LinkedUp Vidi Competition: Linked and Open Data for Education

*Submission deadline 14 February 2014*
Presentations and awards at ESWC 2014 (25-29 May 2014, Crete)


The closing date (14th February) for the Vidi competition is less than 
two weeks away.

The LinkedUp Project aims to push forward the exploitation of the vast 
amounts of public, open data available on the Web, in particular by 
educational institutions and organizations.

For Vidi we're inviting you to design and build innovative and robust 
prototypes and demos for tools that analyse and/or integrate open web 
data for educational purposes. You can submit your Web application, App, 
analysis toolkit, documented API or any other tool that connects, 
exploits or analyses open or linked data and that addresses real 
educational needs. For Vidi your tool may contain some bugs, as long as 
it has a stable set of features and you have some proof that it can be 
deployed on a realistic scale.

This time we also have two focused tracks to run alongside our open 
track. In these tracks we are asking you to design a solution to the 
problem we have described.
- *Simplificator* calls for applications easing access to complex 
information by summarizing them in a simpler form.
- *Pathfinder* requires applications easing access to recommendation and 
guidance when chosing appropriate curriculum of courses and related 

You can find out more about the focused tracks from the LinkedUp 
Challenge website.

The Vidi competition will run from 4th November 2013 till 14th February 
2014. Prizes (up EUR3,000 for first prize) will be awarded at the 
European Semantic Web Conference in Crete, Greece in May 2014. You can 
find out more details about the catalogue of datasets we've collated for 
you and ideas to get you started on the LinkedUp Challenge website.

So get designing!

To help you get started, we published a blog post an overview of the 
competition and the resources:
