Parallel Session B8: Looking at Linked Data

B8: Looking at Linked Data
Session Tag:
Tuesday 13th July 2010 16:00-17:30
Chris Gutteridge, Web Projects Manager, University of Southampton.

Linked data is a buzzword right now, but what does it mean to university web teams?

In this session we'll cover what people are likely to come to expect from a university website over the next couple of years. The message is Don't Panic. You will come away from the session with an idea of what is and is not practical, and some of the technical and political issues involved in providing useful Linked Data.

This session will avoid overlapping content with the RDFa from theory to practice session.
