DiSCo '08 is a new workshop that focuses on the research of data management with the background of social computing and data semantics. It is another attempt of bridging the gap between Semantic Web and Web 2.0.

I am one of the PC co-chairs of the workshop. Along with me are James Caverlee from Texas A&M University and Ying Ding from University of Innsbruck. Besides, we are honored to have Stefan Decker from National University of Ireland and Ling Liu from Georgia Institute of Technology as the general chairs of the workshop.

The workshop is affiliated with OTM 2008, which will be holden at Monterrey, Mexico from November 9 to November 14, 2008.

The deadline of paper submission is June 30, 2008 (two months from today) and you are more than welcomed to submit your papers to the workshop. You can find the details of paper submission guidelines at here. Look forward to seeing your work!
