John Domingue (The Open University, UK) is co-organising a workshop on Linked Data on the Web and its Relationship to Distributed Ledgers (LDOW/LDDL). The workshop will be held in the context of the Web Conference (WWW 2019). The Web Conference 2019 will be hosted in San Francisco, California, on May 13-17 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Web. Some major contributors to the Web’s history are expected to attend, including the inventor of the Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who is also among the organisers of the LDOW/LDDL workshop.
The LDOW/LDDL workshop will be stimulating discussion and further research into the challenges of publishing, consuming, and integrating structured data from the Web, covering established topics of the Linked Data on the Web (LDOW) community. As this year’s edition represents the coming together of the established Workshop on Linked Data On the Web (LDOW) with Workshop on Linked Data and Distributed Ledgers we’ll additionally address the question of how distributed ledgers could help towards solving some of these challenges, and how Linked Data technologies may help distributed ledgers to become more open and interoperable.
