Doing Good by Linking Entities, Developer's Challenge

2nd International Workshop on Web of Linked Entities (WoLE2013)
In conjunction with the 22nd International World Wide Web Conference
(WWW2013), Rio de Janeiro, 13 May 20132

The WoLE2013 Challenge is offering prizes for the best applications that 
show the impact of the Web of Linked Entities on problems/solutions 
affecting the local community, e.g. detecting corruption, tracking 
criminality, facilitating access to education or health services, 
helping to search for the cure for neglected diseases, promoting citizen 
participation on the government, improving tourism-related services, etc.

Although we have observed an explosion of the number of structured data 
sources shared on the "Web of Data", the majority of the available Web 
content is still unstructured or semi-structured -- e.g. encoded in 
(hyper-) textual documents. Web content (structured, unstructured and 
semi-structured) often makes references to other documents or to 
entities described in structured data sources (e.g. Linked Data). 
Moreover, structured data sources provide entity to entity 
interconnections, resulting in a Web of Linked Entities spanning 
structured and unstructured data.

We believe that interconnecting and sharing explicit interconnections 
between documents and open data sources on the Web will increase the 
value of each data source and enable a number of innovative applications 
that leverage both the individual data sources and their interconnections.

Submissions will be judged based on originality, potential impact and 
pertinence to the subject of the workshop. Note to prospective 
participants: if you run a website that has (potential) social impact, 
but you are not an expert on WoLE research/technologies, or if you are a 
technical person that needs ideas for applications with high potential 
for the region, we have prepared a team for assisting you with 
questions/answers at:
We will award up to 2 iPad2 to the best application(s).
