Thought I would share this international event taking place in San Francisco
this June 2-3. http://lod-lam.net.
If you're doing any work with libraries, archives, museums or cultural
heritage institutions, or building applications with such data, this is a
great opportunity to gather with colleagues from around the world. As space
is limited, we'll be accepting applications through Feb. 28.
Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.

The International Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums
Summit (LOD-LAM) will be held in San Francisco on 2-3 June 2011.
LOD-LAM will convene leaders in their respective areas of expertise from the
humanities and sciences to catalyse practical and actionable approaches to
publishing Linked Open Data, specifically:
* Identify the tools and techniques for publishing and working with Linked
* Draft precedents and policy for licensing and copyright considerations
regarding the publishing of library, archive, and museum metadata.
* Publish definitions and promote use cases that will give LAM staff the
tools they need to advocate for Linked Open Data in their institutions.
Applications open from 1 February - 28 February. Limited travel grants
will be available. The hashtag for the event is #lodlam.
Please go to http://lod-lam.net/summit/ for more information.
