Journal of Sound and Vibration - Doak Award

The Doak Award was established in 2012 by Elsevier in order to highlight the most successful paper in the Journal of Sound and Vibration each year. The award is made in the name of Professor Philip E. Doak, the first Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Sound and Vibration, and the person with whom the journal will always be inextricably linked.

Professor Doak was, by all possible standards, an exceptional editor. He encouraged new academics, in the best way possible, by combining great personal kindness with a shrewd and objective assessment of the manuscripts that came to him. This ensured an enviable academic standard for the journal, and it has been the pleasure and privilege of successive editors to attempt to emulate his style and academic standards.

The Doak Award is given for the paper which has the best combined record of downloads and citations. All papers published in the Journal across the selected review period are eligible from across the whole spectrum of sound and vibration.

Semantic Web Challenge - Supported by the Journal of Web Semantics

The Semantic web challenge is sponsored by Elsevier.

The central idea of the Semantic Web is to extend the current human-readable web by encoding some of the semantics of resources in a machine-processable form. Moving beyond syntax opens the door to more advanced applications and functionality on the Web. Computers will be better able to search, process, integrate and present the content of these resources in a meaningful, intelligent manner.

The overall objective of the challenge is to apply Semantic Web techniques in building online end-user applications that integrate, combine and deduce information needed to assist users in performing tasks.

The Semantic Web Challenge consists of two tracks: the Open Track and the Big Data Track. The key difference between the two tracks is that the Big Data Track requires the participants to make use of large-scale data sets. The Open Track has no such restrictions. The Challenge is open to everyone from industry and academia.

Applicants are required to demonstrate applications that can work on Web scale using realistic Web-quality data. The Semantic Web Challenge offers participants the chance to show the best of the Semantic Web.

The challenge is advised by a board of experts working at universities and in private industry. The advisory board also acts as a jury and awards the best applications at the yearly International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC).

The ceremony takes place during the annual ISWC.
