    ABSTRACT: Semantically annotating and interlinking Open Data results in Linked Open Data which concisely and unambiguously describes a knowledge domain. However, the uptake of the Linked Data depends on its usefulness to non-Semantic Web experts. Failing to support data consumers understanding the added-value of Linked Data and possible exploitation opportunities could inhibit its diffusion. In this paper, we propose an interactive visual workflow for discovering and exploring Linked Open Data. We implemented the workflow considering academic library metadata and carried out a qualitative evaluation. We assessed the workflow's potential impact on data consumers which bridges the offer as published Linked Open Data, and the demand as requests for: (i) higher quality data; and (ii) more applications that re-use data. More than 70% of the test users agreed that the workflow fulfills its goal: it facilitates non-Semantic Web experts to understand the potential of Linked Open Data.

    ABSTRACT: The advent of Web 2.0 has been instrumental in paradigm shift of how people communicate? These communications are a rich source of relationship data. Analyzing such a vast amount of relationship data is not a trivial task. Social Network Analysis is a promising field of research to take advantage of this huge pool of relationship data. But before this data is analyzed from Social Network Analysis perspective, Social Networks have to be extracted from this data. Social network extraction deals with the extraction of online social networks from a wide variety of online resources. These resources include web documents, e-mail communication, Internet relay chats, web usage logs, event logs, instant messenger logs, online blogs etc. Social network extraction is beneficial for many Web mining and social network applications such as expert finding for research guidance, potential speakers and contributors for conferences, journals, workshops, product recommendation, targeted advertising etc. In the last decade, many efforts have been made in the area of social network extraction. As a result, a good number of social network extraction methods have been proposed in the literature. These social network extraction methods use different sources for social network extraction. Some of these systems also use data from more than one resource. Although there are some social network extraction methods which construct a social network manually and as such cannot be considered in this work, as we deal with automatic methods only. In this paper, we classify automatic methods for social network extraction on the basis of information source they use. We also outline a general framework for social network extraction and give some future directions.

    ABSTRACT: The Information Inference Framework presented in this paper provides a general-purpose suite of tools enabling the definition and execution of flexible and reliable data processing workflows whose nodes offer application-specific processing capabilities. The IIF is designed for the purpose of processing big data, and it is implemented on top of Apache Hadoop-related technologies to cope with scalability and high-performance execution requirements. As a proof of concept we will describe how the framework is used to support linking and contextualization services in the context of the OpenAIRE infrastructure for scholarly communication.
