Workshop Overview

Dataspaces, which are critical to seamless and trusted data sharing, have gained prominence in Europe with the European Data Governance Act (DGA). This legislation defines terms and aims to increase trust, expand data availability, and promote common dataspaces. The impact spans sectors such as data providers, researchers, businesses, and citizens. Initiatives like the European Open Science Cloud and the adoption of the FAIR Data Principles further contribute to the relevance of dataspaces. Efficient data sharing within dataspaces requires semantic interoperability, for which the Semantic Web community has a long history of developing RDF-based solutions.

The Semantic Web Dataspaces (SDS) 2024 workshop seeks to advance semantic methods and solutions for dataspaces by encouraging collaboration between researchers and practitioners. It aims to advance the expressiveness, standardization, and integration of semantic technologies in dataspace architectures. The workshop promises interactive sessions, presentations, and discussions to drive advances in semantics for dataspaces.

Topics of Interest

The topics of this workshop aim to discuss both conceptual definitions and actual implementations of dataspaces, and to promote the role of the Semantic Web in these. The main topics of this workshop include but are not limited to:

Conceptual Perspective: State-of-the-art Implementations: Semantics for Dataspaces:


Please submit your contributions via EasyChair:

We welcome the following types of contributions (see “Rules for papers in the proceedings” at CEUR-WS for more information). All page limits include references.

Strictly follow the rules for LLM generated text and AI assistance in general by the ESWC guidelines and the CEUR-WS guidelines.

Workshop papers must be self-contained and in English. They should not have been previously published, should not be considered for publication, and should not be under review for another workshop, conference, or journal. We use a traditional peer review process, so blind submission is not required. The PDF files must have all non-standard fonts embedded. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop.

Important Dates

Submission      March 07, 2024, March 14, 2024 (extended)
Notification of acceptance      April 04, 2024, April 08, 2024
Registration      Please visit the ESWC 2024 registration page
Camera-Ready submission      April 18, 2024
Workshop at ESWC 2024      Half Full day on May 26, 2024

All submission deadlines are end-of-day in the Anywhere on Earth (AoE) time zone.

Participation and Publication

The ESWC 2024 is a 100% in person conference. All presenters (keynotes, papers, etc.) need to be physically present, no virtual presentations are allowed. We however encourage additional participants to join the workshop physically or virtually.

Workshop papers will be included in an Open Access publication all indexed by all relevant services such as Scopus or Google Scholar. Pre-prints of all contributions will be made available during the conference.

Diversity as Key for Innovation

We believe that research and innovation is enriched and furthered by a multitude of perspectives. Hence, we want to create an inclusive, respectful workshop environment. We invite all individuals to participate regardless of age, education, ethnicity, gender, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability, physical appearance, or gender presentation. This applies to all aspects, for example, we welcome all operating systems, quality of computer hardware, open-minded political orientation, and appropriate English skills. Inclusion drives us forward every day.


SDS 2024 would not have been possible without the full support of the partners with whom we collaborate to advance R&D in the area of semantics in dataspaces.
