The so-called Web 2.0 brought a new breadth to the Internet, and a social
perspective that seems set to stay. Services such as LinkedIn, Hi5, and
Facebook have found a place in our society. People connect to each other
through common paths. Meta-APIs such as Google's November 2007 release,
OpenSocial, enable social applications to operate across multiple sites and
services, providing a way to relate much of this data. In social
tools (e.g. Delicious, Connotea, Bibsonomy), and media sharing services
(such as Youtube, Flickr, Picasa, Slideshare) people are asked to tag and
otherwise annotate and share their resources inside communities or at a
global scale, creating a huge amount of user generated metadata (tags) with
a clear value for information discovery.

This workshop intends to gather all interested in such applications and
developments, and in their relationship with metadata and practices. The
themes of the workshop will be:
-         Emerging trends in social tagging.
-         Tagging communities and Web-based collaboration.
-         Web standards for resource description in collaborative
-         Vocabulary building from folksonomies (tag-ontologies,
tag-thesaurus, etc.)
-         Metadata and annotation management.
-         Formats for describing communities (FOAF, SIOC, etc.)
-         Analysis of online communities (SNA) through folksonomies and
tagging systems.
-         Other ways of describing information for Web 2.0 (microformats,
