CSWS2013 summer school and keynote in Shanghai

ShanghaiLast week, Knud Moeller from datalysator and I were invited to give a set of lectures about Linked Data in the CSWS 2013 summer school in Shanghai, China. As far as we are concerned the summer school was a success. About 60 students received three mornings worth of lectures about the principles and practice of Linked Data from the two of us. In the afternoon, they heard talks about Semantic Web efforts from the likes of Baidu and Google.

Interested students Because of the unavailability/-reachability of twitter, facebook, slideshare and wordpress in China, the lecture materual can be found are online as pdfs through a HTML page at my VU homepage.

I also had the honour of giving a keynote speech about Linked Data for Cultural Heritage and Digital History in the main conference. Those slides can be found on Slideshare.
