Useful semantic content cannot be created fully automatically, but
motivating people to contribute to this process remains challenging. Our
project INSEMTIVES <> revisits fundamental design
issues of semantic-content authoring tools in order to find out which
incentives speak to people to become engaged with the Semantic Web, and to
determine ways in which such mechanisms can be transferred into technology
design. Hiding the technicalities of knowledge engineering, semantic
annotation and data integration behind captivating, entertaining games seems
to be a promising approach to achieve this goal.

As part of the *INSEMTIVES game challenge* we are looking for colorful,
innovative ideas with a twist for new “games with a purpose”. The purpose,
of course, is primarily the creation of useful semantic content, but there
are no bounds to your creativity. To get some inspiration, you can have a
look at some of our games: OntoPronto and OntoTube <>,
which are about the development and population of an ontology, and the
semantic annotation of video content, respectively. Other relevant topics
could include the annotation of text, music files, photo collections, but
also the interlinking of RDF data sets, their curation, the alignment of
data sources, or any other aspect that facilitates the uptake of the
Semantic Web.
