Dear all

Apologies for X-posting but many of you may be interested in a
forthcoming workshop the Pelagios project
(http://pelagios-project.blogspot.com) are hosting at KCL on Linking
GeoData in the Humanities on March 24th. The event is free but if
you'd like to attend please sign up at:


We'd also be glad if you could circulate this to any other parties or
mailing list that may have an interest.

Hope to see you there!

Linking Open Data: the Pelagios ontology workshop
Thursday, March 24, 2011 from 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom

The Pelagios workshop is an open forum for discussing the issues
associated with and the infrastructure required for developing methods
of linking open data (LOD), specifically geodata. There will be a
specific emphasis on places in the ancient world, but the practices
discussed should be equally applicable to contemporary named
locations. The Pelagios project will also make available a proposal
for a lightweight methodology prior to the event in order to focus
discussion and elicit critique.

The one-day event will have 3 sessions dedicated to:
1) Issues of referencing ancient and contemporary places online
2) Lightweight ontology approaches
3) Methods for generating, publishing and consuming compliant data

Each session will consist of several short (15 min) papers followed by
half an hour of open discussion. The event is FREE to all but places
are LIMITED so participants are advised to register early. This is
likely to be of interest to anyone working with digital humanities
resources with a geospatial component.

Preliminary Timetable
10:30-1:00              Session 1: Issues
2:00-3:30                Session 2: Ontology
4:00-5:30                Session 3: Methods
