Subject: Akoma Ntoso Challenge.gov by Library of Congress

Dear LegalDocML TC members,

please find the announce from Tina Gheen, US Library of Congress that I am posting on her behalf.


Dear LegalDocML TC members,

To help advance the development of international exchange standards for legislative data, the US Library of Congress is sponsoring data challenges incorporating the Akoma Ntoso open standard for legal documents. The first challenge, Markup of US Legislation in Akoma Ntoso, opened today and invites competitors to create representations of four specific US bills using the most recent Akoma Ntoso XML schema.

Rather than trying to convert existing US bill XML to the proposed Akoma Ntoso standard, this challenge asks competitors to markup the raw text versions of US bills using the structure, elements, and attributes of the Akoma Ntoso schema and produce an entirely new XML version of the bill.

To learn more about the challenge, please visit Challenge.gov, the Law Library of Congress blog, In Custodia Legis, or read the official press release.

Tina Gheen
