First CODE Publication Accepted

We are happy to announce that the first publication that comes out of the CODE project has been accepted. The paper Unleashing Semantics of Research Data will be presented at the Second Workshop on Big Data Benchmarking (WBDB2012.in) from 17–18 December 2012 in Pune, India.

The paper presents the vision of the CODE project along with the major research issues. You can read the abstract below.

Research depends to a large degree on the availability and quality of primary research data, i.e., data generated through experiments and evaluations. While the Web in general and Linked Data in particular provide a platform and the necessary technologies for sharing, managing and utilizing research data, an ecosystem supporting those tasks is still missing. The vision of the CODE project is the establishment of a sophisticated ecosystem for Linked Data. Here, the extraction of knowledge encapsulated in scientific research paper along with its public release as Linked Data serves as the major use case. Further, Visual Analytics approaches empower end users to analyse, integrate and organize data. During these tasks, specific Big Data issues are present.
