- SFSW2010 is over, you can find impressions from the workshop here.
- Alexandre Passant and Pablo Mendes were winning this years Scripting Challenge with their submissionsparqlPuSH: Proactive notification of data updates in RDF stores using PubSubHubbub.
- List of accepted papers and programme are online.
- Easychair Submission site is open!
- Talis has very kindly sponsored the challenge with €300 for the best entry!
- This Workshop webpage is up!
- This year ESWC is trying new forms of co-located events, and offered us the oppertunity to be a Challenge-focussed event, instead of just a workshop. Since, we traditionally have a Scripting Challenge anyway, and the focus of the workshop has always been on hands-on working code, this seemed like a good idea. Enjoy your new Scripting for the Semantic Web Challenge 2010! The practical effect of this is that the workshop papers and challenge papers are now combined, and we require demos of all submissions!
SFSW2010 is a half-day workshop in the morning of 31st of May

This workshop is concerned with the show-casing tools, experiences and technologies for the development of such lightweight tools, especially focusing on the use of scripting languages.
This Workshop is the 6th Scripting Workshop organized at ESWC, usually we had a separate Scripting Challenge, this year the two are merged into one track.
We invite submissions touching on any of the below topics. Each entry should consist of a paper, and every entry must include a downloadable or online demo. ! Each entry will be judged by several people from a Programme Committee, as well as the Workshop Chairs. The best 5 entries will be invited to present and demo their systems at the half-day event at ESWC. For the best entry a prize will be awarded

Talis has kindly sponsored this years Scripting Challenge, and we will award a cash-prize of €300 to the winning entry!
Submissions must include a paper of up to 12 pages, formatted in the LNCS style. The paper must include details on what makes the contribution novel and interesting as well as instructions for accessing the demo. The demo must be available from the submission deadline at least until the acceptance notification, however, we would encourage participants to leave their demo up till the event is over. Demos can be downloadable or online, they do not need to be public, but access details must be included in the paper.
