[We apologies to those who receive this announcement multiple times.]

The application form for the Web Intelligence Summer School on The Web 
of Data (WISS 2014) has been published [1]. A pre-programme has been

The summer school will culminate in a hackathon where participants will 
develop Web applications using and producing Web data.

Moreover, in the spirit of open collaboration, the applications and data

Web Intelligence Summer School - The Web of Data
25th-29th August, 2014
Saint-Étienne, France

Data is no longer an asset that only companies and organisations deal
with. Recently, Web data has become crucial to our daily life. Open data
is transforming institutions, people are sharing increasingly private
and sensitive data on social networks, access to web APIs facilitates
application development, and linked data is changing the Web into a huge
database. The Web of Data is thus complementing the existing Web of
multimedia documents, the Social Web and the Web of Applications. In
this situation everybody should be aware of data management,
manipulation, access and visualisation.

During one week, the Web Intelligence community in Rhône-Alpes and
Universität Bonn will bring together Web of Data experts who will equip
the participants with scientific and practical competence via lectures
and hands-on sessions, enabling them to contribute to and take advantage
of the full potential of the Web of Data.
