14th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2015)

     Bethlehem, U.S.

     October 11, 2015


The SemStats Challenge is back with more action! It is organized in the 
context of the SemStats 2015 workshop. Participants are invited to apply 
statistical techniques and semantic web technologies.

The challenge will consist in the realization of mashups or 
visualizations, but also on comparisons, analytics, alignment and 
enrichment of the data and concepts involved in statistical data (see 
below for the data made available and additional requirements).

The deadline for participants to submit their challenge papers (up to 6 
pages, same submission guidelines as the Call for Papers 
http://semstats.org/2015/call-for-papers#submissions ) and application 
is Monday 21 September, 2015, 23:59pm Hawaii Time. Submission is done 
via EasyChair ( https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=semstats2015 
) by selecting the Challenge paper category.

It is strongly suggested to all challenge participants to send contact 
informations to semstats2015@easychair.org in order to be kept informed 
in case of any changes in the data provided.

Open Data Track

This year we are going with the Open Track: papers must describe a 
publicly available application. We would love to see everyone play and 
learn from what you have created. You are welcome to use any statistical 
data whether it is already in Linked Data shape or not! While you are at 
it, why not combine it with data from other domains?

Here are some dataset suggestions for this year’s challenge:

Italian National Institute of Statistics
     Istat makes available Italian Population and Housing Census 2011 
http://datiopen.istat.it/ Linked Data. See also the description of data 
and metadata and for an example dataset.

Scottish Government
     The Scottish Statistics Beta http://statisticsbeta.com/ (soon to be 
http://statistics.gov.scot/) provides you with the data behind their 
official statistics on "Neighbourhood Statistics".

UK Department for Communities and Local Government
     UK DCLG provides their official Linked Open Data 
http://opendatacommunities.org/ of "a selection of statistics [...] 
including Local Government finance, housing and homelessness, wellbeing, 
deprivation, and the department’s business plan as well as supporting 
geographical data".

Flemish Government
     Statistics from the Flemish Government makes their statistical 
available with SKOS & XKOS hierarchies.

And more:
