[I imagine this will be concerned with HE data, broadly --  Damian]

This is a free two day workshop (which includes free accommodation) 
jointly organised by the Research Revealed and DevCSI projects, more 
information about event can be found here:

http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/events/devcsi/linked_data_hackdays/

The event will bring together software developers, research information 
managers, researchers, librarians and linked data experts who are 
interested in hacking linked data, systems and services. Tool developers 
and the users of research data tools rarely have opportunities to 
experiment in a focussed way on hacking systems together; this workshop 
will facilitate collaboration between technical and non-technical people 
with the opportunity for rapid prototyping to produce solutions to real, 
practical scenarios in the UK FE and HE sectors.

Events like these are sometimes called 'Hack Days' where we will be 
encouraging participants to form teams to talk about where they see the 
potential for linked data systems and approaches for the sharing of 
content and the promotion of research information across the UK and 
globally. We hope these teams will come up with some imaginative and 
innovative ideas. The focus will be on practical solutions to scenarios 
such as "how can my system automatically discover research 
collaborators?" and tackling issues such as harvesting versus the 
querying of SPARQL endpoints, or the requirements for data security in 
the context of inter-institutional information sharing. The event will 
culminate in a series of presentations from the teams about the work 
they have carried out.


Research Revealed have kindly set up a wiki 
(http://bit.ly/LoDWorkshopWiki) to facilitate collaborative team working 
before, during and after the event. You will need to register before you 
can get access to it.
