Hi all,

Together with this years I-Semantics conference we are organizing a
Linking Open Data Triplification Challenge. Submission deadline is in 
three weeks (30th of June).

The challenge aims at expediting the process of revealing and exposing
structured (relational) representations, which already back most of the
existing Web sites, as well as raising awareness in the Web Developer
community and showcasing best practices.

The challenge awards attractive prices (MacBook Air, EeePC, iPod) to the
most innovative and promising semantifications. The prizes are kindly
sponsored by OpenLink Software [2], Punkt.NetServices [3] and InfAI [4].

More Information about the challenge can be found at:

I think outreach to the Web developer communities (as intended with the
challenge) is really crucial right now to expedite the Semantic Web
deployment and I would be very excited if you support this effort - e.g.
by spreading the word and/or submitting to the challenge.

Best,

Sören
