Open now: LOD Triplification Challenge 2009
The yearly organized Linking Open Data Triplification Challenge (as part of this year´s I-Semantics conference, 2 – 4 September 2009, Graz/Austria) awards prizes to the most promising triplifications of existing Web applications, Websites and data sets.
The challenge (Patron: Sir Tim Berners-Lee) is open to anyone interested in applying Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies. We envision submissions such as following:
- Applications of Linked Data tools and techniques such as for example Triplify, Virtuoso or D2RQ on custom Web applications and data sets exposing a large quantity and variety of content.
- Implementations of exporters and mappers from existing content repository formats (such as mbox mailing list archives, Bib Te X, XML-Schemes etc.) into RDF and Linked Data.
- Adoptions / configurations of Triplify for standard Web applications, such as for example Wikis, Weblogs, Webshops, Forums, Web-Gallery, ERP/CRM systems and Web-calendar software. You can find popular Web applications for example at Source Forge.
- Portings of the Triplify script into other Web application programming languages such as Python, Ruby, Perl, ASP. The Triplify script is very small (<300 lines of code) however, the port should be as compatible as possible with the current reference implementation but integrate well with the environment given by the programming language.
- Applications showcasing the benefits of Linked Data to end-users such as for information syndication, specialized search, browsing or augmentation of content.
Submissions should consist of a two page description in JUCS format of the application, accompanied by (a link to) the software source code and a link to an online demo. The descriptions should be submitted electronically via email to Michael Hausenblas with the subject Triplification Challenge Submission by May 30th, 2009.
