In the light of a fast growing interest on Linked Data in the Digital Humanities and the potential of LOD for overwriting established disciplinary limits, this year’s symposium aims to focus on the communities within this emerging “linked pasts network,” with their differing dynamics and workflows.
In a series of six sequential sessions, representatives and practitioners of LOD-communities will assess, discuss and review their approaches along three main themes:
These sessions will be complemented by an extensive poster session and parallel breakout-discussions on three special topics. A final wrap-up session will collect results and help to identify an agenda for future Linked Pasts activities.
The three themed sessions will be introduced by invited speakers, discussed in breakout groups and summarized in a plenary talk.
