Dear everyone,

Stefan Schlobach and myself are organizing a workshop on "Down scaling the
Semantic Web" at the conference ESWC2012.
This conference is one of the major one for research done on the Semantic
Web, it will take place in May 2012 in Greece [1].

Semantic Web technologies are aimed at improving data management by
providing standards and tools to encode, share and use data. So far most of
the applications making use of that technology are designed to be run on
large scale machines (Cloud hosted) accessed through the Web. With the
contributor project "SemanticXO", we started to look at bringing these
technologies to Sugar and the XO [2]. This work has recently caught the
interest of the research community and with the workshop DownScale2012 we
would like to build upon that.

The workshop will be about the challenges in bringing Semantic Web
technologies on constrained environement and the potential benefits of
doing it. There will be a morning of discussions and an afternoon  on
hacking with Sugar + SemanticXO (see [3] for more informations).

We are looking for someone to help us organise the hacking afternoon.
Ideally that person would be someone that is experienced in developing for
Sugar, is able to come to Heraklion in May and has an interest in Semantic
Web research. If you see yourself in that description, please drop us a
mail :-)

Christophe & Stefan
