The Web is developing from a medium for publishing textual documents into a medium for sharing structured data. This trend is fueled on the one hand by the adoption of the Linked Data principles by a growing number of data providers. On the other hand, large numbers of websites have started to semantically mark up the content of their HTML pages and thus also contribute to the wealth of structured data available on the Web.

The 9th Workshop on Linked Data on the Web (LDOW2016) 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. The special focus of this year’s LDOW workshop will be Web Data Quality Assessment and Web Data Cleansing.

Submissions must be formatted using the ACM SIG template (as per the WWW2016 Research Track) available at or in HTML5 e.g. according to the Linked Research principles. For authoring submission according to the Linked Research principles authors can use dokieli - a decentralized authoring and annotation tooling. HTML5 papers can be submitted by either providing an URL to their paper (in HTML+RDFa, CSS, JavaScript etc.) with supporting files, or an archived zip file including all the material.
