Semantic Web Challenge
When: at the Poster & Demo Session on Tuesday, November 13, 18:30-21:00 (Imperial) & Wednesday, November 14, 11:00-12:30 (Statler)
The Semantic Web Challenge, now in its 10th year, aims to demonstrate practical progress towards achieving the vision of the Semantic Web. The competition, organised in 3 rounds, enables practitioners and scientists to showcase leading-edge real world applications of Semantic Web technology.
Journal Workshop Session
When: Tuesday, November 13, 16:00-17:30 (Berkley)
Workshop participants will discuss sketches of their papers with editors and eidtorial board members of the top Semantic Web jorunals as well as other workshop participants. The goal is to help attendees to turn the sketches into successful submissions and avoid common stumbling blocks.
People who wish to participate will be asked to submit a paper sketch (see cfp). The accepted sketeches will be read by the editors and the other chosen participants prior the workshop. Prior to the workshop, participants whose sketches have been accepted to will receive one to three other sketches to read and review. During the workshop, participants will meet in small groups which includes an editorial board memeber. During this discussion, participants will receive specific feedback on on the possible issues to address in order to turn the sketch into a possibly successful submission.
Selection for the Journal Workshop Session is competitive. Papers currently under review or revision are excluded.
When: Wednesday, November 14, 12:30-12:00 (Terrace)
When: Wednesday, November 14, 16:00-17:30 (Georgian)
This session provides an open forum for participants to present a topic of their choosing. Each presenter is limited to one slide and two minutes time. Presenters must submit the title and one pdf slide to an email address announced in the conference's opening session. Limited presentation slots will be awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Poster, Demo, and SWC Minute Madness
When: Tuesday, November 13, 18:30-21:00 (Imperial)
In this session, authors of a submission to the posters and demonstration track as well as the Semantic Web Challenge provide a 1 minute teaser for their poster or demo. This year, we have an exciting mix of submissions treating questions such as "How can we interact efficiently with Linked Data?", "How can we visualize data in the Semantic Web?" or "How can we query and analyze Semantic Web data?
Town Hall Meeting
When: Wednesday, November 14, 17:45-18:45 (Georgian)
When: Saturday, November 10 (MIT)
The world is changing fast and so is Elsevier. To build and deploy future research tools we need to seriously collaborate in a linked and distributed environment. Building on earlier developer events such as Executable Paper Challenge, Life Sciences Challenge and Apps for Science, Elsevier and the 11th International Semantic Web Conference are co-hosting CodeForScience Boston, a competition for building a tool that best extends how scientific researchers search, process, integrate and share. The application concept formulation and submission will take place online, followed by a live coding day on Saturday, November 10th at MIT Stata Center in Cambridge, MA.
CodeForScience Boston will consist of two stages:
- Stage One: Online concept submission period runs from Saturday, October the 13th through to Saturday, October the 27th. Novel submissions will be recognized and awarded as concept winners at Stage Two.
- Stage Two: Onsite all-day coding event including demos, judging and prize giveaway will take place on Saturday, November 10th at MIT Stata Center, Cambridge , MA. Stage Two is not limited to concept winners; participation is open to everyone, provided that space is available.
Prizes will be awarded. Registration for CodeForScience Boston will open in early October.
You can use Elsevier’s SciVerse content and framework APIs which gives access to the database of full-text research articles on ScienceDirect as well as abstract and citations databases of peer-reviewed literature and web sources on Scopus. You are welcome to use any other data sources of your choice to build your application. The event hosts will claim no IP ownership of your concept or app submission.
For inspiration look at some ideas on article of the future or browse through some existing apps on the SciVerse Applications Gallery. The Elsevier Developer portal lists documentation and sample codes.
