CfP: Semantic Scripting Challenge (at SFSW06)

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - Semantic Scripting Challenge

In conjunction with this years ESWC Workshop on Scripting for the 
Semantic Web a Scripting Challenge will be performed. We would like to 
invite authors of script applications to submit a short description and 
possibly present their application at SFSW06 in Budva, Montenegro.

The application must be implemented using a scripting language and 
Semantic Web technologies. It should access, visualize or combine 
information from different sources in new unforeseen ways. In that the 
challenge is an ideal way to showcase how the Semantic Web idea can be 
combined with AJAX, Folksonomy and Web 2.0 approaches.

The winner as well as submissions to be presented at the workshop and 
included in the workshop proceedings will be selected by members of the 
Program Committee of the SFSW workshop.

Authors of Scripting  Challenge submissions are not required to attend 
the workshop personally.


As a price an Apple iPod Nano (or alternatively € 200 cash) will be 
awarded to the most innovative scripting application. This price is 
kindly sponsored by @semantics.


Submission deadline:
         March 30, 2006
Announcement of the winner and presentation of selected submissions:
         June 11 or 12, 2006


Scripting Challenge Submissions should include a 2 page description of 
the application, ideally accompanied with the source code and a link to 
an online demo.
