Specific Goal for Semantic Web Challenge 2006[edit]

Everyone from academia and industry is invited to submit applications that illustrate the possibilities of the Semantic Web. The applications should integrate, combine, and deduce information from various sources to assist users in performing specific tasks. The submissions should at least satisfy the minimal requirements for a Semantic Web Application and preferably exhibit some of the additional desires. Although we expect that most applications will use RDF, RDF Schema, and OWL, this is not an official requirement.

Furthermore, Semantic Web applications should be written in a true Web spirit, open to supporting reuse even in situations that have not been foreseen by the original authors. Thus a specific, additional goal of the Semantic Web Challenge 2006 is motivating participants to provide standard compliant web interfaces to the data and services provided by their applications, e.g. in the form of RSS feeds, SPARQL endpoints, REST or Web Services interfaces.


The prizes for the winners will be available as travel support and book vouchers. The winners will also be asked to give a live demonstration of their application at the ISWC 2006 conference. The best applications will also have a chance to appear as full papers in the Journal of Web Semant.css.
