  • 6th International Workshop on
    Linked Web Data Management


One Day of Inspiration!

March 2016, Bordeaux, France

The sixth edition of the International Workshop on Linked Web Data Management (LWDM) maintains the same goal of the previous editions, aiming at stimulating participants to discuss about data management issues related to the Linked Data and the relationships with other Semantic Web technologies, and at the same time proposes a glance at new issues.

The Vision

The joint application of Data Management and Semantic Web competencies, through the design of new models, languages and tools, has turned out to be very useful to enable the use of the Web as a huge, interlinked, dynamic repository of linked resources.


The LWDM Workshop invites researchers, engineers, service developers to present their research and work in the field of Linked Data. Papers may deal with methods, models, case studies, practical experiences and technologies and also work in progress solutions.

Co-Located Workshop

This year the LWDM workshop will be co-organized with the Fourth International Workshop on Querying Graph Structured Data (GraphQ 2016)

Call for Papers

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts, neither submitted nor accepted for publication in any other workshop, conference or journal. Papers must be written in English, and formatted using the ACM double-column format. Authors are invited to send their manuscripts as an attachment (PDF/PS format) by using the EasyChair system (http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lwdm2016). They have to indicate authors' names and affiliations.
Full Papers cannot exceed 8 pages in length, while Short Papers cannot exceed 4 pages in length. Nevertheless, authors are allowed to include extra material beyond the 8 pages (or 4 pages) as a clearly marked appendix, which reviewers are not obliged to read but could read if they feel it is useful.
Every submitted paper will be carefully reviewed by at least three members of the current program committee and reviews will be returned to the author(s) with comments to ensure the high quality of the accepted papers. Reviewers are not required to read the appendices and the paper should be intelligible without them.

For any inquiries or questions please contact lwdm2016@easychair.org.

Important Dates:

Abstract Research Paper submission: 11st December, 2015
Research and Short Paper submission: 18th December, 2015
Author notification: January 15th, 2016
Camera-ready paper submission: January 22th, 2016
Workshop date: March 15th, 2016

All deadlines close at 23:59 (11:59pm) Hawaii time.
