Overview

Social media and the semantic web only co-existed in the past, but when these developments became 
massively popular, they began to have an influence on collaborative working. Learners and online 
workers now have a variety of knowledge resources at hand. Integrated semantic applications, linked 
data, social networks, and networked digital solutions can now be used in collaborative learning 
environments and present participants with the context-aware information that they need.

Semantic technologies have shown their potential for integrating valuable knowledge bases and 
information systems, and they are being applied to the composition of digital learning and working 
platforms. These semantic technologies not only have potential for solving the semantic 
heterogeneity of knowledge resources, trust, and accountability, but also provide solutions for 
contemporary data quality management cycles, which are necessary to ensure the high-quality 
integration of shared knowledge resources.

Objectives

The primary goal of the book is to showcase cutting edge research on the intersection of Semantic 
Web, Collaborative Work, and Social Media. For example:

How can richly structured Semantic Web data and existing semantic web technologies together build 
next-generation systems for collaborative work?
How could knowledge management techniques contribute to the full realization of integrated semantic 
applications?
What are the challenges for developers of social systems with integrated semantic web data?

Audience

The book addresses researchers and practitioners in the fields of semantic web, knowledge 
management, data integration, and data quality management by summarizing recent research results.

Developer of systems in the area of semantic web, knowledge management, and data integration are 
addressed as well and will get an overview on semantic web, knowledge management, and collaboration.

The topics of interest of the book include, but are not limited to:

Social Media

Submission Process

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before November 1, 2010, a 2-3 page 
chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors 
of accepted proposals will be notified by December 1, 2010  about the status of their proposals and 
sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by March 1, 2011. All submitted 
chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to 
serve as reviewers for this project.
