PlanetData Programs – Project Proposal Evaluators for Call 1

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

PlanetData (www.planet-data.eu) is an EU co-funded Network of Excellence
creating a durable community of academic and industrial partners. This
community is supported in conducting research in the large-scale data
management area through the provision of data sets and access to tailored
data management technology. It benefits from a comprehensive program of
training, dissemination, standardization, and networking activities,
intended to strengthen existing collaborations and establish new ones, to
educate organizations in key questions related to open data exposure, and
to transfer research results towards industry.

During the duration of PlanetData (2010-2014) the consortium issues open
calls to extend its expertise and to invite new partners to carry out
certain tasks within the project. Selected partner(s) will be eligible for
funding of research activities.

Call 1

The ICT project PlanetData has vacancies in the consortium for partners
having comprehensive research and technological expertise in the area of
"Consuming Linked Data".

Specific topics in the thematic area

We solicit proposals for research projects with a focus on demonstration
of developed technologies in a concrete application context making use of
publicly available Linked Data sets. Relevant topics include but are not
limited to Web-scale data management, searching and querying, reasoning,
Linked Sensor Data, quality assessment and data curation, analytics and
mining, front-ends and visualisation, as well as business and incentives
models for data-driven services and applications. Submissions should
demonstrate the applicability of their research results with an
application that consumes data from the open Web, ideally of societal
value, including, but not limited to the following domains: public sector
information and statistical data, bibliographic and media sector
information, life sciences, Earth science and environmental data,
geospatial data, as well as transportation and urban management.
