In the workshop it will be discussed whether and how new emerging technologies (Linked Data, and semantic technologies more generally) can realize the vision of Linked Science. We see that this depends on their enabling capability throughout the research process, leading up to extended publications and data sharing environments. The workshop aims to address challenges related to enabling the easy creation of data bundles – data, processes, tools, provenance and annotation – supporting both publication and reuse of the data. Secondly, it looks for tools and methods for the easy correlation, integration and synthesis of shared data. This problem is often found in many disciplines (including astronomy, biology, climate change research, geosciences, cultural heritage, etc.), as they need to span techniques, levels of theory, scales, and disciplines. With the advent of Linked Science, it is timely and crucial to address these identified research challenges through both practical and formal approaches.
