  • 1.  REMINDER: Deadline approaching for the Call for Proposals for the LD4 Conference on Linked Data

    Posted Apr 05, 2022 06:56 AM

    Call for Proposals: 2022 LD4 Conference on Linked Data, 

    "Linking Global Knowledge"

    Submission deadline: Monday, April 15, 2022

    Less than 2 weeks are left to propose content for the 2021 LD4 Conference!


    The deadline to propose content for the 2022 LD4 Conference is fast approaching!  All proposals are due April 15, 2022.


    The 2022 LD4 Conference will be held online from July 11-15. We are accepting proposals for content in a variety of formats and we invite you to submit your proposal to be part of creating this conference! By bringing together a broad range of perspectives, the conference seeks to foster a community of practice for linked data in cultural heritage institutions.


    The conference will include activities tailored to all levels of experience with linked data, with a focus on themes of:

    • Linked Data visualization
    • Linked Data and ethics
    • Workspace learning and new competencies in Linked Data
    • Linked Data workflows
    • Linked Data and Open Knowledge
    • Linked Data quality assessment

    We are accepting proposals for content in a variety of formats and especially encourage proposals from participants from groups and regions that are traditionally underrepresented in conferences related to linked data in libraries and other cultural heritage organizations, as well as proposals from early career professionals. Successful proposals will focus on concrete ways that linked data impacts GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) institutions, and will share pathways that allow others to participate in linked data.  


    To submit a proposal, please fill out the form: https://forms.gle/bz9BPh36C77KhGQ67


    The Program Committee will select proposals based on the following criteria:

    • Support of the conference theme and goals
    • Contribution to the ongoing linked data conversation within the GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) community
    • Potential to encourage attendee participation and engagement and make the most of bringing people together "live", online
    • Representation from groups, regions, and topics that are traditionally underrepresented in conferences related to linked data

    Details

    • The conference will take place online, July 11-15, 2022.
    • The language of the conference is English, but there may be opportunities to meet in language-specific groups if there is interest.
    • The conference is free of charge, and general registration will open in May.
    • The conference is an initiative of the LD4 Community.
