LOD-LAM-NYC: Afternoon LOD-LAM Hands-On Session


LOD-LAM-NYC: A Day of Linked Data Discussion & Activities for the New York Metropolitan Area.

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.
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM          Break for Lunch
1:30 PM - 6:00 PM            LOD-LAM Hands-On: Linked Data in Practice
The afternoon session - located in the Margaret Liebman Berger Forum - is designed for metadata experts, application developers, and others interested in exploring Linked Data in practice. By the end of the session, you will have worked with a dataset, used free, available tools, and will be equipped to continue developing these skill independently. Though the session will move quickly, technical experience is not a prerequisite. 

The afternoon session will feature:
  • Demos, Lightning Talks & Breakout Introductions
  • Linked Data In Practice Breakout Sessions:
To register for the morning session, please visit http://www.metro.org/en/cev/162.

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.
