Metadata Seminar at ASIST

I'm going to be giving a half-day seminar on October 12 in New Orleans in association with ASIST. This is something I have been wanting to do for a while. I feel like I've spent the past two years presenting Semantic Web 101 in 45-minute segments, and I really want to start moving on to 102, 103, etc. I'm hoping this seminar will fill that gap.

The topics I will cover at that seminar are:
  • Understanding data, data types, and data uses
  • Identifiers, URIs and http URIs
  • Statements and triples and their role in the 'web of data'
  • Defining properties and vocabularies that can be used effectively on the web
  • Brief introduction to semantic web standards
There will be hands-on exercises throughout the morning that give attendees a chance to learn by doing. I'm hoping that the exercises will also be fun. If you're going to ASIST and have any questions about the seminar, please contact me.

Any idea if a recording with audio and video will be offered?

Robert, that would be ideal but I don't think that capability exists. However, I am designing the course to be modular in a way that it could be presented as a series of webinars in one-hour "chunks". I'm working on some of the technical aspects of that now.

Sounds great, Karen. The presentation sounds like a gem.
