Digital Humanities on the Semantic Web:
Finnish Linked Open Data Infrastructure and Its Applications

DARIAH Aalto Day 2022, November 30th (Wednesday), 12:00-18:00 (CET)
Room R037/1007a, Learning Hub Atrium, TUAS-House, Maarintie 8, Espoo, Finland, and in Zoom

This event is part of the DARIAH-FI program in the national FIN-CLARIAH intitiative.

Introduction: DARIAH and Aalto University

The Aalto University joined in DARIAH-EU in 2016 as a co-operative partner. The agenda for the collaborations has been related to building the Finnish Linked Open Data (LOD) infrastructure for Digital Humanities research (LODI4DH) and its use in real life applications, especially in the Sampo series of LOD services and semantic portals that have had millions of users on the Web. This work has been carried out by the Semantic Computing Research Group (SeCo) in collaboration with the Helsinki Centre for Digital Humanities HELDIG, University of Helsinki, and several Finnish and international memory and other organizations.

DARIAH Aalto Day 2022 summarizes this line of research on building LOD infrastructures and applications that were started in Finland by the "Semantic Web Kick-off in Finland" conference in 2001, and discusses next steps ahead in the new national DARIAH-FI initiative.

The workshop will a hybrid one with the possibility of participating the event physically at the Aalto University as well as through Zoom.
