The Web is continuing to develop from a medium for publishing textual documents into a medium for sharing structured data. In 2014, the Web of Linked Data grew to a size of about 1000 datasets with contributions coming from companies, governments and other public sector bodies such as libraries, statistical bodies or research institutions. In parallel, the initiative has found increasing adoption with large numbers of websites semantically marking up the content of their HTML pages.

The 8th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2015) aims to stimulate discussion and further research into the challenges of publishing, consuming, and integrating structured data from the Web as well as mining knowledge from the global Web of Data. In addition to its traditional focus on open web data, the special focus of this year’s LDOW workshop will be the application of Linked Data technologies in enterprise settings as well as the potentials of interlinking closed enterprise data with open data from the Web.
