ESWC 2010 - AI Mashup Challenge: Call for Submissions

Published by {{by}} on {{at}} and updated at {{updated}}.


The Topic Maps Lab is involved in the organisation of the AI Mashup Challenge at the Extended (former: European) Semantic Web Conference, 2010 in Heraklion, Greece. A mashup is a lightweight (web) application that offers new functionality by combining, aggregating and transforming data and services available on the web. The submission of Topic Maps based mashups is highly appreciated. The deadline is April 1, 2010.

About the challenge

ESWC2010 will include an AI Mashup Challenge.
It is a great opportunity to demonstrate intelligent mashups combining existing web resources into a new and useful service.
ESWC2010 participants will vote the mashups; the winning groups will receive industry-sponsored awards.


  • Mashup developers send a mail to the organizers, containing their Google ID, the URL of their mashup, its name and a short description.
  • The organizers provide them with a subpage of the mashup challenge site.
  • There, the developers can describe their mashup and link to its URL. Till review they can go on improving their work.
  • Deadline is April, 1, 2010. At that day the reviewers will start assessing the submitted mashups.
  • Acceptance will be communicated by May 1st 2010.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
