The emergence of the Web of Data and its gradual adoption in learning or 
education-related settings has led to the creation of an embryonic “Web 
of Educational Data” including institutional data from universities, as 
well as Linked Data about publicly available educational resources. In 
addition, informal learning and knowledge exchange are inherent to the 
online interactions found on the Web, involving for instance, learning 
and knowledge-centric social networks, but also general purpose social 
environments such as LinkedIn, where matters related to skills, 
competence development or training are central concerns. These 
interactions generate a vast amount of informal knowledge resources and 
learning traces which, combined with metadata and knowledge from the Web 
of data, can significantly transform the production and consumption of 
learning material and knowledge. However, widespread adoption, reuse and 
analysis of educational data is still hindered by issues that are both 
technical as well interdisciplinary. Building on the success of several 
editions of the LILE workshop (2011-2015), LILE2016 aims at addressing 
such challenges by providing a forum for researchers and practitioners 
who make innovative use of Linked Data for educational purposes, and to 
discuss, exchange and disseminate their work.

The workshop aims to be a highly interactive research forum for 
exploring the promises of the Web of Data in the broad area of learning 
by gathering researchers from the areas of the Semantic Web, Social Web, 
Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), and Education.
We will welcome high-quality papers about actual trends in (a) how 
education takes advantage of the Web of Data, especially through 
entity-centric technologies and (b) how principles for data sharing 
(Linked Data, embedded annotations etc.) can benefit educational 
contexts. We will seek application-oriented, as well as more theoretical 
papers and position papers in the following, non-exhaustive list of topics:

- Linked data for informal learning and Web-based education
- Using the Web of Data for personalisation and context-awareness in 
Web-based learning
- Exploration of informal learning activities on the Web
- Analytics of pattern and notions of learning in the Social Web
- and LRMI for annotating and exploring educational related 
Web content
- Entity-centric approaches for analysing and understanding learning 
- Light-weight educational metadata schemas and vocabularies
- Usability and advanced user interfaces in learning environments and 
linked data
- Exposing learning objects to the Web of Data
- Semantic & syntactic mappings between educational schemas and vocabularies
- Controlled vocabularies, ontologies and terminologies for Web-based 
- Learning flows and designs with Semantic Web technologies
- Linked Data in learning analytics and educational data mining
- Visual analytics of educational data
- Linked Data and Microdata/RDFa in organizational learning and learning 
- Linked Data for harmonizing individual learning goals and 
organizational objectives
- Analysing & understanding competencies and skills through Linked Data 
and knowledge graphs
- Collaborative learning on the Web of Data
- Linked Data enhanced social learning

We welcome the following types of contributions.

- Full papers (up to 6 pages)
- Short papers (up to 3 pages)

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted 
according to the ACM format 
( . Please 
submit your contributions electronically in PDF format via the LILE2016 
submission system at Papers will be 
evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical 
content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. At least one 
author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop and 
register for the conference. The main workshop proceedings will be 
published through the ACM Digital Library ( 
Furthermore, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit 
extended versions to a dedicated journal special issue.

Best paper awards will be kindly provided by the workshop sponsors, i.e. 
the SIG DataTEL ( and GNOSS
