Michael Charno and myself are organizing the following workshop in Vienna 
as part of CHNT18 in November:-
 
Belling the Cat: Making CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM) data 
available as Linked Open Data (LOD):
A practical hands-on workshop of a complete solution using freeware

Organizers: Stephen STEAD | Michael CHARNO, UK

The mice meet in council to debate the problem of the new cat in the 
district. One suggests that a bell should be attached to the cat to give a 
warning. This is greeted with universal approval until someone asks “How?” 

Cultural Heritage Informatics specialists are often heard to say “just 
publish your CRM data as linked open data so that others can use it”, but 
how do we actually do that? This workshop aims to lead attendees through 
the process of taking an export of delimited text (ie. comma separated 
values) from their database, converting it to CRM compatible RDF triples 
and then making them available via a triple store for consumption by humans 
or machines as linked open data. The course will provide an introduction to 
linked open data and then will lead users through a cookbook of simple to 
follow techniques for creating and publishing it. All software used in the 
workshop will be freeware and runs on the free and open source operating 
system Linux. The software and operating system are uniquely capable of 
running on underpowered hardware, making deploying it simple even with 
limited support from an IT department or support services. The full set of 
software and guidelines will be available to attendees (if you bring a USB 
stick)

This Workshop is supported by  http://austria.emc.com/index.htm
