The Tetherless World Constellation at RPI is excited to announce that
TWC <http://tw.rpi.edu> and the SciVerse team at Elsevier are planning
a 24-hour Health and Life Sciences Semantic Web Hackathon
<http://bit.ly/iigLrv> to be held 27-28 June 2011. The
Elsevier-sponsored event will be held at the beautiful Pat's Barn, on
the campus of the Rensselaer Technology Park.

Participants will compete against each other to develop apps using
linked data from TWC and other sources, web APIs from Elsevier
SciVerse, and visualization and other resources from around the Web.

Registration at: <http://twcsciverse2011.eventbrite.com/>

Prizes: The contest will encompass building apps utilizing the
SciVerse API and other resources in multiple categories, including
Health and Life Sciences and Open classes. Overall, there will be
three winners:
* First place: $1500
* Second place: $1000
* Third place: $500

Judging: A distinguished panel of judges is being assembled and will
include domain experts, faculty and representatives from Elsevier's
SciVerse team.

Refreshments: All attendees will be fed lunch, dinner, and midnight
snack on 27 June and breakfast and lunch on 28 June.

Travel Assistance: A small amount of travel assistance will be made
available for students and non-profits on a competitive basis. Please
see our Travel Assistance or contact us for further details.

Travel and Lodging Information: See the Elsevier/Tetherless World
Health and Life Sciences Hackathon web site <http://bit.ly/iigLrv> for
specific information about transportation and lodging near the venue.
Please note that the Hackathon runs for 24 hours, so it is unlikely
that participants will want lodging on the night of 27 June...
