Dear all, after our jailbreaking the pdf hackathon we are pleased to
let you know about our participation at the hack4ac meeting in London.
more information about the meeting can be found at http://hack4ac.com

You are all welcome to join us in London, we will be very happy if we
could know and discuss your ideas as to "how to read scholarly
communication in a different way?"  all u need is just thinking out of
the box, a pencil
and a paper where to sketch your ideas (no programing is
required!!!!). For the hack4ac we are working on:

BIOTEA, RDFizing PubMed Central in support for the paper as an
interface to the Web of Data

1) BIOTEA (http://biotea.idiginfo.org) provides RDF for the full-text,
open-access subset of PubMed Central (PMC). PMC is a free full-text
archive of biomedical literature; currently, it includes 1,679
journals. We identify semantic entities in the content and structure
these using the Annotation Ontology. We have the content fully
immersed within the web of data. BIOTEA is fully compliant with
Bio2RDF. We want to create a geo map of authors and affiliations. We
are also interested in new interfaces to scholar documents, in this
case this specific dataset, how can we deliver new reading
experiences? how can we facilitate rapid concept based reading of
scholarly documents? how to best use mash up technology in order to
build a new reading experience when it comes to scholarly documents?
We have some prototypes we would like to share and discuss. BTW the
corresponding paper, http://www.jbiomedsem.com/content/4/S1/S5

2) Leyla Garcia, Alexander Garcia

3) design, Interactive Interfaces, js, Human Interface Interaction,
creative, imaginative, think out of the box

4) a pencil and a piece of paper where u can draft a workflow
supporting a new experience in reading, searching and retrieving
documents

JailBreaking the PDF http://pdfjailbreak.com/home

1) Currently, the bulk of peer-reviewed scientific knowledge is locked
up in PDF documents, which are difficult to get information. We are
changing this. to change that. We recently had a hackathon at the ESWC
in Montpellier, France. It was a great experience, we want to share
the outcomes and challenges and invite u all to join us. How to
extract meaningful information from PDF? how to transform everything
PDF into usable data? how to get all citations in usable formats from
PDFs? how to regain control over our content instead of keep having it
jailed in PDFs? we want to build a REAL OPEN library of scholarly
communication where documents are part of the web of data. Our
technology is applicable to any other domain. We have datasets
available http://pdfjailbreak.com/datasets,

2) Leyla Garcia, Alexander Garcia

3) design, Interactive Interfaces, js, JAVA, creative, imaginative,
think out of the box, any programing language

4) a pencil and a piece of paper where u can draft a workflow
supporting a new experience in archiving and delivering usable data
from PDFs.
