Best Paper Award in ICWL'09

The paper that I presented in ICWL'09, Are tags from Mars and descriptors from Venus? A study on the ecology of educational resource metadata, was awarded the Best Paper Award. That was pretty dam cool! The picture below shows how psyched I was to pick up the award at the gala dinner. You'll find the paper from here and a news release from here.

The picture is by Kevin Chen from RWTH, Aachen.

Ok, this is an inside joke: I've named the pic "la vengeance se mange très-bien froide", for those who know the story, you guessed that the timing of this award could not have been better! Thanks for the co-authors and the jury :)
