Hi Everybody,

This is a quick reminder regarding the OCAS Challenge (OCAS, ISWC 2011
Workshop, see http://ocas.mywikipaper.org). The Challenge is domain
independent; we want to see SW technology and ontologies in action. Papers
submitted to other workshops and Challenges are welcome. We are interested
in *“Ontologies and Semantic Web technology come of age, how is the Semantic
Web changing our experience of the Web?”* Prizes are:

First place: US$ 2000

Second place: US$ 1000

Three third prizes of $500 each

For the OCAS Challenge we expect short papers (3 pages) describing the

Those participating in the challenge should provide a three-page manuscript
describing their software; from the manuscript it should be clear for

   - Software availability: judges and general public should be able to
   access the software. In most cases this means that the software, ontologies
   and/or infrastructure is freely accessible -free software is not compulsory.
   - Semantic Web technology: how is this application making use of semantic
   web technology? How is this application making use of existing
   infrastructure? Data sources being used, etc.
   - How is it delivering new layers of functionality based on semantic data
   sources (linked data, RDF stores, ontologies, etc).
   - How is it delivering an intelligent interconnected experience to the
   end user?
   - What is the added value?
   - How is the *Interconnectedness* of semantic data sets being delivered
   to the end user?
   - How are intelligence and interconnectivity being supported by
   the software or infrastructure?
   - Does the software or infrastructure represent a fundamental change
   for the domain rather than just an incremental improvement or just one of
   many added new features?

We would like to have applications from all domains. The GC is not limited
to web based applications, mobile platforms for devices like iPAD, iphone,
Galaxy, XOOM, HTC, etc are also accepted –strongly encouraged.  Authors
submitting to other Challenges, workshops and conferences are welcome to
also submit their work to the OCAS challenge.

For those who require high performance computing facilities our sponsor,
http://protechsolutions.com/, will make them available free of charge.

Submission should be via Easychair

* All papers submitted for the OCAS
Challenge<http://ocas.mywikipaper.org/?q=node/8> should
be formatted according to the LNCS


- Paper submission deadline: August 15
- Notification of acceptance or rejection: September 5
- Camera ready version due: September 16
