Community Projects

The W3C Semantic Web Education and Outreach (SWEO) Interest Group wishes to encourage a community of developers to come together to work on some Semantic Web projects. This rally has the goal of using our collective input to generating real running code, that can help us to demonstrate the value of the Semantic Web to a wide user base. We want to encourage developers to work together to create something that will make a real difference to people's lives today. This is not a competition like the Semantic Web Challenge, rather an effort to bring together people to share ideas, with the added possibility of being able to realise the ideas by working with like minded programmers.

We would like to ask you a few questions to help us to identify the best possible projects.

  1. Please provide a brief description of your proposed project.
  2. Why did you select this particular project?
  3. Why do you think this project will have a wide impact?
  4. Can your project be easily integrated with other wide-spread systems? If so, which and how?
  5. Why is it that this project should be done right now, i.e. why should people prioritise this ahead of other projects?
  6. What can you contribute to the project?
  7. What contribution would you need from others?
  8. What standardisation should the Semantic Web community at large undertake to support the project?
  9. How does your project encourage others not currently involved with Semantic Web technologies to get involved (by providing data or make a coding commitment)?
  10. What would be the main benefit of using Semantic Web technologies to achieve the goals of the project, compared to other technologies?

The submission is now closed, the SWEO is now discussing the projects to decide which to promote.
