Music Linked Data

MusicNet is pleased to announce a workshop on Music Linked Data, to be held on 12 May 2011, 10:30-16:00. The event will take place at the JISC London meeting rooms (Brettenham House (South Entrance), 5 Lancaster Place, London WC2E 7EN).

The morning will feature presentations by the MusicNet team (University of Southampton; MusicNet), David De Roure (University of Oxford; SALAMI), Simon Dixon (Queen Mary UoL; LinkedBrainz), Nicholas Humfrey (BBC; BBC’s music linked data), and David Flanders (JISC; JISC’s plans for linked data). In the afternoon presenters and other exhibitors will be available to answer questions, offer advice on using linked music data, and provide ‘mini-tutorials’ to attendees.

The event will be of equal interest to:
* computer scientists with an interest in music;
* music technologists;
* music librarians and library scientists;
* digital humanities scholars and digital musicologists;
* musicologists planning research projects with an online component or website.

There is no registration fee for the workshop, but please book your place beforehand by emailing David at D.Bretherton@soton.ac.uk. Please also let David know your area of interest so that the afternoon session can be tailored to the needs and interests of attendees.
