Following the success of the LOD-LAM Summit http://lod-lam.net/summit/ in June, 2011, discussions of Cultural Heritage Linked Data have continued at a variety of Regional LOD-LAM (Linked Open Data for Libraries, Archives, and Museums) events. These events, characterized by their "Unconference" style and focus on cutting edge Semantic Web technologies, have continued to further the goals defined in the World Wide Web Consortiums Library Linked Data Incubator Report and the various outputs of the Stanford Linked Data Workshop.
Continuing this conversation, we would like to announce LOD-LAM-NYC, two related events that add up to a day of Linked Data discussions for the Cultural Heritage Sector in the NY Metropolitan Area. The event will be comprised of two separate sessions, a morning plenary (click here for more info), and a smaller afternoon "hands-on" workshop. Registration is required for each.
The afternoon session will feature:
- Demos, Lightning Talks & Breakout Introductions
- Linked Data In Practice Breakout Sessions:
This event, co-organized by Metro, The New York Public Library's NYPL Labs, and New York University, sponsored by Metro, and hosted by NYPL, will accommodate 175 attendees for the morning sessions. The afternoon workshop will be smaller, with space for up to 40 participants.
