The 4th Summer Datathon on Linguistic Linked Open Data (SD-LLOD-22) will be held physically from May 30th to June 3rd 2022 at Residencia Lucas Olazábal of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Cercedilla, Madrid (arrival expected on 29th evening).
The SD-LLOD-22 datathon has the main goal of giving people from industry and academia practical knowledge in the field of Linked Data applied to Linguistics. The final aim is to allow participants to migrate their own (or other’s) linguistic data and publish them as Linked Data on the Web and/or develop applications on top of Linguistic Linked Data. This datathon series is unique in its topic worldwide and continues from the success of the previous editions in 2015 and 2017 in Cercedilla (Spain), and in 2019 in Dagstuhl (Germany). This edition is sponsored and organised by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) through NexusLinguarum, the “European network for Web-centred linguistic data science” COST Action (CA18209, https://nexuslinguarum.eu/) and funded by the European Union.
