Dear All,

At the start of November the LinkedUp Project launched the second in our 
LinkedUp Challenge - the Vidi Competition 

For the Vidi Competition we are inviting you to design and build 
innovative and robust prototypes and demos for tools that analyse and/or 
integrate open web data for educational purposes. The competition will 
run from *4th November 2013* till *14th February 2014*. Prizes (up to 
EUR3,000 for first) will be awarded at the European Semantic Web 
Conference in Crete, Greece in May 2014. You can find out full details 
on the LinkedUp Challenge Websit <http://linkedup-challenge.org>e.

For this Competition we have one open track and two focused tracks that 
may guide teams or provide inspiration.

We've recently published blog posts on the tracks:

  * Pathfinder
    Using linked data to ease access to recommendations and guidance
  * Simplificator
    Using linked data to add context to domain-specific resources

There is also a blog post detailing the technical support we can offer 

We'd like to complement these posts with an online webinar which will 
introduce LinkedUp and the Vidi Competition. There will also be an 
opportunity to ask our technical support team questions and find out 
more about the data sets available. The webinar will take approximately 
45 minutes and will be recorded.

The webinar is still in planning but is likely to take place in the next 
couple of weeks, if you are interested in participating please register 
<http://bit.ly/vidi-video-registration> your email address and we will 
share times with you.
