    Call for Proposals: 2021 LD4 Conference on Linked Data, "Building Connections Together"

    Submission deadline: Monday, April 12, 2021

    Website: http://bit.ly/ld42021 


    The deadline to propose content for the 2021 LD4 Conference is fast approaching!  All proposals are due Monday, April 12, by 11:59 pm PST.

    The 2021 LD4 Conference will be held online from July 12-23. We are accepting proposals for content in a variety of formats and we invite you to submit your proposal to be part of creating this conference! By bringing together a broad range of perspectives, the conference seeks to foster a community of practice for linked data in cultural heritage institutions.

    The conference will include activities tailored to all levels of experience with linked data, with a focus on themes of:

    • Linked data education
    • Inclusion of diverse voices
    • Practical steps toward linked data adoption
    • Reliability and availability of linked data
    • Incorporating linked data into day-to-day library operations
    • Linked data advocacy

    We are accepting proposals for content in a variety of formats and especially encourage proposals (conference or pre-conference) from participants from groups and regions that are traditionally underrepresented in conferences related to linked data in libraries and other cultural heritage organizations, as well as proposals from early career professionals. Successful proposals will focus on concrete ways that linked data impacts GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) institutions, and will share pathways that allow others to participate in linked data.  Please see the full Call for Proposals for additional details.
