COST Action SEADDA will be hosting the Linked Pasts VIII symposium in person in York, UK from 29 November to 1 December 2022, along with asynchronous online participation taking place 24-28 November.

As part of the programme, participants are invited to take part in a Hackathon using the ARIADNE Catalogue and the underlying Knowledgebase, the GraphDB triplestore which provides access to all the data in the Catalogue via a SPRQL Endpoint. More Hackathon information is provided here. Attendance is free but participants must pre-register.

The annual Linked Pasts symposium brings together scholars, heritage professionals and other practitioners with an interest in Linked Open Data as applied to the study of the ancient and historical world. Panels and working groups at Linked Pasts are more goal-oriented than a conventional academic conference, and activities and agendas are often proposed, developed and revised by all participants at the event itself. The Linked Pasts Symposium is a formal partner of the Pelagios Network.
