LinkedUp Vici Competition: Linked and Open Data for Education

**Submission deadline 5th September 2014**
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 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*, sponsored 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*, sponsored 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 EUR3,000 for first prize) will be awarded at the 13th 
International Semantic Web Conference in Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy 
in October 2014.
