First Linked Open Citation Database (LOC-DB) Workshop

We are pleased to invite you to the first Linked Open Citation Database (LOC-DB) workshop.

The workshop is intended to bring together librarians and specialists in OCR, Linked Data and reference extraction for an exchange about the advancements that LOC-DB and other projects have recently made in this field. The current Beta-version of the LOC-DB Software can be tested in hands-on-sessions. Finally, the perspectives of open citation data in libraries will be discussed together.

The one-day workshop will take place on 7th November 2017 in the Mannheim Palace (Fuchs-Petrolub-Saal O138) and is free for the participants. The main language of the workshop is German, but some presentations will be in English. Those who arrive in Mannheim on the eve are invited to join us for an informal dinner at 18:30 h (self-payed).

Registration for the workshop is now open until 27th October 2017. Please send a short e-mail with your contact details to locdb[at], and let us know if you want to join the dinner on the 6th november. If you have food intolerances or are a vegetarian/vegan, we would also be grateful for a brief note.
