    ======== 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.

    Where: Roosevelt Hotel
    New York City, New York
