LODStats: The Data Web Census Dataset
by Ivan Ermilov et al.
Presented by: Ivan Ermilov
Abstract: Over the past years, the size of the Data Web has increased significantly, which makes obtaining general insights into its growth and structure both more challenging and more desirable. The lack of such insights hinders important data management tasks such as quality, privacy and coverage analysis. In this paper, we present the LODStats dataset, which provides a comprehensive picture of the current state of a significant part of the Data Web. LODStats is based on RDF datasets from data.gov, publicdata.eu and datahub.io data catalogs and at the time of writing lists over 9 000 RDF datasets. For each RDF dataset, LODStats collects comprehensive statistics and makes these available in adhering to the LDSO vocabulary. This analysis has been regularly published and enhanced over the past five years at the public platform lodstats.aksw.org. We give a comprehensive overview over the resulting dataset.
OpenAccess at Leipzig University
Invited talk by Dr. Astrid Vieler from Leipzig University Library (UBL). The talk will be about Open Access in general and the Open Access Policy of our University in special. She will tell us more about our right, which we have toward the publishers, and she gives us advice and hints on how we can increase the visibility of our publications.
After the talks, there is more time for discussion in smaller groups as well as coffee and cake. The colloquium starts at 3 p.m. and is located on 7th floor (Leipzig, Augustusplatz 10, Paulinum).
