Announcement: The Open Web, Billion Triples Challenge 2008
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the first public pre-announcement of the Open Web, Billion 
Triples Challenge, which will be organized as a special track of next 
year's Semantic Web Challenge [1]. This track will be in addition to the 
traditional SWC competition and it will focus on pushing the limits in 
tool design on the fronts of scalability in size and robustness in the 
face of data typically found on the Web. The goal of the competition is 
also to generate new application ideas, i.e. to show what is possible 
with Web metadata today.

The details of this Challenge are yet to be determined and we are 
calling on the Semantic Web community to help us in its formation. For 
this purpose we have set up a mailing list [2] and would like to invite 
everyone interested in this new Challenge to join this list. The mailing 
list will serve to discuss the data sets and rules of competition, and 
later to disseminate all other information regarding the new Challenge.

Best Regards,

The co-chairs of the SWC:

Jim Hendler (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)
Peter Mika (Yahoo! Research)
