Linked Pasts is a symposium series dedicated to facilitating practical and pragmatic developments in Linked Open Data in History, Classics, Geography and Archaeology. It brings together leading exponents of Linked Data from both academia and the Cultural Heritage sector to address the obstacles to and issues raised by developing a digital ecosystem of online open materials.

Day 1 will use a series of position papers to set up discussion on the themes of Time, Place and People, and issues of Open Data and Users. This will be followed by a series of presentations from the successful recipients of the Pelagios resource development grants. All participants will have the opportunity to present posters during the extended evening networking session.

Day 2 will comprise a series of activities to identify and plan concrete steps for reducing barriers to producing and making use of Linked Data in real-world scenarios.

Refreshments (tea/coffee, lunch) will be provided, along with a reception on Thursday 15th. The event is free of charge but places are limited.

A number of travel bursaries will also be available. For bursary information, please contact commons@pelagios.org.
