The annual Linked Pasts conference brings together scholars, heritage professionals and other practitioners with an interest in Linked Open Data as applied to the study of the ancient and historical worlds. This sixth installment of Linked Pasts, hosted by the University of London and British Library in December 2020, will be a fully remote and online event.
Other than welcome, keynotes and wrap-up at the beginning and end of the conference, most activities will be asynchronous, with work or discussion taking place in whatever medium is most appropriate to the activity and community in question. Participation in the conference is free, but advance registration is required.
The conference organizers welcome proposals for research activities, which may include (but are not restricted to): development of standards, ontologies and research applications; discovery and integration of datasets; enrichment and annotation of textual collections; collaboration, pedagogy and community expansion; other relevant undertakings with a focus on Linked Open Data and the historical world.
To propose a stream or working group for the conference program, please fill in this form with a max. 200-word abstract outlining your suggestion, type of activity and the medium in which it will be run, and some indication of the likely participants (e.g. names, community or expected stakeholders) by end of Friday October 2, 2020.
