Linked Open Data in Libraries Archives and Museums 2017 Summit

Share

The Fourth International Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives and Museums (LODLAM) summit will be held in Venice, Italy, at the Fondazione Cini June 28-29 , 2017.

LODLAM stands for Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives and Museums. Linked data is a combination of techniques, tools and web standards that enable the World Wide Web to evolve from a web of documents to a web of data. When applied to libraries, archives, and museums, linked data transforms the way we discover, analyze, and visualize cultural, scientific and government information.

The LODLAM Summit brings together thought leaders from around the world working in digital cultural heritage, eScience, and the digital humanities to debate, network and share their ideas, latest projects, hacking skills, data management methods, and to participate in the LODLAM Challenge.

Entries for the technical challenge can be submitted and updated from now until midnight on Friday April 07th (somewhere in the world).

Each of 5 finalist teams will be awarded a seat at the 2017 LODLAM Summit in Venice and a travel grant of  USD$1,000 thanks to the support of all of the Summit sponsors.

The five finalists will pitch their project in a Challenge lightning round at the Summit and to a panel of judges who will choose winning teams for the following prizes:

-2017 LODLAM Open Data Prize – A winner will be awarded this USD$1,000 prize where making cultural heritage material openly available has been a core aspect of a linked open data project. Synaptica provides continued support for making data openly available and have provided the sponsorship for the prize.

-2017 LODLAM Grand Prize – A winner will be awarded this USD$2,000 prize because they have demonstrated significant impact (a mix of social, cultural, and technical factors).
