Introduction

Given the recent growth in openly-available, rich, structured information published on the Web as Linked Data, this tutorial series focuses on consuming large corpora of such data, with particular emphasis on techniques for performing scalable integration. Following a brief introduction to Linked Data principles and publishing, we cover techniques for crawling, indexing, querying and reasoning over such data. We also highlight pragmatic issues faced when performing such tasks.

Along these lines, the Scalable Integration of Linked Data tutorial series targets practitioners who wish to leverage existing Linked Data for their applications, but is also directly relevant to a wider audience hoping to learn more about Linked Data and the related standards.
