I’m very excited to pass on the announcement of an upcoming event put together by Corey Harper, Jason Kucsma and Ben Vershbow.
Please note that the smaller afternoon session has already filled up there is now a wait list, but we still have slots open for the morning plenary session.
LOD-LAM-NYC: A Day of Linked Data Discussion & Activities for the NY Metropolitan Area
Thurs, Feb 23, 9:00am-6:00pm
There is no fee to attend, but registration is required.
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
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 on February 23, 2012. The event will be comprised of two separate sessions, a morning plenary, and a smaller afternoon “hands-on” workshop. While these events are being offered free-of-charge, separate registration is required for each (see below for links).
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.
