What, when, where


A 3-day workshop in hackathon/sprint mode: concrete work on a prototype implementation of the IKS semantic engine, roughly based on the ideas suggested at http://www.slideshare.net/bdelacretaz/title-the-iks-restful-semantic-engine-lets-get-started and http://dev.day.com/content/ddc/blog/2009/11/iks-pragmatic-view-update.html

The codename for this is IKS FISE.

The goal is to write software with tests and/or demo scenarios that demonstrate a few semantic use cases (at the RESTful interface level) using the semantic engine: auto tagging, link suggestions, etc.

The motivation is to help the IKS industrial partners express how they imagine using such a semantic engine in their products, based on concrete working prototype software.

Code and documentation

See FISEcodeAndDocs, also includes reports of what happened at the hackathon.

Communication channels during the hackathon

Practical Information

The hackathon will take place in Furtwangen from March 29th to 31st, see travel information below.

We will start at 2PM on the 29th, and end mid-afternoon on the 31st so that people can travel on those days.


Space is limited and most seats are taken by IKS consortium members and a few invited community members - see the internal IKS drupal site for the list of participants.

If you're a member of the IKS community and would like to participate, feel free to contact an IKS representative, and we'll see if we can fit you in.
