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.
