Hi all,

Below is an interesting challenge related to collaborative ontology
creation.  This challenge is part of a workshop on collaborative ontology
creation, which Deana, Josh, and Ferdinando have a paper (so they may know
more about this).

It might be interesting for folks on SEEK to participate in this
challenge, since we have been thinking about some of these issues, etc.
Basically, they would like people to try out the tools, and provide
feedback (by Apr. 30th).

Subject: [protege-owl] Invitation to participate in the Collaborative
    Knowledge Creation Challenge

        Collaborative Knowledge Creation Challenge
-----------   Call for Online Participation   -------------

in cooperation with the
Workshop on Social and Collaborative
Construction of Structured Knowledge
at the 16th Intl. World Wide Web Conference (WWW2007)
April 16 - April 30, 2007

The aim of the challenge is to test existing tools for collaborative
knowledge creation, to figure out collectively what we expect of such
tools, which features are useful and which are not, and which
direction the field should follow.

We invite you to participate in the CKC  challenge to learn about the
state of the art of tools for social and collaborative construction
of structured knowledge. Until April 30, we invite everyone to try up
to six of the tools listed at <http://km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/ws/

The tools and the results of the challenge will be presented at the
Collaborative Knowledge Creation Workshop of WWW 2007 <http://
km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/ws/ckc2007> in Banff. When participating at
the challenge, you can compete for prizes for the most active
participant and most insightful feedback. You don't have to be
attending the workshop in Banff to participate in the challenge. (We
will ship you the prize if you win and don't plan to join us in
Banff). In fact, we hope to have as many people as possible to
participate so that we can learn as much as we can from the challenge.

Please go to:
