BLINK will provide a forum where topics related to the evaluation (included, but not limited to, expressive power, usability and performance) of Linked Data Technologies for different steps of the Big Linked Data Chain can be discussed and elaborated upon.
Big Linked Data is starting to enter the new data economy. Systems are constantly being developed in order to support the booming exchange of data (existing in numerous formats) in the Web and the Enterprise. Big Linked Data standards and benchmarks can function as valuable tools to objectively depict and illustrate the level of adequacy and thus performance provided by the existing Linked Data systems.
This workshop aims to bring together a broad range of attendants interested in benchmarking Big Linked Data and aims at identifying collectively the specific needs and challenges of the domain in order to foster interdisciplinary collaborations towards attaining these challenges.
More specifically the objectives of this workshop are to:
create a discussion forum where researchers and industrials can meet and discuss topics related to the performance of Linked Data systems and
expose and initiate discussions on best practices, different application needs and scenarios related to Linked Data management.
