===============================
EXTENDED DEADLINE: May 30, 2011
===============================

The yearly organized Linked Data Triplification Challenge awards prizes to
the most promising application demonstrations and approaches in three fields
related to Linked Data.

For the success of the Semantic Web it is from our point of view crucial to
overcome the chicken-and-egg problem of missing semantic representations on
the Web and the lack of their utilization within concrete applications, to
solve real-world problems. The Triplification Challenge aims to expedite this
process by raising awareness and showcasing best practices.

Submissions
===========

The challenge is open to anyone interested in applying Semantic Web and
Linked Data technologies. This includes students, developers, researchers,
and people from industry. Individual or group submissions are both
acceptable. We envision submissions that fall into one or more of the
following topics:

* Novel data sets that are published as part of the Web of Data, according
to Linked Data principles, and demonstrating potential benefit of use within
applications;
* Novel generic mechanisms, approaches, and technologies that convert
certain types and formats of information into triples, interlink them to
other data sets, and expose them as Linked Data;
* Applications showcasing the benefits of Linked Data to end-users such as
for information syndication, specialized search, browsing, or augmentation of
content.

A prize money will be given to the most promising applications, newly
published datasets and methodological approaches built upon Linked Data.
Participants can choose between an Open Track and a special Open Government
Data Track.

Open Track
----------

In the Open Track we envision submissions that fall into the topics described
above but do not make use of governmental data sets.

Open Government Data Track
--------------------------

Participants are to design and build a web application that makes use of open
government datasets. Any dataset qualifies that is produced by any government
in the world. These can i.e. relate to environmental data, cadastral and
geographic data, traffic data, historical data, public speeches, laws,
demographics, election data, campaigning, corporate spending on political
messaging etc. The source need not be any particular national government nor
any particular level of government (local, state, provincial, federal, etc).
At least one source must adhere to the principles of Linked Open Data.
Mashups of raw and linked data are allowed and welcome.


Evaluation Criteria
===================

The challenge is open to anyone interested in applying Semantic Web and
Linked Data technologies. This might include students, developers,
researchers, and people from industry. Individual or group submissions are
both acceptable.

Entries will be assessed according to the extent to which they

* demonstrate innovation through the expression of existing data
structures as Linked Data;
* reasonably reuse existing vocabularies and alignment ontologies (e.g.,
the datasets from the Linking Open Data cloud);
* automatically discover and use new, linked data and do not restrict
themselves to a predefined set of data sources;
* bring real benefits to potential users through the consumption of
Linked Data sources in real-world applications.

All criteria will be given equal importance in selecting the winning entry.
In the event of a tie, the entry deemed to bring greatest benefits to
potential users will be awarded the prize.


Reviews and Judging
===================

Submissions to the Triplification Challenge that fit the topics mentioned
above will be reviewed by members of the Triplification Challenge Organizing
Committee and a Programme Committee consisting of invited experts from the
Linked Data community. Based on the reviews, winners and honorary mentions
will be nominated. A final decision will be made by the Organizing Committee,
based on the reviews by the Programme Committee members.

Winners will be awarded with a prize money and a complementary conference
pass. At least one person is expected to attend the conference to collect the
prize.


Format
======

All accepted papers of I-SEMANTICS 2011, including nominated Triplification
Challenge submissions, will be published in the digital library of the ACM
ICP Series.

Submissions must not exceed 3 pages, must be original and must not have been
submitted for publication elsewhere. Articles should follow the ACM ICPS
guidelines for formatting
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates – Option 2:
Tighter Alternate Style) and must be submitted via the online submission
system available at the conference website as PDF documents (other formats
will not be accepted). For the camera-ready version, we will also need the
source files (Latex, Word Perfect, Word).


Important Dates
===============

* Paper Submission Deadline (extended!): May 30, 2011
* Notification of Acceptance: June 27, 2011
* Camera-Ready Paper: July 18, 2011
* I-SEMANTICS 2011: September 7-9, 2011
