Call for Papers
The Call for Papers for the upcoming International Conference ‘Linked data and international standards for cultural heritage’ is now open. The closing date for submitting a proposal is Friday the 4th of February 2022.
We kindly invite you to contribute to the international conference ‘Linked data and international standards for cultural heritage’, which will take place at KBR, the Royal Library of Belgium, from 17-18 March, 2022.
The conference will be held in person if the Covid-19 policies allow it. If not, we will organise it virtually.
The networking project LOD-ISNI, funded by BELSPO, aims at strengthening the long-term cooperation with (inter)national partners, and at promoting the use of Linked Open Data and international standards for disclosing and valorising cultural heritage materials.
Despite the many policies and platforms to support the move to Open Data, the public availability of cultural heritage data is still limited and dispersed. Implementing linked open data techniques and international standards like ISNI (International Standard Name Identifier) makes cultural heritage data more FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable), provides an opportunity to efficiently bring together currently siloed information, and enables synergies with other organisations across different domains, repositories, collections and systems.
Gathering key actors to discuss state-of-the-art solutions and lessons learned, this conference serves a twofold purpose:
- empower the cultural heritage sector, as well as research institutions and book professionals in their digital transformation
- develop a long-lasting network that will enhance international and cross domain collaboration.
