14:00 – 15:00 Linked Data – Introduction in two parts

Presented by: Michael Luggen, Adrian Gschwend

Description : Linked Data, Semantic Web, RDF, Triples? What is this all about?

15:30 – 17:30 Wikidata data importing

Presented by: Maarten Dammers

Description: In the Wikidata data importing we’ll have a look at (mass) importing of data to Wikidata. What kind of data is suitable? What is a proven approach? What are the steps to take? I’ll take to past imports as example: Rijksmonumenten in the Netherlands (cultural heritage monuments) and paintings from the Rijksmuseum.

Presented by: Daniel Mietchen

During this presentation you get some information about the WikiProject Wikidata for research. This porject has been founded late last year, and its first activity was to draft a cross-disciplinary research proposal to integrate Wikidata with research workflows. The drafting took place in public, the proposal was submitted to the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, and options to build on this initiative in discipline- or country-specific settings are currently being explored.
