involves 
several very different aspects of technology and social practice. Recent 
workshops and journal special issues have been devoted to methods for 
extracting ontologies and other structured knowledge from resources such 
as Wikipedia and other loosely structured data; or on using Semantic Web 
representations to describe the social structures and interactions in 
Web 2.0; or on mapping existing data using semantic technologies. In 
this workshop, we want to focus on another aspect of linkage between 
Social Web and Semantic Web techniques:  collaborative and distributed 
methods for constructing and maintaining ontologies, terminologies, 
vocabularies, and mappings between them, throughout their entire life cycle.

Topics of interest
-------------------

They include (but are not limited to):
- Collaborative creation and editing of structured knowledge
- Collaborative creation of ontology mappings
- Efficient methods for maintenance and evolution of structured 
knowledge that was created collaboratively
- Individual and group incentives for collaborative knowledge 
construction and maintenance
- Ontology repositories, knowledge bases, and their utility in the 
Social Web.
- Metadata management
- User interfaces for collaborative tools for creating structured knowledge
- Inconsistency management and user-specific views of ontologies
- Workflows for collaborative construction and linking of structured 
knowledge
- Evaluation of collaborative tools: methods, metrics, and experimental 
reports
