Apologies for cross-posting.

The OKOA scientific committee invites submission of abstracts for its 
2016 workshop that this year will be focused on any aspect of open 


"A world where knowledge creates power for the many, not the few.
A world where data frees us - to make informed choices about how we live,
what we buy and who gets our vote.
A world where information and insights are accessible - and apparent - 
to everyone.
This is the world we choose."

This statement, reported in the Open Knowledge Foundation web site, 
summarizes very well
the thought and the aims of the Open Knowledge Movement. The Cultural 
Heritage Knowledge
and his open dissemination is an important right and in fact occupies a 
position within the international human right discussion.

Why? Because a deep understanding of cultural heritage can provide 
people right instruments
to support social, scientific, technical and cultural progress, to 
improve themselves and being “free”.

How do We reach this goal?
In our opinion, only believing in the 'open thinking' principle. It 
implies, indeed, an open
and total access to the cultural heritage and to data, studies and 
documents produced about it.
So, the aim of the Open Knowledge Open Arts workshop is to investigate 
how the open sharing
of the data, in a readable form for all people and with no limitation 
reuse can help research,
production and fruition of Cultural Heritage.

WHEN: 26 February 2016
WHERE: Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica, University of Catania 
(Città Universitaria, polo scientifico di via S. Sofia)
CONTACT:  Cristiano Longo longo@dmi.unict.it
