1. Prerequisites: You must have Firefox installed. Piggy Bank is a Firefox browser extension. You must have the Java plug-in installed for Windows and Linux, the Java Embedding plug-in for Mac OS X.

    The Piggy Bank page is designed to help you find and install any missing prerequisites, such as Firefox or a Java plug-in. Look in the upper right corner. Be sure to restart the browser if you've newly installed a Java plug-in. When you're set, you can download Piggy Bank.

  2. ACQUIRE: Click the Get Piggy Bank button in the right hand corner. Your Firefox installation may bring up a dialog at the top of the page blocking the installation for security purposes. If you trust us (or if you want a Nano), you can follow the dialog's instructions to allow us to install extensions in your browser. Click the button again to begin the install.

  3. INSTALL: Once Piggy Bank has finished downloading, restart Firefox. A wizard for configuring Piggy Bank will come up; follow the instructions. Part of the wizard involves configuring Piggy Bank to use Google maps; this is unnecessary unless you plan to make personal maps, and it can be skipped. When the wizard completes, you can add a button to your main toolbar to take you to Piggy Bank (you may need to scroll to the bottom of the button options).

  4. REGISTER: Before getting to the heart of the Nano competition, you must register an account on the ISWC2005 Semantic Bank. Go to the Tools menu, then Piggy Bank, then My Semantic Bank Accounts..., and Add... a new account. Use


    as the Bank Address, and choose an Account ID and Password.

  5. TAGGING: Now. The Nano. It goes to the people responsible for putting on the most interesting part of the conference. So getting that Nano involves tagging things in the ISWC2005 Semantic Bank. On to the tagging. First, find the talks in the Semantic Bank - here's a link to all the paper and poster talks. You could save all of them by clicking the data coin in the status bar (normally in the lower right corner of the browser window), or you can click on each individually and follow the same data coin clicking process.

    On the result page, locate the papers you'd like to tag. Type in that all-important 'interesting' string at the bottom of a talk's information box and hit the Tag button. Now hit the Publish button. You're in the running. Well, you've put someone else in the running. So don't forget to tag your own talk.

    Also of note: You can batch together operating on talks by clicking Commands and using the available buttons to tag or publish all your results, or you can defer any activity for later by using the Save All button, which downloads everything to your local Piggy Bank. You can come back to it later by clicking on the pig in your toolbar.
