The 4th International Workshop on Data Engineering Meets the Semantic Web (DESWEB) aims to bring together two separated communities: Semantic Web people and database
systems researchers. There is great potential for mutual learning and cross-fertilization.
Given recent developments on Web-scale semantic graphs and related trends, freeing
up these synergies to tackle the challenges ahead is more important than ever. More details about the mission and goals of the workshop, as well as specific topics of interest can be found on the full call for papers.

As in previous years, DESWEB is co-located with the the annual IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE2013). For issues related to the workshop, you can contact the workshop chairs using the e-mail address
