Ontology Summit participants,    (02)

This is a call for Ontology Summit 2014 Hackathon (Track E) teams    (03)

Mission    (04)

The mission of the Hackathon
is to have fun during a 1-day long international hacking event
exploring hacking solutions that span both paradigm and technology
gaps between the Big Data, Semantic Web, Application Ontology domains.
In particular, the structured data gap (tables vs triples vs exotic
specialized data structures vs text), schema reusability gap (ad hoc
schemas vs ontology), and the hybrid reasoning gap ("statistical
reasoning" vs "axiomatic reasoning"). We particularly encourage
projects that cross a minimum of two (ideally three) of these themes,
but hackathon teams from all areas of applied or theoretical
ontologies are welcomed!    (05)

The Hackathon includes both software coding and data preparation that
provide example of cross-domain experience for hackathon teams
members.  Hackathons are best suited to short projects  dealing with
tools (data modelers, reasoners, ontology editors, etc.), datasets
(data models, vocabularies, ontologies, etc.) and approaches for:    (06)

* identifying candidate tools/techniques for scaling up ontological
approaches (e.g. sparse matrix representations for speed up),    (07)

* using standards for data conversion (e.g. CSV to semantic),    (08)

* using ontology and/or semantic web tools in data federation (e.g.    (09)

reference data libraries or vocabularies),    (010)

* providing mapping/conversion cases of data models, semantic data    (011)

annotations, domain ontologies,    (012)

* applying ontology patterns for semantic annotation and data transformation    (013)

and query    (014)

* converting of public interest datasets to semantic annotated data and    (015)

publishing it    (016)

* provide examples of "schema-free" approach for data processing    (017)

* demonstrate statistical and logical reasoning in one task    (018)

* infrastructure providing for Ontology Summit (e.g. website, data repository)    (019)

* ... any other project that will be suggested by participants.    (020)

Projects that build upon and integrate themes from elsewhere across
Ontology Summit-2014 are preferred.    (021)

The goal of this year's hackathon is to build upon the success of last
year's collaboration
stimulating live communication and collaboration across data, semantic
and ontology communities. In particular we hope that practical
hackathon projects can bring together theoretical and applied
perspectives.    (022)

Work Plan    (023)

Here is a timeline for the hackathon:    (024)

* invite teams for participation (beginning now….)    (025)

* publish suggestions that "fit to Ontology Summit agenda" (till 20 February    (026)

to gather teams)    (027)

* present your team "sales pitch" at Hackathon Track E 2-hour session, 20th    (028)

February 2014    (029)

* let teams be populated by new members that interested in particular projects    (030)

* have fun at 24 hour (1-day) hackathon event, 29 March 2014, Saturday. We    (031)

will establish communication infrastructure for all participants.    (032)

* There will be a short Hackathon report at Session-12 (Synthesis-II -
Technical Tracks and Hackathon)    (033)

3 April 2014    (034)

* collect reports from participating teams    (035)

* provide synthesis of results from reports to Ontology Summit
community at the 2014 Symposium    (036)

If you have any questions, please get in touch. We expect several
Hackathon teams will be assembled during early February. You can use
the Ontolog Summit List (ontology-summit@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) to post
your suggestions and call of participants to your team. Also you can
use wiki 
 or contact the Hackathon organizers to help refine your ideas or look
for advise and collaborators.    (037)

Every team lead should provide us with possible project description,
will present her project (10 minutes) during February 20th regular
Ontology Summit Track E (Hackathon) session, lead his team during
actual Hackathon Event 29th of March and provide report of results
that will be published on Ontology Summit 2014 website.    (038)

Looking forward to collaboration and fun,    (039)
