Doing Good by Linking Entities, Developer's Challenge

2nd International Workshop on Web of Linked Entities (WoLE2013)

In conjunction with the 22nd International World Wide Web Conference

(WWW2013), Rio de Janeiro, 13 May 20132


The WoLE2013 Challenge is offering prizes for the best applications that
show the impact of the Web of Linked Entities on problems/solutions
affecting the local community, e.g. detecting corruption, tracking
criminality, facilitating access to education or health services, helping
to search for the cure for neglected diseases, promoting citizen
participation on the government, improving tourism-related services, etc.

Although we have observed an explosion of the number of structured data
sources shared on the “Web of Data”, the majority of the available Web
content is still unstructured or semi-structured -- e.g. encoded in
(hyper-) textual documents. Web content (structured, unstructured and
semi-structured) often makes references to other documents or to entities
described in structured data sources (e.g. Linked Data). Moreover,
structured data sources provide entity to entity interconnections,
resulting in a Web of Linked Entities spanning structured and unstructured

We believe that interconnecting and sharing explicit interconnections
between documents and open data sources on the Web will increase the value
of each data source and enable a number of innovative applications that
leverage both the individual data sources and their interconnections.

Submissions will be judged based on originality, potential impact and
pertinence to the subject of the workshop. Note to prospective participants:
if you run a website that has (potential) social impact, but you are not an
expert on WoLE research/technologies, or if you are a technical person that
needs ideas for applications with high potential for the region, we have
prepared a team for assisting you with questions/answers at:


We will award up to 2 iPad2 to the best application(s).
