Introduction

This page lists the submissions to the PIRE challenge during the Edinburgh workshop 2013. This was the into provided to the students (note, I changed some rules, prize and mail address):

Prizes will be awarded for the groups that make the most advances against the questions posed by Dr Grossman in his talk on Monday 17 June, listed again below for convenience.
  • There will be three prizes:
  • First prize of $500
  • Two second prizes of $250.
  • Teams may submit achievements before 16:00 BST on Thursday 20 June to competition@opensciencedatacloud.org
  • The judging will be an independent person selected by the organisers.  The decision of the judge is final and we reserve the right to not award one or more of the prizes.
  • Teams should contain people from at least two sites and may not contain individuals who are employed on the OSDC PIRE project.
  • The submission should be a short definition of what has been achieved and references to the new results, data or algorithms available on the OSDC.
  • There will a separate $200 cash prize for any OSDC employee who is on one of the winning teams.

The Questions:
Question 1 :
How can we build a plugin structure so that Tukey can be extended by other users and by other communities?
Question 2 : How can we add partner sites at other locations that extend the OSDC?
Question 3 : What data can we add to facilitate data intensive cross-disciplinary discoveries?
Question 4
