November 9, 2014, Chiang Mai, Thailand, co-located with JIST2014 Conference


Linked Data is now recognized as one of the prominent ways for publishing data on the web. Even though Linked Data Technology is the results of the long-term development in Semantic Web Community, it is not easy to deploy it to the real problems and often needs to develop it to adapt them. In order to facilitate practical use of linked data and semantic web technologies, it is necessary to manage information and to identify meaningful and well-structured knowledge on the Web. Applying ontology to augment publishing and analyzing semantic data is one of the most important research areas. Ontology and ontology-based application can enhance modeling and processing of the semantic data, especially the data in specific domains, in terms of data integration, interoperability, reusability and intelligence. 

In this workshop, we want to share the experience and solutions to apply Linked Data and Ontology Technology to the real problems. We welcome not only researchers but also engineers, practitioners, and project managers who commit projects to develop Linked Data and Ontology in practice.

The previous version of this workshop was known as the Joint International Workshop on 2013 Linked Data in Practice Workshop (LDPW2013) and 2013 Practical Application of Ontology for Semantic Data Engineering (PAOS2013).

Invited Talk

  • The DaPaaS Platform: Data-as-a-Service Solution for Open Data
Dr. Dumitru Roman, SINTEF ICT, Norway

Abstract: Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) is emerging as a new paradigm for cost-effective and agile data provisioning, promising to simplify data management for organizations with limited expertise in the field, and to reduce the costs for data integration, publishing and consumption. This presentation will provide a brief overview of existing relevant DaaS solutions, with a focus on Open Data and the DaPaaS Platform ( --- an emerging open DaaS solution for Open Data. The goal of this presentation is to familiarize the audience with the DaaS concept, the emerging solutions in this domain, and to provide an overview of the DaPaaS platform.

Bio: Dr. Dumitru Roman works as a Senior Research Scientist at SINTEF ICT, Oslo, Norway. He is currently involved in research around simplification of data access, integration, and data publication and consumption at large scale. He currently acts as the DaPaaS project coordinator ( – a project developing a Data- and Process-as-a-Service for simplifying access to data and data-intensive applications. He holds an adjunct associate professorship at the University of Oslo, Norway.
