Horizontal Tabs

General information
Tuesdays, 09:15 - 12:30 (biweekly)

The chicken vs. egg problem in relation to Linked Data is one of the major challenges that are being addressed by the LOD community [1]. Although the amount of data is constantly growing, applications that efficiently reuse the published data rarely become popular.
In this seminar we explore new ways of using and combining Linked Data and making it available on every type of smart phone through the use of HTML 5 technology.

This year the course will explore publishing Linked Data (and mashups) on mobile devices through the use of HTML 5 technology.
In the introductory lecture an overview of the technologies and possible projects will be presented. The students will form groups of two or three and agree with the lecturer on the project. The lecturer will support and interact with the students during the project preparation. Finally the project will be presented and evaluated in the last lecture.
Students are required to give a presentation and write a 10 page summary on the project (both in English).
