The program includes Thanasis Velios and Kristen St.John introducing the Consortium and the basic premises of Linked Data. Then there will be three presentations by different groups aligned with cultural heritage/conservation who are either developing Linked Data projects or are studying the potential in their areas:

The webinar will be hosted on the zoom platform and registration is already open.

While the webinar will be two hours long, participants joining from inconvenient time zones will also be given the opportunity to watch a recording following the event.

Looking forward to seeing you online.
