ARIADNEplus is organising a virtual workshop on Zoom for Wednesday the 15th June from 10:00 to 15:00 CEST on the topic of the semantic mapping of excavation data.

The presenters, both Partners and Associate Partners, will explore semantic modelling and the use of CIDOC CRM, the tools developed to assist researchers with mapping their data, followed by five case studies after the lunch break. The workshop also actively encourages participants to take part in the discussions and to contribute their experiences and ideas with a view to making excavation data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).

Registration is free for participants. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
