Fellow Researcher,

Building on the success of previous year's Semantic Search evaluation, 
we call for participation in the Semantic Search Challenge 2011, a 
competition that requires participants to answer queries of varying 
complexity based on a set of structured data collected from the Web.This

year's competition will consists of two tracks. Please refer to the call

below for more details. The first "Entity Search Track" consists of 
queries that refer to one particular entity. The second "List Search 
Track" consists of complex queries with multiple possible answers. The 
winners of each track will receive a prize of $500 dollars (sponsored by

Yahoo!). Please refer to the website for details.

The results of the evaluation will be presented at the 4th International

Semantic Search Workshop (SemSearch 2011), co-located with the World 
Wide Web Conference (WWW 2011) in Hyderabad, India. However, you don't 
need to attend the workshop to participate in the Challenge.

For further news and discussions related to SemSearch 2011 and the 
Semantic Search Challenge, please register at 

We are looking forward to having you participate!
