ISWC: Legal and Social Frameworks for Sharing Data on the Web

Sunday 25 October 2009, Washington, DC

I’m really pleased to be participating in an open data tutorial at this year’s International Semantic Web Conference in Washington DC, together with Leigh and Tom from Talis and Kaitlin from Science Commons. Thanks to Talis for helping get me over to DC for the event.

We’re really excited as it’s a half day on the topic, which means that we get to cover it in depth. I’ll cover the legal bits, while Tom and Leigh do the semantic end of the spectrum and Kaitlin the social aspects. Slides and more info, closer to time.

I’ll be staying through most of the conference, so if you are planning on being there and want to chat open data, please give me a shout.

Also, for those of you that can’t make it, we’re doing a workshop in London on 13th November: Open Data and the Semantic Web.
