Veni Competition is inviting submissionsMay 22, 2013 in Calls, Challenge, Dissemination

The LinkedUp Veni Competition has now opened, and is inviting submissions.

The first of three consecutive competitions, the Veni Competition is calling for you to submit an innovative and robust prototype or demo that uses linked and/or open data for educational purposes.

The idea is to mash up the vast amount of material and data that can be used in education. You might design a tool for combining datasets and visualising them in interesting new ways, or perhaps develop a search engine that combines search results from different libraries.

If you are looking for further inspiration, please see our use cases, curated from high profile organisations such as the Commonwealth of Learning.

The total prize fund for ‘Veni’ is 5.000 EUR, however these prizes are only one reason to participate. It is also a fantastic opportunity to work with the large, documented repositoryof linked datasets that the LinkedUp team has catalogued and structured, including data about open educational resources, course content and university facilities.

The LinkedUp team will also be providing dedicated support, including technical support with code. A designated developer blog contains information such as ‘cooking recipes’ and ‘how-to-guides’.

Participants will also be able to showcase their ideas and solutions to a wide community of researchers and practitioner, and will provide the opportunity to meet interesting people from across the public and private sector. After a review process invitations will be made to the teams behind the best applications, offering the opportunity to present their submissions at OKCon in Geneva, on 17 September 2013.

More information can be found on the Challenge website.

What are you waiting for? Join the Challenge today!

Deadline for submissions: 27 June 2013

Sindice - The semantic web index

Sindice - The semantic web index | Linked Data and Semantic Web | Scoop.it

The Web of Data is the web composed of pages which have semantic markup in RDF, RDFa, Microformats or Microdata (e.g. schema.org). Semantic markup can be about any topic, ranging from popular ones like people, events, reviews, products, services etc., to specific scientific annotations, media, bioscience, software and more.

 

Sindice is a platform to build applications on top of this data. Sindice collects Web Data in many ways, following existing web standards, and offers Search and Querying across this data, updated live every few minutes. Specialized APIs , and tools are also available.
