We started to build from scratch, and then we reworked the back end of the tool entirely after we got comments from the judges in the semi-final round. It's really exciting to work in such a dynamic manner."

"We are delighted to award the first and second prizes to Sean and Vit." remarked Dr. Eduard Hovy, Chair Panel of Judges and Director of the Natural Language Group, Information Sciences Institute at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, "Their tools demonstrate thoughtful design, provide genuine and immediate improvements in scientific communication and point the way toward interesting new possibilities for the future. Given so many excellent submissions, it was very difficult to choose between the four finalists. All of the tools were developed with a strong sense of the community's needs."

"I was impressed not only with the quality of the tools the finalists developed, but with the atmosphere of collaboration," added Herman van Campenhout, CEO, Elsevier.
