LinkedUp Vici Competition: Linked and Open Data for Education

*Submission deadline 5th September 2014 - NEXT WEEK FRIDAY*

Presentations and awards at ISWC 2014 (19th-23th October 2014, Riva del 
Garda, Italy)

LinkedUp aims to push forward the exploitation of the vast amounts of 
public, open data available on the Web, in particular by educational 
institutions and organizations.

For Vici we invite you to design and build advanced prototypes and tools 
that exploit linked and/or open data for addressing real educational 
needs. Your tool should be mature and stable; it should be used or have 
been used by a fair amount of users on a realistic scale.

The Vici Competition has an Open Track and two Focused Tracks:
- *Supporting Developing Countries*, supported by the Commonwealth of 
Learning and DANS, calls for applications that address educational 
challenges in developing countries, such as the support of mobile, 
low-bandwidth devices.
- *Water Resources & Ecology*, supported by Elsevier, asks for linking 
published content to the Linked Data Web to enhance the learning 

The Vici competition runs from 26th May 2014 till 5th September 2014. 
Prizes (up €3,000 for first prize) will be awarded at the 13th 
International Semantic Web Conference in Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy 
in October 2014.
