More and more governmental organizations publish their data as open data (most typically as CSV files1). Nevertheless, in order to publish such data as Linked Data, further non-trivial effort is needed, which is often not done by these organizations. The goal of the workshop is to present the approaches we (Semantic Web Company, University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University) use to simplify publishing of Linked Data from tabular data by using tools for (semi)automatic conversion of tabular data to Linked Data. We would like to discuss the issues/lessons learned we have so far, present the evaluations of such tools, and future directions in that area, etc.
