* First South-American Summer School on Ontology Engineering and the 
Semantic Web *
***(SSSW at Brazil 2013)*
5-11 May, 2013
Florianopolis, Brazil

_*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.__
