Linked Science @ ISWC 2011, October 24th, 2011

The 1st International Workshop on Linked Science 2011 (LISC 2011) will be collocated with the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2011) in Bonn, Germany October 24th, 2011! 

In the LISC 2011 we will discuss and present results of new ways of publishing, sharing, linking, and analyzing scientific resources motivated by driving scientific requirements, as well as reasoning over the data to discover interesting new links  and scientific insights.
