Upcoming Event: Open Data and the Institutional Web

Jul 18, 2011 by

We are pleased to be offering a FREE 2 day workshop focussing on surfacing, using and reusing institutional data. This will be held at the University of Reading on Monday 25th July, ahead of the Institutional Web Management Workshop (IWMW 2011).

Who should come?

The event is aimed at developers, web developers, information specialists, data managers and policy makers who are interested in the provision of open data to support a variety of institutional activities.

What’s going to happen?

The day will include presentations which outline various examples if use of open data such as:

  • Several open institutional data case studies
  • Surveying data of institutional use of social media services

Time has also been allocated for a number of lightning sessions where delegates can talk about projects, technologies or issues that they think other attendees will find interesting.

In addition to the talks, there will be opportunity for participants to suggest ideas for open development activities which could be developed during the workshop. Results from the event will be presented at the Institutional Web Management Workshop 2011.

A quick preview…

The opening talk will be presented by Chris Guttridge from the University of Southampton. Here is Chris waxing lyrical about the potential for open, linked data at our Linked Data Hack Day earlier in the year…
