Applications for delegates to the International LODLAM Summit in Montreal will open at 8am, PST October 2, 2012, and closing 5pm PST, November 2, 2012. Delegates will be selected and notified by November 16, 5pm PST.
Unfortunately, we can only facilitate about 100 delegates at the LODLAM Summit, so we’re asking prospective delegates to fill out a short application, which will be available on October 2 at http://summit2013.lodlam.net with full details. Delegates will be selected to insure diversity of: leadership, technical expertise, field of work/research, and geographic location. Additionally, preference will be given in order of application submissions.
Because of the limited space, we are asking that institutions select one person as a delegate. We know this is difficult in bigger institutions, but one delegate will need to represent and report back to the institution.
Please note that this is not an informational conference, but a meeting focused on forwarding the adoption of Linked Open Data in libraries, archives, and museums worldwide. Ideal candidates will be actively involved in or planning Linked Open Data projects. Throughout the year, we will hold meetings and seminars at various locations around the world that are open to more participants. All summit proceedings will be open and published in real time via the summit2013.lodlam.net blog, twitter, and potential other medium.
