 First South-American Summer School on Ontology Engineering and
 the Semantic Web (SSSW_(at)_Brazil 2013) 5-11 May, 2013
 Florianopolis, Brazil http://sssw.org/brazil/how-to-apply/.

Applications open until February 25th.

We are delighted to announce the first South-American Summer
School on Ontology Engineering and the Semantic Web (SSSW_(at)_Brazil
2013), which will take place on 5-11 May, 2013 at the Recanto
Champagnat in Lagoa da Conceição, Florianopolis, Brazil.
SSSW_(at)_Brazil will be a spin-off of the groundbreaking SSSW series
of summer schools, which started in 2003. Consistently with the
ethos of the SSSW series of summer schools, SSSW_(at)_Brazil will also
follow a "hands-on" pedagogical approach, combining the practical
with the theoretical, and adding teamwork and a competitive
element to the mix. Specifically, lecture materials will be
augmented with hands-on practical workshops, while work on
developing and presenting a project in cooperation with other
participants will serve as a means to consolidate the knowledge
and skills gained from lectures and practical sessions. Prizes
will be awarded to the best projects at the end of the week.
Participants will be provided with electronic versions of all
course lectures and all necessary tools and environments for the
hands-on sessions. PC access with all tools pre-installed will be
available on site as well.

SSSW_(at)_Brazil will provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment
in which participants will benefit not only from the formal and
practical sessions but also from informal and social interactions
with established researchers and the other participants to the
school. To further facilitate interaction and exchange of ideas,
a poster session will also take place, which will provide an
opportunity for attendees to present and obtain feedback on their
research or professional work.

The language used in the school will be English.

To ensure a high ratio between tutors and students the school
will be limited to 50 participants maximum. These will include
PhD students, academics and professionals.
