This workshop will take place in London, UK. Conservation documentation combines many different types of records. During this workshop the consortium will propose guidelines on best practices for encoding these records. Conservation domain expertise and sample data are needed.

The workshop is full but you can register here to be kept in the waiting list.

The workshop takes place over two days on 12-13 September. In the morning of Thursday the 12th of September, participants will attend a series of lectures introducing the principles of data modelling, the CIDOC-CRM and its relationship to Linked Data, as well as typical examples of data modelling in conservation. In the afternoon, sample conservation data will be examined and modelled. In the morning of Friday the 13th of September, a wider range of modelling examples will be presented, while in the afternoon participants will work towards proposing ways for modelling complex cases of conservation records from databases and documentation systems as well as image and document metadata. The capacity of the CIDOC-CRM to comprehensively describe conservation data will be assessed during these sessions. This workshop will bring together technical expertise around Linked Data but it will depend on conservation expertise around the interpretation of database records.

If you are able to contribute sample data which we can use during the workshop please contact us as soon as possible.
