Platforms for Working with Linked Data

Monday, June 25th, 2018

@ DH2018 in Mexico City

This is a call for participation in a half-day workshop on Platforms for Working with Linked Data that will take place on the on June 25th, 2018, one day prior to the start of Digital Humanities 2018, in Mexico City. The workshop seeks to bring together a wide selection of LODscholars, researchers, and advocates to share ideas for future LOD tools or platforms.

Prospective participants should submit the following:

1.       Up to 3 tools, platforms, or features of these that you would like to see highlighted at the workshop.

2.       Details about your LOD tool (if relevant), including a link to the tool, and a brief summary of its features (one-page max).

Submissions should be via this Google Form by April 20th:

The submission form requests permission to make your submission part of an openly available online resource with a CC-BY-NC license. Projects or researchers unable to participate are invited to submit a summary for inclusion in this resource (see below).

The 2017 workshop resulted in this collection: Advancing Linked Open Data in the Humanities. We intend to publish the 2018 collection of LOD tool descriptions in a similar open-access format.

After April 20th, the conference program committee will review the tool descriptions and the topics given by potential attendees and will send out a schedule of presentations no later than April 30th.

Please note: If you are unable to attend DH2018 but would still like to contribute a description of your LOD tool to the growing open source resource, please fill in the form above (it will ask you if you are attending). This link will remain open after the workshop call is complete to collect further contributions.

Looking forward to hearing about the exciting work everyone is doing with Linked Open Data!
