The objectives of the workshop are twofold: to foster startup ideas and to encourage discussion around business drivers and opportunities and to identify potential barriers from both a technological and a standardisation perspective. In order to promote such discussion we propose three types of submissions, all of them either in short paper (2-4 pages) format (suggested template: Springer LNCS) or presentation slides.

Linked Data Startup Pitch:
Present your Linked Data startup idea and business model. Submissions to this category qualify for the LD startup challenge that will be held during the workshop.

Linked Data Startup Success Stories:
Share the story of your successful Linked Data Startup.

Linked Data Startup Post Mortem Studies:
Share the story on why your Linked Data Startup (idea) did not succeed.

Contributions must be submitted via the workshop submission system
