Linked Open Data (LOD) - W3C Track @ WWW2010


The Linked Open Data Camp, organized by W3C, will be held at the upcoming 19th International World Wide Web Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina (USA), on 29 April 2010. See W3C Track @ WWW2010 for a more detailed agenda.

The event will feature a mix of structured content (talks, demos, lightning talks, etc.) and unstructured content. Topics of discussion for the two afternoon sessions will be selected at the camp during the mroning session. This Wiki page is intended to collect suggestions in advance and to record the discussions that will be held on site.

If you're willing to lead a discussion, please add your name to a topic below. Thx!

Pre-camp Topic suggestions

Feel free to edit this section and append your own suggestion to the list or refine an already suggested topic!

  • Vocabularies
  • Identity (alternatives and refinement for owl:sameAs)
  • Crawling through the LOD
  • Visualizing
  • User Interfaces
  • User scripts for server-side Semantic Apps
  • Methods of mapping public databases to LOD
  • Metadata

Lightning Talks (LTs)

Anything from announcements, controversial statements, project proposals, observations, etc. is great material for a lightning talk.

Old idea for talks: one slide (optional) and two minutes time (sharp).

Maybe a better idea: as many slides as you want, 3 minutes talk, 2 minutes questions/answers. Since we currently have 17 talks and 90 minutes allocated, that's about right.

Suggested procedure: add your talk/topic here. Include link to slides, so we generally wont have to switch machines.
