The MDTS11 workshop is sponsoring a data challenge. The challenge builds
atop a dataset from Thomson ISI WoS with a focuses on embryology and
embryonic science from 1956 to 2010. We invite you to download the dataset,
explore it, learn something interesting about it, and submit a contribution
about it on the MDRS11 webpage (http://iscpif.fr/MDTS11). The workshop
itself will feature presentations by authors on march 25 as well as a
broader discussion of data issues and science mapping issues.

Until the submission is closed, people are invited to share pre-processing
of the data on the workshop website. Pre-processing and contribution
submission are independent. People don't need to submit to the challenge to
be eligible for the best preprocessing.
