The groundbreaking Rexplore system for analysing scholarly data was awarded first prize, as Best Semantic Publishing Application, at the “Semantic Publishing Challenge”, which was held in the context of the 11th Extended Semantic Web Conference. Rexplore was chosen from a number of innovative Semantic Web applications by a jury comprising both researchers and commercial publishers. The award was given on the basis of a number of criteria, which included potential impact, originality, technological advance, and quality of the demonstration. In particular the demonstration was so successful that it was only allowed to finish well over two hours after the expected end time.
Rexplore leverages novel solutions in large-scale data mining, semantic technologies and visual analytics, to provide an innovative environment for exploring and making sense of scholarly data.
