Thanks to funding provided by Concordia University and the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, we are happy to offer 5 scholarships to Concordia students to cover the registration fee for participating in the Semantic MediaWiki Conference (SMWCon) Spring 2014, which will take place at Concordia University from May 21–23. To be eligible, you must be currently registered as a full-time or part-time student at Concordia.

Preference will be given to those students that either have a presentation at SMWCon or are currently using (or planning to use) SMW for their research projects. Hence, in your letter of intent, you should explicitly state:

  • A brief description of the project for which you (plan to) use SMW
  • If applicable, a link to the talk/poster presentation on the SMWCon page you plan to present
  • Previous experience with SMW
  • What outcomes (software, data) of your research, if any, will be released as open source/open data

In case we receive more than five applications, the organizing committee will rank and select applicants based on the above criteria.

Application deadline is Monday, May 12th (23:59 Eastern time). Submit the following documents:

  • Letter of intent (1 page max.)
  • Letter of recommendation from a Concordia faculty member
  • Proof of Concordia student status
