Linked Ancient World Data Institute

From the ISAW blog:

ISAW will host the Linked Ancient World Data Institute (LAWDI) from May 31st to June 2nd, 2012 in New York City. Applications are due 17 February 2012.

LAWDI, funded by the Office of Digital Humanities of the National Endowment for Humanities, will bring together an international faculty of practitioners working in the field of Linked Data with twenty attendees who are implementing or planning the creation of digital resources.

More information, including a list of faculty, and application instructions are available at the LAWDI page on the Digital Classicist wiki.

I'm excited to get to play a small part in this. I was on the faculty of the UVA Scholars' Lab's Institute for Enabling Geospatial Scholarship in 2009 and got to see first hand how an excellent institute is run. We'll try to live up to the high standards of #geoinst.
