DC 2016 Post-Conference Workshop: Designing Your Linkable Data -- Guided Brainstorming

A session at DC 2016: International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications

Sunday 16th October, 2016

8:30am to 5:30pm (CET)

Full Day Workshop

Do you have resources you want to publish on the Web? Don't know where you should begin or how those resources should or can be described?

Working in groups with common interests, workshop participants will engage in hands-on activities developing an application profile (AP). We invite participants to bring their own real world problems in order to ground the activities of the workshop in practical ways. By the end of the workshop, participants will understand the concept of AP, the processes used in their development, and their importance to the Linked Open Data ecosystem. Participants will engage in hands-on activities developing an application profile. Groups will be comprised of people with comment interests or context of application.

An AP is a kind of schema and documentation that: (a) defines metadata records, (b) describes the structure and the content of those records, (c) defines which properties will be used from existing schemas and those you need to create, and (d) teaches you how optimized the result for your application domain. application profiles are a central construct in developing semantically interoperable metadata for the Web and understanding the processes in their development is central to creating metadata that speaks the language of the Linked Open Data ecosystem.
